Sora, by OverDrive Education Comments & Reviews 2022

- Fine App, but needs work

Sora is an excellent app for students to read books they pick and that their teachers assign. But Sora’s interface can be glitchy. On the achievements page for students where they can see reading achievements they earned you cannot scroll. If I open the app after it’s restarted and immediately go to the achievements page I can scroll down and up but if I open it again after going to a different page or I open the app before it’s restarted then it is frozen with scrolling no scroll up no scroll down. And it’s extremely annoying that you need to restart the app to scroll in your achievements. Also I started reading at 11AM and finished at 11:30AM but it gave me the achievement “Early Bird” for reading before 7AM?! I couldn’t find any setting to change the time so it now has no idea of the time. Please fix these glitches.

- The concept is nice but...

I only recently got this app and I’m hoping to be proven wrong but right off the bat I see some issues. For one, even though they have access to your clever account, which I believe has your grade and lexile score, I was recommended books for 3rd graders despite being in 7th grade. And even the books that were “on level” had lexile less than a thousand and-age counts not reaching 200. My lexile score for the record was 1413. This is the thing I have the most trouble with on kids websites. They seem to assume all of us are below average and group 5th graders in with kindergarteners in reading level. The next thing is the “fantasy” section. I have read many a book in this genre written in the last decade. So why are all the books on the websites not? I know old books can be good, but by now the writing pales in comparison to modern books that actually engage the reader. I can name hundreds of modern fantasy books yet they don’t have a single decent one. I’m not sure how this works, and if it’s a problem with the rights and copyright and stuff that’s fine, but please make your system see what grade and lexile score your on. No dignified 7th grader is going to be caught dead reading “Spongebob: Surfs Up!”

- Perfect! But could have a few better features

I’ll start out by saying I love this app. As a huge reader I found it really useful to have my entire school library on my phone. One thing is if I was waiting for a hold, I wouldn’t find out my hold was ready until I opened the app to read something else. I think it would be really useful to have notifications that would send out to alert you when a hold was ready or when it was almost time to take a book back. Other than that, it’s a perfect app for students like me who love reading on their phones. I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn’t like reading as much because their are audiobooks as well as ebooks. Anyway please look into the notifications thing and thank you for your time!

- Pros and Cons

Pros: Feels authentic Books read from electronics No need to go to the library Audio books Cons: Hold placements: why do you need hold placements on an electronic book app? The book isn’t exactly an object you picked up from the library. It feels like this app could have accomplished so much more is this wasn’t a feature. Electronic books should not have a checkout line. Interface: the interface is glitchy at worst, an annoyance at best. Sampling: when I sample a book I have to return to where I found the book instead of just being able to borrow it right then and there In all, I feel like this app should be an alternative if someone has already borrowed the book you were after in the library, it shouldn’t function as if it were a library itself, at least not with the extreme downsides of the library

- Great App!

This app is really great and I’ve been using it for a while now. However, I have been experiencing a bit of trouble recently. Everything was fine, and I had just gone into the app, when I realized that all the books I had borrowed were gone. I figured it might just be a glitch, so I went in and out again, but it still wasn’t working. So I tried to type the name of a book I wanted to read, and it started to load for a while, but then it said “could not load this list. Please try another”. I’ve tried all kinds of different books, and nothing works. I even deleted and reinstalled the app, but nothing is working. I was wondering if there was a way to fix this, or if I should just wait for a while. Please reply back soon if you can fix it. Thank you!

- Fun app, but needs a little work.

Sora is a nice app but however, it has issues. My child was obsessed with reading on Sora when her school introduced it to her, so she read a lot everyday. However, when she opened Sora a few days later, when she wanted to borrow a book, it said, ‘You checked out and returned too many titles in a short time please try again later.’ I would get that if she did NOT return the titles, but that makes no sense because they were basically stopping my daughter from reading! And another thing Sora could be working on, my daughter can only check out one book at a time and hold one book at a time, why aren’t they letting her check out and hold more? So Sora’s a good app when you actually can read on there, otherwise, it could use some work.

- Great app! Just one pretty major thing...

