Aldiko Limited part of our Books & Reference and have average installs from 10000000 to 50000000. Last Update Aug. 9, 2016. Google play rating is 84.3927. Current verison is 3.0.29. Actual size 15.0 MB.
Everything an ebook reader should be! Except that it destroyes batteries. For some reason, if you send it to the background, the app doesn't turn off automatically after some time, like most of the others. It stays on and reduces battery lifetime per day for 20-30%.
Credit card!!!???not safe!!!! I entered my credit card details. It's not a Google app so they take your money even if you don't have a credit card on Google wallet. The only way to remove it it's to go through emails in hope they will fulfil your request. So if you have children who love books and click on all the books they love , you are guaranteed to be poor in one day!
Doesn't support large pdf files I have a full colored pdf file that is 100+ mb. The app freezes and chrash every time I open that file. Please fix!
Image rendering bug still exists Basically any page with an image is displayed as blank. So this means if your book has fancy images on the start of chapters the whole page is shown as blank. Developers know about it, issue persists after latest update. I'm uninstalling after years of using the product and going with a reader that works.
Read Back.... Will this app ever have the option to read a book back to you (me)?? - For 5 stars please add this feature.....
It wont let me change covrer art .. really love this app. so simple and effective to use, great that it has no ads and I would love to score it a 5 but ..why cant I change cover art? it wont open epub boooks. It says that the book is loaded but when I look at the bookshelf it isn't there. I have no idea where my imported epub books are being loaded.
Illustrations in books Please do something about illustrations in books that either are cut as if it won't fit the screen perfectly unlike the texts, or won't show up at all. Please.
Problems with wifi Not sure when it started, but whenever it's running, I constantly reconnect to wifi. Not good if I have it open in the background, doubly so if I'm actively reading (stops page turning while the little message is displayed). A small gripe on a solid app. Fix it, please?
After update, Chinese words/don't cannot be displayed G8 reader. But after recent update, epub books encoded in Chinese no longer work. The words are now just blocks. Hopefully it is a simple fix.
Ads! The ads at the bottom of the page is damn irritating. It is distracting. The version before this update is good. But this one ain't.
Poor Customer Service If writing a bad review is the only way I can get some help, then so be it. I have emailed several times and I have yet to receive a reply. I need to activate another device, my eBook reader died. Over $100 in books and I'd like to read them. What a shame you don't care at all. IT HAS BEEN WELL OVER 3 MONTHS SINCE I STARTED ASKING FOR HELP AND I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD BACK. SICKENING.
Light problem I hate app doesnt let u adjust ilumination level, and there is hard to get opened general menu u have to touch many times for get there, it need to be more simple and with more tools for get a better experience
Quality took a dive After the last update, the app is very taxing to the RAMs, it also has a bug where it needs to open twice so I can read anything
Recent update issues Recently released update has cause multiple issues: unexpected crash, hanging, abnormally going to home screen while reading book, too much battery usage, high cpu utilisation. Please release fix for all above. Let me know where logs are stored so I can share them for analysis.
What happened? I really like this app but ever since the last update, the app disappears every time I turn off my phone, and I had to install the app every time I turn it back on. Please help.
When it works, I really enjoy this app. It navigates easily, I like the library views, and I can easily find the files to edit my cover images. But everytime it updates I have to uninstall and reinstall the entire app, and I loose all my collections, ratings, and where I was in the book. Very annoying.
So disappointed.. Same exact problems as before....absolutely NOTHING has changed...Really REALLY Really want to buy the app but I'm too afraid same thing will keep happening and then I'll waste my money with no refund which I saw in the comments happened to someone else...disappointed in the app and lack of customer service...looks like they respond only to the convenient customer concerns.....nice to know where you stand :-)
Lacks the dictionary feature This book reader is the best out there. It used to have a nice dictionary feature but now it shows meaning using browser which is kind of annoying. Hope it gets the dictionary feature again. Otherwise it is perfect.
It won't flow It keeps freezing when I search to define a word and closes on me. I want to be able to read and understand what I'm reading.
Ad's are irksome The ad that u have introduced after the last updates are irritating ? please do remove it.. I use the app for reading books and not to get obscene adds from dating sites
Still fails large imports I thought the author might have fixed the large book library import failure but it remains as it was more than a year ago. Still can't import more than about 875 books. After years of collecting I have thousands.Breaking the files in to into separate directories didn't work. Why can't you fix this AND speed up the import function, slow doesn't describe the wait.
Don't like the latest update EDIT: We got an update - and NOW it's crashing ... hopefully the next one will fix everything! OLD COMMENT: This latest version insists that I drag down from the top of the device in order to close the book. What a waste of time and movement! I also keep accidentally activating a drop-down menu, which wastes even more time and effort. Worst of all, there is no discernible benefit to the change! PLEASE can we have back the old, sensible way of closing the book?
