    Leaks my device ID to third party when it could just generate an app ID unique to me. Also, tracks my location. Why do book summaries need to track my location?! If it's not worth it to getAbstract to protect my privacy, what else is it not worth it for getAbstract to do? Protect the security of my device and data? Deliver well considered software? Benefits are not worth the risks.

    I wish the app justified the quality of the content. Search is very basic. Graphics very poor. One can notice absense of audio summary only after downloading summary. There should be option to read review before download No tagging of bestsellers and such other parameters. Just basic tagging of subject

    The content is great but the app is not. Slow and buggy.

    Really like the new update. App works faster now and provides many features on small screen. Great to read abstracts "on the go"!
