  • Could be better Apr 20, 2021

    By Could be bette
    I live outside Indonesia, so was very happy to find this apps where I could buy and read books in Indonesian. But for the last few months, I have not been able to purchase the ebooks and no solution seems to be forthcoming. I’m guessing that it is because I don’t an Indonesian bank account, or Indonesian credit cards or mobile number. It needs to find a solution for clients not living in Indonesia.

    Happy to have found this apps that enables me to get Indonesian e-books however it needs improvement. I shouldn’t have to ‘open ‘ the book again everytime I ppen the Apps, it should just take me to where I left off. Also would be nice to have options for font sizes.

  • Useful but instable on older iDevice Oct 13, 2013

    By Benedictus Rio
    Like this app 'coz it let me download and read magz. It even cheaper than the price in mortar & brick store. But sometimes it crashes and quit unexpectedly on my old iPod 4th gen. Well I think it's time to upgrade.
  • Review for scoop! Mar 22, 2012

    By Rococo13
    This is an app with very interesting magazines. Very avant garde. I would love to see more choices and more free mags. However with the ones I have I have learned a lot. It would be nice to have some kind of translation help to even read more and learn more of the countries involved. Great work! Keep it up! Thank you for teaching the world of your beautiful countries. Many thanks, Corinne.
  • Amazingly generous application Nov 9, 2011

    By Na7noo7
    So organized, categorized easy to use application. But, search engine has to be enhanced for Multi search keyword entry and after buying a magazine and going back to store it doesn't go where you left it but It goes where you started your search.
  • Not for English-only readers Sep 5, 2011

    By DammiTammi
    Every mag I liked was in a different language. Unfortunately, I'm essentially monolingual. The only complaint is, why are the mag covers & most descriptions IN ENGLISH That seems to be a bit misleading. At least the descriptions should read "[language] edition." Nothing wrong with app that I know of, other than that

    This is a very useful and convenient apps to use. You can read magazine everywhere and everytime. It has many titles. No doubt, download it now.
  • Not user friendly Apr 6, 2019

    First of all thank you gramdeis for making this feature since some people dont live in indonesia and hard to find indonesian books, but too bad the app is not very user-friendly

    Not good
  • Poor designed ebok format Mar 13, 2017

    By Ronn0117
    Took the name of Gramedia, this ebook application is fully terrible experienced to reading ebook that i ever had. Annoying force closed after browsing & few scrolling book cover display. Data server likely need to upgraded, very slow respond to download. Book format is still using pdf that very old for reading ebook, newer format like epub and mobi known most used all of ebook applications. User interface design like webpage a hundred years ago, nothing whistlist, brightness setting, etc.
  • Poor selection mostly not in English! What a waste! Sep 5, 2011

    By MichaelG54321
    Don't bother downloading. While the software looks ok, there is almost no selection to chose from, none of the popular magazines in any category. Mostly obscure stuff you never heard of and very little in English. To make things worse, there us no language setting to only display English publications.
  • Its good apps before but now is horrible. Cant download anythings Oct 14, 2016

    By Rapri
    The idea and selections are good, but that was few months ago. Now it cant download nor see the magazine that was previously downloaded and they still charge the monthly fee for the premium service. Been emailing tech support for the past few weeks, got no reply.
  • Misleading Sep 20, 2011

    By Morte Amoureuse
    The app itself may not be bad but its definitely misleading. The description implies the magazines are in English, yet I could hardly find any. It seems many are in Taiwanese. I was deeply disappointed by this. Not to mention that the search tool and the filter should offer more options to make it easier to look for magazines.
  • This Ap is Crap Jan 4, 2014

    By Davemet
    I find this app very unuser friendly. The search function is highly unreliable, I paid to upload a magazine recently, it uploaded but I cannot access the magazine anywhere! Waste of money and no instructions or help support. Clearly a money making tool only with no regard for the customer

  • Can't stop notifications! Dec 10, 2011

    By IneedAnExit
    I don't want notifications, and there is no way to turn them off! Also there are very few English language publications. Otherwise the app has good potential.

  • Very little English Sep 8, 2011

    By MiMi
    It's such a well designed app, but hardly any of the magazines are in English. The covers are though, so this is very misleading. That being said, if I could read Indonesian, this would be a 5-star app... 