The font and font size use to work however long ago but no longer works. Very disappointed. Cant read my books now too small of print. Please fix.
Poor customer service I paid for and downloaded several books and when my phone had to be replaced none of the books reloaded with the app. They say it's the books sellers responsibility but the app doesn't list the book seller anywhere. So I'm out at least $50 if not more on these books. Also it would dim when I was reading almost to the point of not being able to see the text and I couldnt fix it through any of the settings.
Fantastic app The best ebook and pdf reader available imo fully customisable text formating the only improvement would be a built in dictionary for online and offline viewing in a pop-up instead of a Google define search
No image and file not loading Book covers are not displaying. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but it still didn't work. The ebooks are not even opening saying cannot be opened while they are already on my library if I tried to import the book. Totally sucks! Thought this is the best eBook reader but now I hated it.
Yeah pretty good The one thing I would love to improve is if there was a text to speech option. Is there a text to speech option? Because there should be! We all agree that Google play books is crap don't make me go crawling to them for their text to speech option :/
The app was really good until the last update. Now I can't even open a book as it crashes every time :( I hope it gets fixed soon
Sucks Just need to make clear that I had to download it on 4 devices only because I need to read stuff from NetGalley. It may have many downloads, but it still sucks.
after updating this app a few weeks back, it would keep crashing evry time id try to load in new books from my files & on reinstalling this app, like, ten & some times since then, its still the same. Til ystrdae of course, wen ii tried again & iit worked ? *thumbs up* .. but now its gone back to square one & keeps crashing; idk, is it my phone ? please bring the previous version of Aldiko, this is a great app but this new update is killing it fo me !
The best reader has been attacked and diminished with this update and the app is barely usable. Used this app for about 2 yes and it was really the best. Sadly adobe has rubbished it . I. r einstalled it but my favourite reader is no longer the same. 3 stars only because not allowed to give 2 stars. Wish they allow the older version.and they have deleted some additional comments also. Give it a big 0 star. Its not ok
This app hates my phone? I have an s2 and the past few times that I have tried to install it works and then deletes itself. Can this be fixed?
Easy to use!! Really enjoy being able to read my books!!! I love this better than my nook!
Wtf? I thought that this was a very good app but after finding out that there is only 1 Agatha Christie book and absolutely 0 j.r.r Tolkien books I changed my mind...having these giants of the written world absent does not fair well for the allover collection of reading material...also u can buy audio books but app doesn't support them either......?????????????? I also noticed quite a lot of typos in the most unlikely places and not one image is visible on the pages....
Font size Main reason to use a reader is to read comfortably but it's not possible as the don't size is so small and can't be increased for pdf. By zooming in and out scroll option also has to be used for reading. Why download a separate app for books when the regular pdf viewer can do the same job.
Tottall shit. Brightness increased to maximum and doesnt changes
I used to love this app on mobile, but on tablet it just doesn't load any kind of images when opening an epub (cover or within book).
Crashes It crashes every time after new update whenever i try to read a book it doesnt even open. I used to love reading epub books on Aldiko but now it does not even work please solve the problem soon.
But... I read almost all of my epub books here. The PDF format sucks. Please make it accessible for mobi format books
What happened?! Was a GREAT reader but after the update, it always force closes everytime I open a book. I can't even open a single book. Please fix this, I need to finish reading. Thanks!
Работает через раз very bad
Говно!Книги только на английском! Shit!Books only a English language
Good Reader, Poor Storage Mgmt Copies imports off the SD card onto device storage. !! Even though the app itself is installed on the SD card. This completely defeats the purpose of the external storage. I have thousands of books, but can't make this my default reader, because of the storage issue. Good reader for those with only a few books, or lots of device storage.
Shutting down... Again It's doing it again.... My screen goes black and I cannot read... It's the second time for this and it's frustrating... Not to be able to read my book... I've found another eBook reader app and I'm thinking I will just delete this one for good... I'll give you a moment to fix it...
Best eBook reader out there, but ... It often offers you to download an eBook directly into the app whenever you are downloading one and it would download but when it's finished it tells you that this boom already exists on your library and now I don't know where's the downloaded eBook so I can add it properly or use a different eBook reader and I'd have to redownload it. Very annoying when the eBook I'm downloading is big.
Changing font size and night mode options don't work Despite the option in the settings the font sizes doesn't increase hence have difficulty in reading ebooks with small text pdf files. Zoom in option isn't helpful in such a case as it enlarges entire page and i end up contiously scrolling left to right to read every line. Also the night mode option is inaccessible .
Smart reader but. Pity it doesnt read rtf, makes mess in folder structure (changing book name in app doesnt change folders/files). One thing would win me tho: work with independent TSS (like brilliant Ivona) to read book aloud.
The Best Ive downloaded like a dozen of pdf readers and this is the best for me. I would like to request for a scrolling type of reading, not like flipping pages. Also i hope it could connect and use offline dictionaries thats already installed in my mobile. But all in all this is the best and I recommend it highly
OK I love reading books and this app is just the right one for me although it consumes too much space and battery. I'll give 5 stars if you fix these.
