    The app was working fine until a week or two ago. Now my kids can't see books assigned to them, the Read to Me and Videos tab don't work, and Search isn't finding books we previously read. Epic still works fine on Windows, but my kids use Android tablets. Seems like others are experiencing the same issues. Please fix.

    Epic is really good for every body but I think it would be much better if you could put books for adults so they can enjoy reading too and just so you know I just gave this idea if you guys want this app to be much popular and more fun for everyone. Also some thing that will also help your app is that it does not have to be with money because why not we use it for free because maybe some people don’t have the money and because every body wants to talk about it they really want to try this app and they download it but then they see oh no 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♀️ this app needs money every month. Thanks for understanding. Just so you know this is just a feed back and please mail me I want to know if you guys liked my feed back. Bye!!!!!!👏👏👏 Thank you very much for this app. Also, thank you for your support. From: a fan of your app👍. P.S: just so you know all of this is just a feed back but the following is a review, I hope you like it ❤️❤️. I love this app and I think that it is such a clever and fun app to use every body at my school 🏫 always talks about Epic because it’s such a good app.

    I was introduced to this app through my son's Kindergarten teacher. He was beginning to lose interest in reading, but Epic! changed everything. He now loves to sit for hours listening to the "read to me" selections and having me read so many more books.The library is extensive and grows every day. What a wonderful addition to our time spent reading physical books.

    I bought this subscription for the large read-to-me collection. But for some reason they do not show up on a new Samsung tablet even though their site claims that the app is compatible with droid. Also many books that show up on my laptop cannot be found when using the tablet. I have contacted Customer Support and am waiting to hear back. Hoping they fix this and I will edit my rating, otherwise I will be asking for a refund..... **Update**1/22/21** I have changed my review to reflect the quick fix. After two weeks of it being down. Customer service replied to my service request and has fixed the bug! It works wonderfully on our tablet and my preschoolers are enjoying the read aloud books immensely! Thank you for your fast fix!

    My son and daughter use a pic on my phone almost every day it's interest spark of wanting to read for them that makes me very happy as a parent, but I have to pay money so that my kids can read, it's not that big of a deal to me I love them reading because I used to never read so I'll pay money about seven dollars a month, but if do you want to save some money every year that's totally up to you I'm not judging anyone here just saying that if you want to save money this might not be the right up for you totally think you should get it but still you have to pay some money and if you don't download books off-line you won't be able to read them when you're off-line that's the sad part I could never remember to put it off line so when we're on the road they never actually get to read any books then again that might just be my kids problems trying to teach them to remember stuff they're only four and five but being a mom of four it's not easy I also have a 10-year-old and an 11-year-old that never want to read they use epic on their phones and they love it so much So they still pay the money themselves but hope you guys get this app it's very nice

    I’m in the first few days of subscription, and wondering if I’m missing a better way to search? It’s horrible! Literally the poorest search function I’ve yet to experience. Can’t type more than one word without getting hundreds of irrelevant results. Clicking on Boxcar Children in “popular series” offers only three books, although 60+ are available in epic! The series I’ve looked at are completely unsorted, making it very difficult for children to use those independently if they have a continuous story from beginning to end. The thumbnail view, even on large screen tablet, can’t be zoomed, so subtitles and numbers within series are not readable. I attempted to create collections and assign to my homeschooling student, following the directions on epic’s site, but “My Library” is missing entirely, so can’t get past first step. I’m using the app on iPad Pro. One good thing is children can comfortably browse featured items, although I’d love to adjust what’s there since my child is mostly reading Halloween titles (in mid November). The library definitely has liberal leaning options (ex. several books about Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Big Bang ‘science’) but none to be found leaning conservatively after much searching. I’m disappointed that so few Caldecott books are included. Also lacking unabridged classics. There is no shortage of Twaddle. Not sure this is anything I expected or want to pay for.

    I had to wait a month or two for getting back on my payment and now that I'm back on, it keeps taking me in circles when I log in. Literally can't get my access any which way back in, as it keeps kicking me back to the 7 day trial or yearly payment screen, no matter which way I login. Can't go back to 5 star until this is fixed. All I wanna do is read my kids books at bedtime again!

    Worked well until we had to pause. We paused our subscription due to money. Re started it on the last day of dec. Still shows on all devices paused. Contacted Google play, the issue was with Epic app. I've tried to contact 4 times this month to epic and never get a response!(1/18 they merged all my tickets but still no human response/contact) Kiddo misses it and paid for a month without being able to use. Disappointed. Filing dispute with Google play now due to developer failing to do...anything

    Please fix it. It takes a long time just to log in. And it even shows a free trail and if I try to press on the back arrow mark it just doesn't work and if I press sign in, it asks our email and etc. And I had made an account but just couldn't change the profile picture. Please just let us use the app instead of taking a while signing in. PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!!!! 😭😠😤☹️

    I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing issues. I wonder why they don't roll back the update since that is probably what messed up the app. I too just purchased a whole, expensive, year of this app due nothing to work. Can't go to read to me books or videos now. Random books are being suggested for my kids that I have either hidden in the past or just aren't age appropriate. I also wish there was a way to hide large amounts of books, like all Christmas, Halloween, magic, etc. But there isn't.

