Google Play Reviews

  1. guest-avatar

    Needs: 1) Bookshelf support for aspect ratios taller than 4:3. 2) small/medium/large pre-set sizes for font & margins. 3) THICKER, BOLDER FONTS (TYPEFACES) options. (4) Allow store browsing directly in the app. 5) Enable option to remove a book, but not storing in archive i.e. removing downloaded books should just remove them from the device, NOT send it to the archive too.

  2. guest-avatar

    Being in a place where I don't always have connection to the internet I sometimes expect to be able to read a book and when I start the application I see the message authentication failure and have to sign back in. sometimes this means that I'll go anywhere from one day two three months without being able to read the books that I bought from this application

  3. guest-avatar

    Running a rooted custom ROM is, I'm assuming, in their mind equals to being a thief. That's the only explanation i can come up with as to why this app crashes every time I try to launch it on both of my phones.

  4. guest-avatar

    App feels like it was made in 2008, really hoping for an overhaul one day.

    The apps are very slow eventho have a speed connection

    I like the app, more like I like the service. It quite struggling with the app at first but after few updates it become better. Not only that, I can read manga/ln in legal way and reread whenever I want. There are ton of free manga on internet but I want to contribute something to the author as well as the artist that works with them. And I want more bookshelf skin! But make it easier to get.

  7. guest-avatar

    I want to support this app, because it sponsors many of my fav youtubers, but god is this app terrible (sorry). It looks like an app from 2008, and its so slow and too difficult to use. Why does the store have to open through my browser? Also the popular section should be more inclusive and diverse in genres. The selection of mangas feel so bland, and the app is not a fun and easy experience to use. Tapas has a much better much better library and UI, and its a much smaller comic platform.

  8. guest-avatar

    Often does not allow reading if you have no internet connection, which is a problem if you live somewhere where power may be turned off for several days (ie. PG&E). Would be nice if we had some way to read when completely offline. While it seemed to be a bug, this has happened enough times that it has an effect, especially on a wifi-only tablet or when waiting in a low signal area...

  9. guest-avatar

    I like the app,and it's extremely useful and handy.It's just that the user interface is something that bothers me. The black bars at the top and the bottom really stand out compared to the rest of the screen,which I think is very beautiful. If that part of the interface was changed I would wholeheartedly rate it 5 stars

  10. guest-avatar

    Outdated UI, long loading times, no option to change text styles, no written reviews at the store (ratings only), and the cherry on top, the sync function randomly breaks down with no explanation. All in all this is vastly infirior app compared to almost all other ebook companies.

  11. guest-avatar

    Great source of legit translations app is good to use doesn't have full back end in English as it runs thru the Japanese store so purchases are better done on the wed site imo

  12. guest-avatar

    Definitely needs a UI revamp, it's not bad for what it is but the layout is very meh and I would prefer to use the pc version instead after all the trouble it took to install

  13. guest-avatar

    I dont understand why it can not run on chromebook's chrome os

  14. guest-avatar

    I use this app to read all my manga and lightnovels latley, it's fun to organise your collection with the different bookcases. The display is clear and easy to read and there's plenty of sales every month.

    An App With A Potential But Its Quite Janky And With It Saying Its "Free" Yes There Is A Free Preview And I Know If You Make It Entirely Free You Wont Get Income But Atleast Do It So If People Wants To Read It Offline Make Them Pay But With Internet Connection Make It Free As I Said I Hope This App Gets Better Im Looking Forward To It -A

  16. guest-avatar

    For some reason, I am unable to change the language from japanese to english. I looked it up and it told me to go to settings and then general but I can't find general anywhere.

  17. guest-avatar

    Extremely frequent crashing, constant errors and I have to re-sign in nearly every time I launch it. Fantastic content, good prices, but the app needs serious work.

    Best books / awsome books ever you can find any type of book you want in this website 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗☺🙂😇😇😇

  19. guest-avatar

    Oh my God I love this app it's the only manga app that has Kagerou daze.

  20. guest-avatar

    The app crashes now.

  21. guest-avatar

    Wonderful books that are easy to purchase and still support you favorite authors and translators

  22. guest-avatar

    Cant connect to server and read the book I bought

  23. guest-avatar

    Why do i get a page saying application error even though i just downloaded the app?

  24. guest-avatar

    App crashes on start on Razer phone 2. Used on other devices, relatively slow to load screens. It's frustrating that the store is not in the app itself. UI could really get a re-haul. Reading wise, I've had random crashes. No problems navigating the reader though.

  25. guest-avatar

    Choppy, glitchy, frustrating and so on. The UI makes you feel like you still own iPhone 3, the store is external so it's a pain to buy books, the curl page option is glitchy(they figured out how to do this years ago man). It is unpleasant to look at, read with, buy on and so on. I'm starting to understand why your marketing insists on the good deed of supporting your favourite creators. There's nothing good about this other than that you can give money to authors. Terrible. Just terrible.