I downloaded it a month ago it was working fine......I started reading American gods a day ago n its getting stuck at every single page after I read some 250 pages....plz suggest...file is working fine on other PDF readers
Recently updated... and it keeps on force closing everytime I open a book (dunno if the problem is my phone or this app T.T ). But been using this app for almost 2 yrs now and its one of the best book reader app :) recommended by my friend. Hope it'll be fixed and stops crashing :( . *addtl note* : And I've already tried reinstalling twice to see if itll work, but it still keeps on crashing...
Inconsistent It's annoying sometimes because you don't know which version of aldiko you will be encountering when you read. There are times when it's working perfectly, and there are times when you click the book, it will take you to the library or your home page and not allow you to read. It's malfunctioning and it's irritating. Please fix this. I tried turning off my phone in hopes that when i open it again, i will be able to read once more but i was disappointed because it's not working properly. Thank you.
Great The only reason i gave it a 3 star was because i have it downloades on my tablet and my phone by the accounts cant be linked so when i want to read something that's on one i have to download it again to read it and find where i was on my tablet and fix it on my phone but other than that its great i read all the time and i love the look of it as well just wish if it was downloaded on one thing you could connect accounts
Almost 5 ☆ :) this reader is the best one, has exactly what i need, especially love tbe function to change pages with the volume button. BUT: why the h*** did you remove the option (in the edit window) to add my own book cover? ??? Now all my books before this stupid update look gorgeous and the next ones are.. FIX THIS PLS!
Ads even when we want to read a book now?? Always loved this app. By far the best book reader I've ever used (while it was ad free). I refuse to go premium for what was free before update. Fat cat capitalism strikes again. Greed
Newest update wrecks app with adverts I have been a long time user of the Aldiko app and its been brilliant... I use everyday on the way to and from work... but the newest update has brought up a warning in ES file explorer that Aldiko now wants permission to see all accounts on my phone! Why? Its a book reader app not the CIA! ALSO... the newest update is riddled with adverts... go to open an ebook and it shows you adverts that you have to X out of! And it shows banner adverts at the bottom of the library page now... all the time! DELETED APP.
Screen dims while reading a book The app was working fine until couple of days ago. Now, whenever i open a book to read, the screen dims to a great degree. It's straining the eyes. any way to fix this issue?
Best reading app EVER. Since I discovered Aldiko, I've rarely opened my other reading app. Amazing!!
Good app, But it would be better if there was more colours than black and white. Eyes are getting tired too fast when I choose black and it's awfully painful to read at night. But when I set white it becomes too brightly! Maybe the colour of old paper will solve the problem...
Real book Would be perfect if page turn animation and colour like an actual old paper can be updated.
Brilliant app Awesome app. It would be really awesome if the page flip animation came back. Cant find it in the settings.
Love it BUT But I wish you could sync it so I have the same books on tablet and phone I have used this for a long time and have lost books when changed phones X
I love this reading app and use it daily! Works with Overdrive, but gives you great customizable options and a widget to create shortcuts :)
Great app. This is a very good application. It's not as user-friendly as the one I use regularly and doesn't have as many features but it's still very good. And it opens DRM files, which the other one doesn't.
You're the best eBook reader Thanks for sharing the knowledge of literature around the world. Such masterpieces should be available without a price to make mankind a better place to live in and to inspire the next generation to share their thoughts.
Great android app Love reading on my tablet but only wish there was an available ios app so that I could sync and read on the go off my iPhone too!
The best I have used other readers.. but im always drawn back to Aldiko.. the best reading app by far!!
Loving this! I personally like Aldiko over other readers becsuse of its features! Keep up tge good job team.
Permissions I like it alot but why does it need permissions to access my accounts? What could you possibly want with my accounts information?
Best Best parts of UB Reader and Pocketbook merged into one. Adjustable day and night themes, well laid out library. Feedbooks. Almost perfect, would love the inclusion of infinite scrolling but it's a trivial matter that doesn't detract from how good this app is.
It stops EVERY TIME I want to highlight or define something! Please fix this.
The best! The only ebook reader I use.
Crash It keeps crashing when im trying to access my options :(
Works good I use this more than my kindle
Works great Can't really fault it. Works well
Useful Allows choice of colour for background and font, allows allows change is font size, screen brightness control, has a nice shelf view and reads all epub files on my phone. Books can be bought or transfered from laptop.
Fine but... Kindly provide Auto rename facility in this App. Whenever I try to add any new downloaded file it says the file already exit & it doesn't allow me to add that new file. Kindly look into this.
Was good now bloat Used to be a 5, now just fails constantly and spams ads
Not able to adjust brightness
Most user-friendly app of its kind Havent found anything to dislike about it. I also found it to be newby friendly, & i have been satisfied enough to not download any other e-reader type app. Well done
The Best eBook reader, by far It have exactly what is need to read anywhere, I don't know why they update it, for me it is perfect.