    I have to be honest and say that purchasing this app for a whole year was not my intention. And to my surprise, it has been the best accidental purchase. This app has helped my 1st grader to enjoy reading. When he is on Epic he is having fun and learning in a way that doesn’t make reading a chore. My 4 yr old daughter is obsessed with this app. It’s given me the extra support I’ve needed in helping both my children read. It’s extremely user friendly and the amount of books and videos available continues to surprise me. This app is a must have for all parents. It’s an amazing gift to give young children. I know my kids love it. In my house, Epic has become a constant resource for entertainment and education. It truly is an extension of our home library. It’s my virtual bookshelf and our nightly bedtime story. I don’t know what I would do with out. I know for a fact that my life n the lives of my children would be less wondrous n beautifully illustrated without Epic. Thank you to everyone at Epic. Because of your app my kids are reading more. And during this difficult time in the world, you have helped make my life a little easier n more quiet.

  • I love this app!!! But there are some miner bugs May 18, 2020

    By hvdbxbuibdxuihwx
    Like I said I LOVE this app, when your at home and you don’t have a book you can read or you’ve read all of them, just download this app!!! It’s has all the books in the world! Also if you want to read in a different reading app I recommend NOOK its free, but some of the books aren’t :/. But anyway this app is amazing and teachers love it to! But there are some bugs that can be fixed, but other then that this is my top 10 recommended apps, if you want to hear about them they are going to be listed below > ROBLOX: this is my most favorite game to play and their are endless possibilities! You can friend your friends and chat with them which is convenient since of COVID-19 and their are TONES of games and obbys that are fun and eventful! But I would only give this app 3 stars, because like any other app there are hackers and scammers, and somtimes even viruses that are lerking in this app :( AND its very scary, so you have to be carful who your friends with. There are also mean people in this game too :( so not the most “fun” game if your hacked, but it’s pretty fun if you just for get about it!!! Well that’s all I’m going to say for now, this is WAY to long and I don’t think anyone will read it :/ but I’ll stop talking 😅

    Epic is a good app but I can’t say the one thing I don’t like is that some of the real long does the auto parts you can’t see the words and I don’t really like that. I also like it because I can’t listening to a book while I’m doing something else and I’m still kind a like yet so it’s nice I really like it and I don’t think there’s really anything else like it besides like Kindle and stuff but that’s for like kids and is a nice thing you can make two accounts and you get to pick what you like for each of help or it’s over two accounts and you can pick what do you like whatever you want and I really like that. And I think that epic earth not the best App but it’s good I would like to see improved and I’d like to do more interviews on it so yeah I’m actually reading a book right now and it’s called farm life oh yeah here’s another thing I don’t like it about it is it it is it doesn’t have all of the books I like like dog Mia Sammy it to you have a great selection of yesterday have a great collection of who is the new wires so I’d really like to see dog man and some more some more nonfiction book it’s more of a biography wrapping who is it who was biographies so yeah I would really like to do another review so I really like either but I think it can improve so yeah.

    Updated review- We were very happy with the app at first, but it has a lot of bugs. Customer service is friendly,and tried to help, but the problems still persist. The app uses your 2 hours of after school time even though it says you have switched over to school time and then doesn't work for the week. Now it's not recording what books we have already read. Great concept, but needs a bit of work.

    App worked great until we had to use it for school. We aren't receiving assignments given by the teacher nor can we find the books she assigned. All of which are available when using the desktop version via my laptop. It's extremely frustrating since these assignments are due for my son's schoolwork and I must use the laptop for work.

    Update on my review We loved this app and my LO enjoyed both read to me and comic. We have bought the subscription but since few day ago read to me and video option doesn't turn on and there is no results if you search. I've sent a message to support but still waiting for reply (understandable - pandemic). For now I have paused my subscription. My son is very disappointed that the app doesn't work.

    Every time I go on epic it has to be early. Why,You might ask? Because every time after 3:30 or 4:00 (exactly on the dot) it kicks you out! If you don’t want that you can go to free epic. The only problem with that is that you only get picture books. Also, when you go onto epic free you only get two hours. Then it says your time will be renewed. That never happens! If you want epic unlimited you have to pay seventeen dollars for three months. Also all of the good books you could get for free at the library or a book sale for cheap. The only good part about epic is that it has books for all ages. It has audiobooks, chapter books and picture books. It also has places to put the books you like. If you klick on the little heart you get your favorite books in one part. That is the only good parts about epic. It may seem that epic is all good but honestly it not. I went onto epic and it won’t let me onto my school account. Now I can’t read any of the books my teacher sends me. Epic was so much better last year. I set my expectations high and I was not pleased. I honestly don’t know what the programmer thought when they changed epic. I am very disappointed ☹️.

I’m disappointed that so few Caldecott books are included. Also lacking unabridged classics. There is no shortage of Twaddle. Not sure this is anything I expected or want to pay for.

  • I was about to use it... Sep 13, 2019

    By lovelylittlelife101
    I was about to start using it on my phone until I saw that subscription... I use it in my school all the time and didn’t like it because the level was way too low and so I was stuck with baby books which is one of my pet peeves. I just ended up scrolling for books for older ages, but they never had any. I just wish that you could adjust your reading level by yourself because my reading level is eighth grade but I’m reading about first. I ended up looking up the app on my phone just to see how it was to be able to choose your level, and I realized that my library teacher thought it would be an amazing idea to make all of the levels for babies so when fifth grade came along, all we had to do was look at random videos of slime and stuff. I was going to ask to use RAZ-kids, but she said ‘strictly epic’ so now I'm doomed. I know that you can use the search bar to change the level, but that never REALLY works. It just changes you to the highest level for your grade, which is about second or third in the app. Also, you have to pay for it and lots of people cant cancel the subscription. I know I'm going to get put in critical, but I honestly don’t think it matters right now. I should’ve known...
