Pros and cons of Epic! app for iPhone and iPad

Epic! app good for

I really love this app. Its great for kids of all ages. :) completely recommend it.
My son loves it! The only improvement I would make is having the ability as parent to lock or unlock levels as well as to track activity per book.
I love children books rather than adult fiction books. I like audiobooks too. Keeping up.
Been looking for an app for reading, love to read but I havent been able to find a app affordable for us to read the books that we all love, thanks to epic I can read the books we live without buying them will be looking forward to reading more books and more books later, this is the best app I have found in a long time And I have fallen in love with it s thank again for making such a wonderful app that has me reading and has my computer and tv off that is a true blessing. I will keep this app, because any app that keeps you reading is really good for the brain and your mind and I believe every parent and teacher should use this app to get their students to read, reading will take you will take you all over the world. All over the universe. All the Galaxy. Read on. Make this app awesome, because I love it and think it is already awesome, so thank you again.
Lots of good quality books, very affordable, easy to use and navigate! Highly recommend!
This has been a great investment for our family. All 3 of my kids (ages 3, 6, and 11) really love this app. The selection is very good and its the most kid-friendly ebook source I have found.

Some bad moments

The description stated "free for educators" and 24 hours later I get an email saying I will be charged $4.99 a month.
I was super excited to find this app but I found out you had to pay to get the books and I was sooooo disappointed with this app. If you dont want to pay for the books, dont even bother
I do not like epic it changes your avatar and moves you down levels
The is the best reading app out there, but with all their success, why cant they make decent search and browse functions so were not always looking at the same books? Web site claims that some books are read by famous voices, but there is no way to search for them. Some books/authors (how many?) are not included in the search engine. Diana Wynne Jones for example. Also, audio books must have a table of contents for easier navigation.
The commercials say its free but you have to $5 every month!!
When I saw this I was like I love this AND then when I figured out that you had to pay I was like seriously ! Why should you pay I deleted it right away !