No longer works after update. Previous version worked great. However, after update, my book covers no longer appear in the app and my books no longer load/open. Odd thing is, that when I open the book through my file manager, then the file opens in Aldiko. What's the story here?
Practical Easy to use, no complains at all... Keep up the hard work :)
Execellent Very nice and professional.
Good app It is a good app to read epub files. It would be better if it had a dictionary.
Ok It's okay but I have one question. How do you delete your account?
Annoying ad Pls remove the full page ad
Good Good arrangement of books, love it
ALDIKO Love this app
Best and most useful application.
The best The best ebook app
Ad riddled mess
Used the app for some years without problem and still enjoy reading with it but it now gives me an error when trying to return borrowed documents to the library. Not a big deal as they are automatically returned eventually but I don't like keeping books unnecessarily given the limited number of copies available.
Books not found I would have given five stars, but could not find my favourite books by James Hadley Chase.
Not working with magazines (mainly PDF) Imported magazines won't reopen on the second viewing. The app recognizes their presence, but I have to re import and replace to view again...annoying.
Dictionary Most people have dictionary installed in their phones. It would be great if you could integrate that. Because then there will be no need of visiting the Internet every time.
Won't download error 963 - Resolved I've been a long time user and very happy with the app but since last update something went wrong. Thanks for the reply. I un-installed the update to play store and that fixed the problem. I've lately been having problems with updating all of my apps, but that's a Play store problem.
I've been using this app for the past 3 years. Used it on 2 different phones as well as a tablet. Could not ask for better convenient reading if I leave home or after a long working day!
Need to support external storage I will highly recommend this app if it can store the ebooks in the external sdcard. How near will it be?
Very handy piece of app I was introduced to this app by my wife. So far so good. Its handy and helps organise all my ebooks in one place. This makes searching for a particular ebook easy.
Installation problem I had this app installed but couldn't update it last time so I deleted it and tried to download it again but could not do that...
Inspired I've tried almost every other book app and this one beats all the others by leaps and bounds
Best there is. I have tried many other apps but no other comes close.
Great but.... I have used this app for years, but is it just me experiencing dim pages when looking at books? Even with s5 on full brightness? Very difficult to read.
Great but... The app is only missing an integrated dictionary, so I could look up words without switching to browser or other dictionary app. I would rate 5 then
Doesnt sync with hp. I ve deleted the file but its still appear on bookshelve. I clicked on it only to find out thet its actually empty.
Cover The only thing I don't like is that even when I am in the details for a book, trying to long press on the cover photo it does not give me an option to change it.
Peter Great app for reading ebooks I hope you include a feature for audio within the app
Still the best ebook reader on Google Play. Meets or exceeds all the criteria for a great reader.
I will be buying this app I have been using this app for about 3 years now on 2 different phones. I love it and would also appreciate having a background selection, like paper and the return of the page turn effect would be welcomed. But I will be buying this app regardless of the missing features. It is worth it especially for all the features it supports!!!
Few public domain books... Only few fairy tale, fable, folk tale, and short stories books in the public domain category. Please upload more.
Give control & flexibility to the users Please add more easily accessible settings for advanced users. Once place with all settings, table inspiration from Cyanogenmod 13 settings menu. And please let me configure each hardware button myself..
Aliko Reader Love my reader! It's light, easy to use and has made reading in bed so much better than trying to hold a book!
Great This is a great app. I've got it synced to my public library account (UK) and I can borrow ebooks directly through Aldiko. I'm reading books for free that I'd have to pay for on Kindle.
Aldiko easy reader You have to pay 13$ for one book in it I hate it
Great app Would like the visual options while reading to be more accessible.
Annoying to sign in After the update I have to sign in every time when I want to read my books. I find it annoying. App also gives the message that it has stopped more often, then I must go through the whole process again
Great App None app match the satisfaction Aldiko gives.
Regularly find cover not displaying properly on bookshelf and sometimes only see blank pages. Otherwise a good app for ebooks
Best book app I've tried many apps but this one is the best. I'm an avid reader ?
Great reader/ always starts with ads Thank you for a beautifully designed reader. I have been enjoying it for 2 years but ever since ads appeared right before you start the reader I have lost my passion for this app. There are alternatives that are free yet not add flooded.
Great app, but... Love the app, but it has started putting ads in at start up. I understand needing to fund your work, but I think there should at least be a premium version to buy that is ad free.
Not so great now You were perfect,few months ago before I updated. What hapened with "notes" and "higlights"??? Is there a way to go back to older version of the reader?
Awesome app I read alot and this is the best i ever used!!!!
Best Android App to read existing ebooks and it's easy to use.
This is perfect! Much better than that "UB Reader" You don't put stupid and unnecessary ads, the interface is perfect and it's light. And you even have a store to buy books! Thanks!
