  • Disappointment

    By 2dum2no
    ******** UPDATED REVIEW ********* Instaread Tech Support reached out to me and fortunately fixed my issue with the app freezing up. Based upon their timely response, I am changing my review to 5 stars. This app is great for catching up with the books I have been interested in without having to commit to buying and reading. (I think of it like the “Cliff Notes” version.) If I really like the book, I am able to purchase it and read the entire thing knowing that I won’t be wasting my time and/or $$$. I recommend this app for anyone with limited time and a desire to stay “current” with their reading. ************************************* I used to love this app. I’ve had this app for a long time (I purchased a “lifetime” subscription). However, I’ve noticed, over time, the quality of this app was deteriorating to the point of rarely working. It was my go to app when traveling because it allowed me to catch up on new reads. It’s disappointing to see a once great app become useless! I was also shocked to find, when deciding to write a review, that this app automatically defaults to a 5-star glowing review that is pre-written for you. Really?? Shame on you, Instaread!!

  • Help! App won’t open at all on my phone.

    By Arlp13
    I enjoy this app a lot but for weeks now, the app will not open on my phone. Any advice/bug fixes here?
  • A beautifully built tool

    By Loboazul79
    Thank you for making this! It is perfect for those who need to catch up on topics quickly.
  • Great presentation

    By iidshad43687
    I like the format of how the book summaries are discussed. The selection is not superb.
  • Took money

    By Savage sum
    Took 96.00 when first I signed up for monthly. Not happy
  • Cost money…Yes

    By fartgjfg
    I made an account and it wouldn’t let my read any books. It says that I have to become a member by due to other reviewers people say that it is a wast of money. I uninstalled this app immediately and I will think about it when this problem has changed.
  • Annoying

    By izclayton
    They have terrible customer service they don’t email you back and they don’t have a contact number if you need help with anything.
  • No valid support email

    By J.C.27
    I am trying to cancel my subscription/free trial because I accidentally subscribed and the email this company gives for customer support is not a valid email and there is no point of contact. I assume it’s meant to confuse people and be able to charge them for their services. I do not like when companies make it so difficult or confusing to cancel your account so they can most likely confuse their customer and end up charging them. Not happy with this site and app.
  • Watch out before signing up for a trial

    By John12SM
    BE AWARE Im a college student who likes to read. I saw Instaread and wanted to give a try so I signed for a trial. I was always planning that if I liked it i would go for the monthly subscription which is around $9. Well, it turns out that it charged me $90 dollars for a year round subscription that I didn’t sign for, and plus that, they don’t even have a customer service where I can try to fix this problem. I cancelled the subscription and it didn’t refund the money. It said: your subscription will still valid for 1 year. I haven’t see any similar online scams recently. They don’t refund, they don’t even switch from yearly to monthly. Once you paid, the money is gone. I needed that money for a college textbook. So BE AWARE
