  • Great app, more real reading, wish I could keep kids from accessing certain books

    Revised down to 3 stars since the app automatically deletes every offline book each time we update it. That’s super annoying for us as we frequently use it on the road when we don’t have internet access. Back to 4 stars if they fix this. —— I would give Epic 5 stars except that there are some books that I feel are too mature for my preschool-aged son, but I haven't found a way to remove them from being recommended to him. These include books about aliens and ghosts, which have given him the creeps but his curiosity always gets the better of him. I'm usually with him when he's reading and so I can "curate" what he reads to a certain extent, but I wish he didn't even see the covers of those books because he'll keep wanting to go back to them. I recommend hey the developers create an option to put certain books onto a blacklist for your kids, I'd be very happy to just do it manually if that feature existed. Otherwise, a great product! ---- [Earlier version of the review] I love this for my kids because the books are great and don't have any frills and gimmicks. I personally dislike the whole interactive e-book thing because I believe it sends the message that reading by itself isn't good enough, and that discourages the use of imagination. Epic is great because it's just books, and while there is some interaction in terms of the rewards, it's mostly just what you'd get at the library, just on your iPad. The interface is decent enough, the best thing is much of it is gestures based, so young kids can do it. One weakness is that while you can download books for offline viewing, which is perfect for restaurants or in the car or on the plane, you can only see (and access) 25 offline books.

    I hate this it is stupid how you have to pay 8$ a month just to read books you can actually read in real life I was going to get it for my little sister so then she can read and now more stuff but you have to pay every single month for it so I hate it I would start using it as long as it took off the paying thing for it so I don’t care for it

    This is the best online reading site for kids.I gave this a five star rating because it has very appropriate and a good selection of books. If you choose to get this app I would 10/10 recommend for you or your kid I enjoyed this app very much if your kid doesn’t like reading get them this app because it will make them change their minds about reading.

    Hey so I’m in love with reading so reading on the go is way easier than to bring a book! You might lose your page but this never does!
  • Epic is great but.........

    By Invisibal pwr
    I LOVE epic! It is a very fun app with lots of books for all ages, but it has some problems..... like when I’m in the car and I want to read a book it always has no WiFi! It drives me crazy! And I think that the avatars and the wall decorations on epic should be easier to earn because some say crazy things like “finish 100 books to earn this!” Or “ wake up at 8:00am to get this!!” So what I am trying to say is please fix those things but otherwise epic is a great app for your child and you learn SO many things for it!!! Get epic!!!

    It’s a great app for kids to read and watch videos. It might cost but you can use your schools for kids to read and at my SCHOOL we read every day. Reading is really good for kids to learn a lot of stuff.

    I really do like this app, but why make it cost money, people should be able to let there children read books on this amazing app for free!!! I get you guys have some special things on this app but, you should only make some things cost money, but not a lot of money. But yes if you don’t care about spending some money, then I recommend this game.🙃🤔

    When it comes to sitting in bed at night to sitting outside on a hot day reading to my brother I use epic when my brother is cranky or maybe my mom and dad need me to watch him I pull up epic on my iPad and read to him he really likes Elmer the Elephant and he really enjoys listening to barnyard boogie! I also enjoy reading the weird but triple books and the goosebumps books in bed or whenever I relax I also enjoyed reading one of my favorites always October I love the mystery in the monsters I listen to it all the time I actually started reading listening to it in second grade and then I lost second grade I didn’t have the app so I forgot all about it and then one day I thought of a good reading book or maybe even to listen to and then I thought of this one book that I was reading in second grade I tried so hard to think about it and then I finally realized what it was it was, always October! I got the app and started listening!
  • WHY

    By SKracunas
    I like ready on Epic except I feel like they could’ve have mor books for older readers like adding books along the lines of Refugee,A Night Divided,Ann Franks Diary and the miscalculations of lighting girl. So books along the titles of these Books would be good so I can also read more advanced books.
  • I love to read