Great I love it because I like to read and so this app is perfect
Suggestion I, may be we, have to search some difficult words in dictionary. We can use 'share' feature for that reason. And it takes three touches to finally find the word we search. May be, it can be reduced to two touches. :)
Love it . No matter what, I always come back to aldiko. Have been loyal to it for so many years now. It is the best, most comfortable app for readers. The most consistent app on my phone.
Very useful. But I couldn't buy a book The app is one of the best. .. but I tried buying a book and was unable. It rejected it
Suggestion User friendly interface, but kindly add a feature that allows to search the book or the document, it can be tiring to scroll between hundreds of files.
Updated review. I've been using Aldiko for years. My first review was for version 1.2.14, and I had been using it for a while then. I recently upgraded my phone and did another pass at e-readers, but this is still the best reader I've come across and I've tried about everything I could find. It offers great customization, I can set the screen how I want it so its not a flashlight in my face at night, Great selection of free/public domain/creative commons books through Feedbooks. Imports eBooks I check out from my library. It does what I want with minimal fuss. If I had to lodge a con it would be that occasionally, with some books that have images, eg maps in the Games of Thrones series, the images are at best the size of the page. No way that I can find to zoom or otherwise expand an image. Very rarely is this an issue for me so just a minor grip compared to the otherwise great app.
Tried different Always came back to Aldiko. Just the best reader app
Sucky transition animation Overall good but sucks when it comes to aesthetic appeal. Atleast you can improve the transition animation when changing the pages. It looks really choppy amd i am using a note5
Awesome reader This app has all the settings I want. I don't even have to buy an e-reader!
Would love the ability to setup a shelf for a topic or author. For example, let me put all cookbooks on a shelf and all workout related reads on another. The collections feature does this, but is not as visual or the default view.
lovevit Awesome app...it is like my book shel....yep if you (Developer) would make it's reading style/Graphics like a original book....it will be superbb...????
Unbelievable I tried so many apps before using it and also during but nothing came close to it. Simply awesome. Trouble free, fast and simple UI. Keep it up!
Newest Updates Flawed Now we get ads consistently, the book images won't show, importing causes app to crash, along with all these other random things crash the app. Uninstalling after a frustrating episode of trying to get this to work.
Love this App, but please include a feature for it to be able to read Mobi files
App is good but.. There is lack of indian books
Good reader. Req: Would be cool if files could be sorted by descending date, so importing would not take forever scrolling file lists on a narrow text line.
Too bright Cant adjust brightness when reading
Usefull app User friendly. Five stars. Thumbs up.
Annoyingly brightness Ive used this apl for years But the brightness need to lil dim. It'll healthier for eyes ??
Not as good as I'd like Missing features: I'm not able to rename, print or easily annotate a document. Page selection is clumsy and top of page menu difficult to get to appear.
Very good reader The interface is very intutive. It would have been better if mobi format is supported.
Suggestion- please try to add dictionary to the app I have to search for hours in dictionary to understand difficult words. Please help me
Awesome app.Working very nicely after the update.Lots of thanks to the app developers.
Great I've been using this app for three years. It works great
No option to sync the books across devices? I don't need all the books, atleast the one I'm reading now?
Perfect! I so love this app. It is organized and easy to use.
The best reader
Exactly what I wanted!
Awesommee app reader
Was fantastic now just good Overall still best ebook reader for android, however a few updates ago the dimming feature was changed and now menus come up at regular brightness when I'm trying to read at night with the font dimmed which is painful for my eyes. Also I had purchased the pro version but for some reason my purchase doesn't show up anymore and I'm back to the free copy with ads.
Problem with dl'd books I have been able to download this app again however i can't see any of the books i have downloaded to my aldiko on previous devices even though i have been signed into my aldiko account on both devices. Is this a bug or am i unable to do this? If i am unable to see previously downloaded books when i install on a new device and sign into my account what is the point of signing in?
Recent frustration I've used this app for a while and like the way it works EXCEPT the book cover is blank white or black. Where is the cover photo and info that showed on the website when I bought the book?
Comfortable reader/bookshelf I needed a easy to learn reliable app and Aldiko is that. I also wanted a clean low memory & maintenance app so I won't have to replace it any time soon. I just want to curl up with a good book! This app is perfect.
Working better now Developer has been helpful in trying to deal with meta book problem that implied that books were already on the bookshelf. A great improvement.
Dictionary Please create an in-app popup dictionary plugin instead of just taking us to Google. I read on my tablet and sometimes don't have internet access not to mention leaving the app to look up a word is such a hassle. Also please let us rearrange books in our collections in a custom order.
Paid for TTS, got nothing! I wanted to have text to speech read the book aloud, the free version said I needed to upgrade to premium for TTS, the pro version removed the TTS button! False advertising!
