I’ve had the app a long time. At first I could only do e-books with it though (the audiobooks didn’t work). About a year ago the audiobooks started working too, and that has been great! There are still some improvements I would like though. I wish I could save a list of the books I have already read (ideally with some notes and a rating), for my own future use. There is no feature for doing that, so at the moment, I put books I liked, into my “wish list” (along with interesting books I haven’t read yet). While I’m talking about the wish list, I have some minor complaints about that too. It seems to automatically remove a book from the wish list once you’ve checked it out, and you can’t put it back in the wishlist while it’s checked out. This can be an inconvenience if you have the book checked out and it expires - if you don’t remember enough about the title or author, it can be difficult to find the book to check out again. There are some other things I would want to tweak after that. But it’s awesome that I can browse books, check out the books, and read or listen to them, all on my phone!
Definitely not a fan of this app. I’ve had it for a few weeks now and have primarily used it for audiobooks. I’ve only used it once for an ebook because the app was so horrible it ruined the book for me. The pages would not turn and when they did, it was often back a page or two or even to the beginning of the chapter. There was no rhyme or reason to which page I would end up on. No page numbers were even given, so it was nearly impossible to figure out where I left off. I made it to the beginning of chapter 4 of the book before giving up completely because I was so frustrated with the whole experience. As for the audiobooks, when they actually work, they work okay. Good luck getting them to work, though. It takes ages for them to download and even when they’re downloaded, pauses happen like they’re buffering. What is the point of completely downloading the audiobook to your phone if it’s just going to buffer? And when that happens, it never restarts on its own. I have to restart the whole app and hope I remember roughly where I was in the story because the app sure doesn’t know. Searching for a title through the app is pointless. Even having the exact title of a book won’t always give you the right title, despite my library system owning the rights to it. I can find it on the website itself, but searching through the app is a nightmare. Why my library system uses this, I will never understand. It’s downright awful.
I used to love this app, despite its occasional shoddy downloading and syncopations. It was just a small issue and I could still read my books properly. Now they have this new update where the layout is all different and I really hate it. Maybe it’s just on the phone, but now going to your book is a whole process and takes a long time to load with a stark white screen with a rotating green circle. And when it’s done it doesn’t even show the book. Before it used to be really easy to change the font size, but right now those new “updates” have the fonts ridiculously large that only fit about 10 word on the screen which makes it difficult to read and are preventing me from changing them. They claim the new updates are “fixing” the bugs but now it’s so glitchy. When you try to zoom out the screen behind the pages are a bright garish yellow. When you turn the pages you never know which end of the stick you’re gonna get. Either it immediately changes to the next page and you think somethings wrong, or you wait for about 5 seconds while staring at a white screen with a roaring green circle. The menu is now really difficult to pull up too, you used to be able to pull it up with a tap of your screen but now it never responds. Overall I am extremely disappointed with the new updates, and I would really prefer it if they changed it back to how it was.
I loved reading books using Axis 360 and read between 3 and 5 per week. Notice the past tense. I loved the ability to change fonts and font sizes, the comfortable amount of “white space” around each page in two-page view, and the simulated page flip. All of those, but especially the last two, made for easy reading in deep or skim modes. This latest update totally ruined the experience. I can live without changing fonts. Although it was quite a nice approximation of a real book to use the simulated page flip, I could get over it. However, what I cannot get over is the tiny amount of “white space” around and between pages. The text is crammed into tightly and extends so far to the edges that one’s eyes are constantly fatigued. No adjustment will fix this atrocity. It has completely destroyed the experience and I see no way to roll back to a saner and more comfortable version. Blah!! Update: Months later and the hits keep coming, regardless of the book or device or operating system being used. Pages won’t advance without adjusting font size up or down. Next page won’t load until the app is closed and reopened. Server access errors occur often, even with a downloaded book that was literally just being read and when there should be no server access. I could go on and on but nobody is listening. GO BACK TO THE WORKING VERSION BEFORE SOMEBODY DECIDED TO MODERNIZE—THE EXPERIMENT HAS FAILED!
It works well enough but has some glitchy stuff like SearchCONSTANT SYNCING PROBLEMS AT THE END OF A CHAPTER ON A DOWNLOADED EBOOK. I’VE CHECKED AND THERE ISN’T AN UPDATE AVAILABLE FOR THE APP AND I’M RUNNING IOS 13.3. SOFT RESET FIXES PROBLEM HALF OF THE TIME. IF YOU CLOSE THE APP, WAIT A LONG WHILE, AND TRY AGAIN LATER,IT WILL BEGIN TO WORK AGAIN. NEVER EXPERIENCED THE PROBLEM WITH AUDIO BOOKS. Search"CONSTANT SYNCING PROBLEMS AT THE END OF A CHAPTER ON A DOWNLOADED EBOOK. I’VE CHECKED AND THERE ISN’T AN UPDATE AVAILABLE FOR THE APP AND I’M RUNNING IOS 13.3. SOFT RESET FIXES PROBLEM HALF OF THE TIME." nytime you bounce to another app, when you go back to Axis360 it times out. You have to wait a few seconds for it refresh to the home screen then you must touch 'my stuff' and then choose your book from your checked out tab. Then you can resume reading or listening. Another wonky thing is the thumbnail images on your stuff . Every book on your checked out, holds, or wish list tabs will display the thumbnail of the book you are currently reading or were reading last. A lot if not most other items listed will display no thumbnail image at all. Big problem with this is the icon displaying whether it is an E book or audio book is on the thumbnail so there is no way to know. With limited exception the audio books play great and with no exception the ebooks display perfectly.