  26. guest-avatar

    It's 2019 when I write this review, and this app still gives me vibe of 2009.

  27. guest-avatar

    The UI looks like one you would find in an app a decade ago. I don't like the idea of having to go to the browser to buy the ebooks, it doesn't fill very safe. I did enjoy that I can change looks of the bookshelves, it does make it feel more personal. Like I said at the beginning the UI is a bit annoying and not that appealing to the eye. I will be reading "Combatants Will be Dispatched!" after which I will critique my experience with the reading system.

  28. guest-avatar

    I do not recommend this app. It's horrible. Archaic UI and very buggy. This wouldn't be a issue if not for the fact that you can download you ebooks as epub. But it is impossible here. NO way around it. You can only read on website and their apps. I bought few ebooks and I'm very regretting I didn't buy them somewhere else. Never again...

  29. guest-avatar

    The reasons for the rating: clunky outdated UI, mediocre in-built reader, this app feels like half app/half browser, overall functions are not smooth, and user experience feels third-rated. How to improve the app: rebuild it with a visually appealing and neat UI. Features and settings should be in-built rather than interlaced/external. Why you should care? Promoting BOOK WALKER with the current app is counterproductive. A majority of users would like to read your digital books on their phones.

  30. guest-avatar

    Not bad but should be better.

  31. guest-avatar

    if you have a Tab S3 like me and have an external card. hooo boy. strap yourself in, trying to figure out how to get this awful app to recognize the proper path for your SD Card makes pulling your teeth look like a fantastic time. i figured it out once before, but now nothing i do works. Bookwalker, you seriously need to figure out how to build a usable app. this one is ugly and severly unintuitive.

  32. guest-avatar

    4 star for their store and image quality. They have a fairly large selection and the image quality is much nicer than say Amazon 0 star for DRM ebooks. Their ereader is not the best, which is fine. Let us use other ereaders then. I don't mind switching apps when I'm shopping. But having all my books be readable in one place is a must. I regret having ever bought books from them, as I have sense repurchased them just to get rid of the DRM problem.

  33. guest-avatar

    This app drains a ton of battery even when it is not actively being used. Everything takes forever to load unless you turn off any data connection on your device then it all loads instantly like it should. Why does my virtual bookshelf have a limit on how many books it can hold? It's just a folder on a computer let me fit an entire series on one shelf.

  34. guest-avatar

    the serves is good but the app is poorly designed. Not being able to buy books on the app is a big drawback and having a confusing layout reminds me of what I would have seen in 2006, not 2019. I would recommend the servis for easy access for books with a large variety and there is a variety of customization options. All that is needed is a updated UI and to be able to purchase on the app.

  35. guest-avatar

    I adore this app- very easy to understand and navigate. Could use some more titles, but it's easy to understand how that is a slow process ^^

    I really hope developers will hear me out here. I appreciate that integration with Google translate were added, but oh boy it's not usable at all. As far as I can tell, it has symbol limit, so you can't translate whole page at once - ok, but you can't even use it to translate a single word either. You can not just tap and have the word selected, most of the time you'll need to adjust the selection manually which is incredibly irritating - miss taps and double taps just ruin all your efforts

  37. guest-avatar

    Michael Sedillo


    Pretty good but could be more user-friendly. Also all transactions are done on their website (not in app) and will count as a foreign transaction taking place in Tokyo so your card could be declined/get a foreign transaction fee. This also means you pay in yen and sometimes this means you pay less for an ebook than you would elsewhere.

  38. guest-avatar

    This app maybe is a little slow, maybe interface could use a little update as it looks like it is 15 years old requiring unnecessary clicks for simple actions. Also fact that purchasing books requires a redirect to the browser is a minus. On the other side content is not so heavily region restricted as in other apps so you actually can buy books you want which is not given in most of the stores and associated shop does not charge extra 150% email delivery fee to faraway Poland as some stores do. All things considered this app may not be perfect, but by providing things other apps/shops don't it's the best app for the content it offers that I found so far.

  39. guest-avatar

    kludgy, confusing UI that feels very dating. No ability to buy books within the app. Downloads prone to fail, and a horrendous screen when trying to choose where to save on the SD card. but when you actually get a book downloaded, the reading experience is decent. I'll stick to their desktop app when I can.

  40. guest-avatar

    Im giving this one star. The UI and user experience is terrible. It is extremely dated and you should look into improving it. The store just directs you to the web page of the store so what's the point. I havent even bothered to get a book to read as I dont think this is worth paying for. Please improve the UI

  41. guest-avatar

    Elizabeth Higgins


    The reason for the thumbs down is ever since it updated it keeps telling me to update and I am trying to text or something and the website pops up. I can't finish anything on my phone without it piping up. I have had it pop up at least 10 times in less than an hour. VERY frustrating! Used to love to read on this all the time.