Slowed right down I am rereading some of my old epubs and since the last update there is a 5-10 second delay before the page flips. Super annoying. Samsung galaxy s7
Great app. Great app i absolutely love it. Only issue is spelling errors, not a huge deal but if anyone knows of a fix I'd love to hear it.
Some problems Seems to have some problems on One Plus two. It lags like crazy and crashes alot. A fix would be appreciated.
Unusable I used to love this app, but after I upgrade the phone and new version of Aldiko, all of my Chinese books become unreadable. It's been 6 months and there is no solution yet. Very disappointed.
Great App, Great Support Ive tried many ebook readers and this one is the only one that has a inverted color scheme, no distracting font, and a non distracting page turning animation. Last update i had force close issues. Within hours my email was replied to and i was sent a working debug version.
And now.... They changed the way you edit the details without telling their customers. I found it by reading the reviews. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Great app.. However. It was working fine until today. It gets to showing all the books I have downloaded. Once I select a book the app just closes and I'm staring at my phone's home menu. Kind of frustrating especially as I am in the middle of a particularly good read. Please fix this ASAP. The app is great otherwise! Good job.
Great reader I have tried a lot of readers and this one for not only looks great but delivers everything in a way that is satisfying. The only problem is the error, some kind of curl error that keeps rising again and again when I try to open the books for the first or it would be when the books gets downloaded into the reader. Just correct this small error and it would be wonderful.
Awesomest book reader ever I love books and require a good reader aldiko is the best I've found no complaints!! You deserve the 5 stars
Okay... It keeps freezing my phone. I have to actually open up a book to get the settings and that is where my phone freezes. I restarted my phone and it still did the same thing.
Before Update - great, After - awful Before the update it was easy to see my ratings for books, now it's different - can accept this change BUT since the update I can't tab on a word and copy it because when I do, it stops responding and crashes. Just so inconvenient! If problem isn't fixed soon with a better update I'll be looking for a new ebook reader for my tablet. I also have this problem that when I tap to page forward it actually pages backward...
Unbearably slow Every page turn takes several seconds in a long (≈900 pages) EPUB book on a new phone.
Please display the last page I read The app is good but it would be better if it displays the last page of the book I was reading not my entire library.
The best free ebook reader Edit: for heavy pdfs the reader is too slow. For example, going from the top to bottom (when zoomed) hangs for few seconds. Page changing also too slow. Use other readers for heavy files. But in overall experience, this is the best eBook reader for free in the android market. I love it and it runs great on my tablet and phone. If the words selected could be directly looked up in an offline dictionary on my phone then it would be great!
Can't import files more to this app after lastest update I dunno when i opening my new file using this reader book, the pages comes out but only blank pages shows.. Before this reader book was greatest and always succeed.. now I'm disappointed :(
Importing failure I appreciate the software and use often. Recently, it fails to import Vietnamese books, started with importing notice then went disappeared without importing success so no book imported at all. Not sure why. I have to use EBOOK READER to import these books. Can some engineer look into it? If Aldiko can fix this, I will ONLY use Aldiko.
Adobe authorization Following the latest update, I am unable to open my DRM books. App says I need to authorize my device. It was authorized previously. Now Adobe says I have maximum amount of devices authorized. Unable to get any help with unauthorizing this device or any of my older devices. I can't use this app anymore. Time for a new app.
Best reading app EVER. Since I discovered Aldiko, I've rarely opened my other reading app. Amazing!!!!
Words aren't showing any more Always use this app but recently when I add new books to my library the words aren't there, really gutted because I have had to use another app for my books
Not the same This was always my go to app. It's now terrible. Whenever trying to read a book or follow directions I have saved, it crashes and I have to try again. I find myself taking screenshots as soon as I open document, just incase in freezes and closes up. Very frustrating, currently looking for a new app to use. Samsung S5 user
Where have all the indie authors gone. I would gove 5 stars if i could find them. Im thinking of trying some new readers
Thank you! I love this app! I don't stop reading! (Please assist with Request #32664)
Worth a 5-Star Amazing App...hooked me on to E-books. Just tat der is a small bug. Whenever I search anything, D app crashes wen I try to exit d search
Ive been using this app for quite sometime now. Its OK. I've been waiting for an update that would let you access your ebooks across other devices, but still no update since then. Huge disappointment! I hope this becomes available soon!
I love this app and I 've never had a problem with it before but now something's happened and there is a few seconds delay when I change the page and it reaaally annoys me...please fix it . Samsung j5
Wish for night time reading feature Love this but my tab used to let me switch to dark background for night time reading. Is it coming for phones too?
Dictionary The app is all-good but I hope that you can make a way to connect the reader to a dictionary like Merriam-Webster and such.
Updated review I've been using this since the beta version came out. It's great. I love the fact that I'm not tied to any service, not stuck with any particular place to get books. I'm still leaving my review at 5 stars, but I've noticed lately that Aldiko crashes whenever I try to 'view in browser' from inside the app. Please fix this!
