App Review: Free Books

by M. J. Joachim

With so many ways to get free books, this app truly didn’t do it for me. It’s filled with numerous links, and appears to be a marketing tool for the makers of it. Formatting is difficult at best, and the idea of checking everything before you buy, in case it’s not free - well, why don’t you just login to Amazon and search free books instead? Then you know if it’s free and don’t have to click the links within this app to find out.

The other thing I noticed is that it doesn’t appear to be updated consistently. Maybe it’s only the few times I tried to check it, but it seems many of the same books stay on the main screen for quite a while. It could be that the app is difficult to navigate, though that seems unlikely since it’s a fairly simple format being used.

I’m cautious about an app with so many links and what seems to be so little to offer, so I would advise finding other ways to get free books. A simple search on Amazon or Google will likely point you in the right direction, without all the added hoops to jump through or links to click on.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope this review helps you in all your free reading adventures.