  42. guest-avatar

    James Henderson


    Feels like a bootleg 3rd party app from 2009 rather than an actual Book Walker app. The UI design is terrible and outdated, it doesn't actually have an integrated Book Walker store, and in general is in desperate need of an update. I looked at it for like 10 seconds and just straight said "nope"

  43. guest-avatar

    i was pleased that i was able to download a free book to test. The app is good, not great. it is definitely better than some of the reviews here suggest. I'm not sure if the app improved or my expectations are lower. i just bought a pile of books and am happily using the app.

  44. guest-avatar

    This is the most strict DRM I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. Because I am running a custom ROM, the app refuses to start. Same with any sort of root on your device. Thus, I cannot access the books I *legally purchased* on my phone because I am assumed to be a thief. Reading on a desktop browser constantly logs me out of the site because my "session expired," so reading there is frustrating as well. I was lured by an admittedly good deal, but I regret my purchase. Book Walker conveniently offers no form of refund either. Buyer beware.

  45. guest-avatar

    Good bookstore and the app work properly. However the UI of this app is terrible. I just feel like I am using an app that with Android 2.x UI design on my Android Pie device. Hope they can redesign the app UI ASAP.

  46. guest-avatar

    This is the least user friendly ebook app. The UI is just awful and it is in desperate need of an update.

    Would not let me register with my e-mail. Uninstalled. Do not waste your time.

  48. guest-avatar

    UI is old and horrible, looks like a Android Gingerbread era app. Every transaction need to be done on their website. The sole purpose of this app is to view the books you bought. In this modern era this kind of app is unacceptable.

  49. guest-avatar

    Slow as all get out. The UI/layout and snail pace of loading + downloading made me feel like I was using my very first smart phone from years ago... I'm honestly quite sad, as I wanted to read my books on my phone instead of on my computer. Sighs.

  50. guest-avatar

    Every time I try to open a book to read the app crashes, so it's pretty much unusable. Kobo and Kindle apps are much better, in my experience.

  51. guest-avatar

    ei.. yow... your app's too slow... -_- the content looks promising ... but with loading speed so slow (it's not even about my net connection) might as well uninstall this... . if you can fix this then , i'll rethink about reinstalling your app again... :)

  52. guest-avatar

    Great app, just check your purchase before logging out. They do auto pre-order next issue if you don't notice.

    nothing but a black screen, which stinks because i just dropped $120 on some books i really wanted to read, but i dont apways have my tablet. i would like to read on my phone as well but i cant till this is fixed. i run android 9 on a Razer Phone 2. (also, does it allow downloads? i only read manga on my phone if i dont have internet)

  54. guest-avatar

    App seems to have been stuck in the 90s. UI is horrible and the overall app design and user experience is just bad.

  55. guest-avatar

    Some Traditional Chinese characters can't be correctly displayed due to the font issue.

  56. guest-avatar

    Great app, haven't had any problems with reading my novels, just would like an update for the e reader

  58. guest-avatar

    Very solid app with access to a wide range of titles. Some UI difficulty with removing titles from bookshelf when done.

    The store is great unfortunately the embedded e reader for books is baren and doesn't have basic features like text to speech

    Book selection is excellent! The UI however... Feels like I've gone back to Android 4. 🤮

  61. guest-avatar

    honestly, the app is horrible. it's just a black screen and nothing else. you're better off reading the books you purchase on the computer or on the web browser.

    Kraziel Shinmeiryuu


    store is a nightmare to use. ui in app is ok but terrible for 1440p screens. store should be integrated not via a webpage that can't log in Facebook users.

  63. guest-avatar

    it sucks, it's horrible, it's outdated. using google's app store for bookis a better choice if you want to pay for books. and theres different settings for your comfort.

  64. guest-avatar

    App doesn't even load on my slate, and keeps loading a site saying device isn't supported had to be uninstalled

  65. guest-avatar

    even if i uninstall and reinstall and restart my phone it simply refuses to start. Just a black screen.

  66. guest-avatar

    Literally doesn't work. Like the app won't open. Not much more to say.

  67. guest-avatar

    I love how wide the manga library is on BookWalker.

  68. guest-avatar

    frankly i haven't buy any things yet on this - just browsing through. I hope audio versions of the light novels will come out.

  69. guest-avatar

    horrible outdated ui but at least I had no issue with it's performance but it really isn't worth it

  70. guest-avatar

    App works great, lots of good LN and manga!

  71. guest-avatar

    Pretty bad. Looks like a standard kindle shelf with empty books.

  72. guest-avatar

    It's great app but all manga has to pay

    The books are actually good, but for some reason it won't let me use CDwag's coupon code.