Problem soved :) [Loved this app and I have used it for years already but...what happened with the update? Whenever I switch to night mode the book I'm reading would go back to the beginning and sometimes weirdly it would even switch to another book that I haven't read lol]
For 2 reasons 1. It won't let me read any of my books all it says is " can't open file " ....2. I haven't a clue if this is server issue or something else sure wish I could get some reading done but can't thanks a lot adliko from preventing me from reading any books that I have saved on your app you know just how to lose customers because if this isn't fix I will go some other that is reliable
I want to rearrange my books I want to rearrange my books in the order that I want instead of having the app do it for me. Will change to 5 stars if it's done.
Why can't it support FB2 ? Whyyy?!!!..., and also night mode would be great.
Ads are distracting Its a decent e-reader, but the constant ads ruin the experience.
progress reset since the last update, sometimes the progress on a book I'm reading goes back to the cover when I switch lightness mode. Can you fix it? the app is perfect otherwise. thank you.
Night mode is broken The collors dont work, when i set it black with any color text it shows the text grey
Can you bring an update for sepia mode? I really like this app but a sepia colour scheme is always better!
Free Books... Finally i got the free book here...i too had a love story...awsum
Irreplaceable Aldiko's the best reader for me. I've been using the app for years now w/o any fuss. It's simple and easy to use and navigate. Perfect for pdf and epub. I would really love it though if i could read mobi files on it.. Got some mobi here that i still can't read. I tried to use other reading app but, ehh (headache). Please add mobi, please?
Decent App! I have been using Aldiko since the day my kindle stopped working. It works smoothly, doesn't have ads and unlike the other eReader apps out there it doesn't have an awful UI. I started using it initially as Play Books required you to upload the books first. It doesn't have a search bar and neither does it support MOBI format.
New update I've been using this app for almost 2 years now and i love it. After the new update, I only have 1 issue. I find the different color highlights when i long press on a word totally redundant since it just tells me that i need to download the premium version for that. Aside from that, I'm loving this app. Best book reader in the playstore.
Bad update! Same problems + or - than other users. Books won't upload at all tho' the notification says it's happening. Titles are not recognized. Wants internet connection to upload and then still doesn't upload. Really crappy update, chaps! Just bring back the old version and don't bother with asking for "further info." The old verdion was perfect. Ta.
Not user friendly anymore After the recent update the app aint user friendly, I always get incomplete messages and I can't seem to download all my books. I've been using the app for many years and was but happy am getting disappointed. Kindly resolve urgently
Mostly good but problems with images The app works fine but what is a great problem is the handling of images. I often read books with graphs and diagrams and they are displayed so small, unable to change their size, that they are effectively rendered illegible which makes the app useless for reading such books.
Unusable interface The user interface displays thumbnails of book covers too small to make out any detail, cuts off titles after a few words and crowds the screen with useless functions while obscuring the ones you want. Should you suceed in "checking out" a book, actually displaying the text takes dozens more taps (if you're lucky). After the cover picture of a book, expect blank screens instead of text to be displayed.
Have been using Aldiko with calibre companion for a couple of years, was great until recent update. Now in order to transfer books from calibre companion to aldiko on my galaxy tab4, I have to have the wifi on. Kind of silly that the wifi has to be on in order to transfer books from one app to another on the same device, but I guess they want the wifi on so they can make you watch the ads. Too bad, will be looking for another reader.
What happened?! After the update I'm having the same issue as the other users. When I try to add a book it won't let me. It says the download is complete and when I open the book, only the first few pages appears.. the rest is all blanks. The book already downloaded and I open it through the built in app for pdf but not through aldiko. I have to look for another good alternative app!
What IDIOT made that change? I run Aldiko Pro for stuff I own, and Aldiko Free for stuff I borrow from the library. Now some dimwit in your Dev team has decided that when I click on the icon for the latter, it's going to launch the former. You didn't implement a "Would you like to ...?" question first, just straight to THE WRONG AP! I can no longer get in to my library (and other) books. Change it back! I run both for a reason! Stop making stupid assumptions!
So damn happy Couldn't remember the name I had this years ago. I have spent hours downloading top ereaders and couldn't put my Pottermore purchase on any of them!! Thankyou aldiko now I can read my birthday presents
Not as good as it used to be Used for about 3 years, great for library ebooks. Just reset my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10. Now every time I download I get a message download incomplete, but when I check it seems to be fine. Just wish that it would store previously downloaded items so that I didn't have to find them to put on again.
Have used it for years.... Love it.... except.... My friends and I wish the book shelf had a drag and drop option so we could customize the order of books. Granted there are several customizations/sorting options but the drag and drop would be the ultimate!!
This used to be my favorite app but after the recent update, I can't add books to my library without internet connection. All it says at the notification is download incomplete and I can't find the files in the library. It's really a drag. Please fix this.
