go read Like the app, but it could use some work. Also, when I look for newspapers and magazines go read says that they are downloadible, but when I attempt to download either a newspaper or magazine, I receive a message that says, "download failed" Also, Was go read ever free? If so, could you possibly make it free again? I seem to have some trouble getting through the rest of the steps to set up an account.

Almost there Good app, just not big enough. On my Sony Tablet S I was able to stretch to fill screen, but now that I cannot the font is way too small. 140 pt would be optimal.

Awesome Ap I think that this is a really good ap for me. It uses the Google talk back application as I'm blind.