For the old version Please make the old version back. The updated version ruined it. Now I cannot transfer the books from my sdcard to read! it needed internet connection now. Seriously, what is going on? Ain't the updated version suppose to make the app better? Please fix this. Thank you very much. God bless Aldiko. ♥
Latest update is trash All my downloads are no longer automatically downloaded to my library after the recent update. Now it seems it has to download AGAIN to the library. Please fix this or better yet, give us back the old version because it worked better..
What have you done?! I've used this app for years, my favourite book reader...but since the last update you've destroyed what I once considered a near perfect app. I could go into detail but previous posts have said it all...you've lost a very loyal user...
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!! Great ebook reader until I updated it. Now it won't open books without WiFi even though I unchecked the setting that requires WiFi for books to be uploaded. Come on, Aldiko. Now I'm just trying to get the old version back.
Download issues The app worked perfectly almost a year, now for the past 3 weeks I'm having issues downloading files in the epub format. I keep getting an error message saying that no 'internet connection could be found', even though I don't experience connectivity issues with any other app or on the browser.
Recent Update I've been using this app for 2years now then I updated it yesterdey. Honestly, I don't like the update they made because you won't be able to upload your new book without using internet. It will just say download incomplete even if your book has no error unlike before that you can easily upload books to the app. Though I figured how to add new books without using internet but it's a hassle going through files from my storage looking for a certain book. Hope you can fix this problem.
Love it but facing problems recently. I have used this app for more than 2 years now and I love it but after recent update I'm having issues. I get the message 'unknown title' and download incomplete and the book wont open. But the books are just fine in my files. Please have it fixed i would hate to switch to other reader since I love Aldiko.
Not working anymore! I loved this app. Had it for over 3 years. But last week it just stopped working. File unable to load! I have over 100 books in my library and some i can't download anymore. Have emailed support and no answer. Please help!
Not as good as before Less user friendly than before. The It is also harder to load ebooks. It's a shame because this used to be the gold standard ereader app that all others were juded by.
I've been using this reader for the last 2 years without any problems but now it seems that every new book I try to open just causes the app to stop and even if the book file is stored on an SD card in my device the app wont do anything if there's no internet connection. If I were the developers I'd roll back to the last version because as things stand it seems like I'm going to have to look for a new reader.
Problem in viewing. I download the the quest of heroes by morgar rice graphic novel. When i open it did not show the book properly both in landscape and portrait.
phone storage full. Make an option to select specific folder in sd card for all book storage. now all my books are stored in a folder named 'ebooks' and eating up phone memory. solve this problem and i will rate 5 star. thanks in advance
Slow loading It has nice features and all but I can't get my ebooks to open, it takes about 2 hours just to load and once I swipe it starts loading again, please fix this.
You lost me It boggles my mind when app updates are devastatingly regressive or just plain destructive, across all platforms. If it ain't broke don't fix it. I'd love to continue using Aldiko but it crashes literally every time I open it after this recent update. The rare occasions it opens a book now is after many frustrating minutes of waiting for it to load. Aldiko is now a steaming pile of garbage. Guess it's PDF reader now? Joy. 3 stars only because up to this point, it was literally the best app I'd ever used.
Great reading app and now my main Thanks for helping me brighten the screen. Didn't know on the S7 that sliding a finger on the left side adjust the brightness. Now all is well and I can see again.
Through the years I've been using the app for 3 years and it works! I'v even recommended it to my friends. There are minor glitches but they're fixable.
The new update ruined this app! Was my favorite now I'm uninstalling it!
Not able to open books after recent update...kindly help... lost books as there arose a problem regarding the files that cannot be accessed after the update
Galaxy note 4 Is there any specific reason why my aldiko stopped reading Chinese characters books suddenly. It worked fine until yesterday...
Bye Cant change the name, author and cover pg anymore?? You guys really add rubbish functions and delete the essential one? Cannot add file without internet, opening book details and got blank page, no search function..greatttt
Better this time!! I had a problem with this app previously but now it is the best and only reading app I use! Nice selections, great design! Keep up the good work!
Need to read pdfs? Here's your go-to pdf reader. It's good for other book formats, too. However, I am running into some problems with the newest update (I can't locate a book that is definitely on my shelf, my bookmark function is gone or moved somewhere that I can't find it, and I can't edit some of my files to change the way title and author are listed). But I've emailed the developers with my list of issues, so I hope to hear back soon.
Probs with new update. Aldiko seems to have bugs with the latest update. When downloading ebooks, it constantly tells me 'download incomplete'. Hope the bug is worked out soon.
Excellent ebook reader app! I've been using this app for 3 years & love using it for my ebook library. It's easy to use. The devs keep it updated & it runs very smoothly, quickly loading my books. The file sizes are small, which is very useful for me, & that way I can have more books! The navigation is straight forward, & the settings choices (bookmark, brightness, orientation, etc.) are handy. Great app to have for my ebooks.