I really like sora! So much, in fact, I have it both on my computer at school, and my phone at home. When I went to school today I found I couldn’t check out the audiobook I wanted, so I tried to log out the in again, but it still didn’t work. Then I tried to check out a regular ebook. And this worked, but I didn’t want the ebook, I wanted an audiobook because ebooks can make my eyes hurt. I came home, hoping to check out a book here, then read it at school. I tried and it wouldn’t even let me download a regular ebook. At this point I’m really annoyed so I log out then in again, it STILL doesn’t work. I DELETE THE APP, RE- DOWNLOAD IT, LOG IN, SHUT DOWN MY PHONE, COMPLETELY REBOOT, AND IT STILL DOESNT WORK. I rely on sora for reading and this has me REALLY mad. Thank you, A loyal/concerned user

- Use it for school but..........

Okay Sora is good. I like it. It’s not their fault that they got four stars. It’s that recently I stumbled across a app called Libby and it was so good, even better than Sora. Plus, I only got Sora cause my school used it, but I realized that I can use my school library on Libby too. I am not a Libby advertiser, just a real customer, and plan on keeping Sora, but overdrive and Libby can add two libraries and allow me to navigate between my school and public libraries. This makes me use Sora less and less but overall the app is good and deserves 4 stars but if you want an exceptional five star app just get Libby and if you want two libraries get overdrive. Sora is good, maybe even great, but not as good as Libby or overdrive. I encourage you get those apps instead.

- Good, but a few things

I really like using sora when I feel bored or am in need of a book, and for that it works fine. But it only allows you to borrow three books at a time, which is slightly annoying to me. For example, you have to give up a book you are halfway through reading because you would like this other book. Or, you would like to check out a whole series but you can only have 3 of the books at a time. Also, most of the books are more for smaller children. I understand that this is an app created for kids, but if you could add a few more books for people past 5th grade, that would be great. :)

- I love this app! One issue though.

Hello reader, I love this app, if you are looking for an app with a large selection of e-books and audio books then this is the place for you! 📚 I was so excited when my English teacher recommended this app to me! I love how you can also get fun little achievements for reading different genres, renewing a book, returning a book early, etc. The selection is awesome 👏 👏 👏! My only issue with this app is the checkout limit, three books total (both your e-books and audio books combined not three each). Could the developers possibly bring it up to four, or maybe five? Thanks so much for reading! Bye!

- So great!!!

I absolutely love Sora! I have used it for a while now and have had no problems. I love to download audiobooks to listen to and to read ebooks. There is such variety of genre and level. I like how you can do an advanced search and narrow it down to almost exactly what you want. Although Sora doesn’t always have what I’m looking for, it’s still a great app! I do have a request though. I know you can earn badges in all, but I think you should be able to set reading goals! Teachers should set goals for theirs students and students should be able to set goals for themselves too. Thank you so so much! - A very happy customer

- I love this!

I love how there is a timer and it stops after 30 minutes! One thing on the downside, it needs to rate books like tv shows. I got the book 13 reasons why not realizing it was a little mature. I start reading it and it just didn't seem like it should have been for me. And I didn't know at all! If there could be something to help this please let me know :) but besides that I love the app! It's useful right now since my school is not currently going. I also love how it shows you how many books and how many minutes you have listened to or read. Thank you for reading my ted talk. Get the dang app.

- Great for Early&Advanced Readers

This app is really amazing, I save a lot of money by getting all my reading done online! I read about 2 books a month so 24 books a year let’s say each book is $10 then I save $240 each year. That’s not even including the extra space I don’t need to clear for books. I also like how you can read on the go, if I’m bored I can just pop out my phone and read. I also like how I have a wide variety of books to choose from. All in all this app is a great place to just read and improve your mood.

- Sora is amazing!

Sora is an amazing app! You can check out books online. It can be really handy for students or someone who needs a book for their SA or assignment! However there is one thing that can be annoying, whenever I want to check out a book sometimes somebody has already checked it out so I’m not able to borrow it or read it until the person who checked it out returns it or it gets returned because it got to the end of their due date. Other than that Sora is an amazing app and I definitely recommend!!!

- Literally amazing, but....

Okay, so to be honest, I think Sora is a great way to read your books online. There are cool features available which are quick and easy to use, and they are very descriptive when it comes to books. Sora also represents your local library very well--but an online version. A few things that they could work on improving is creating a larger collection of books. I also am experiencing a bug that makes it so I can't open any book, but it might just be a wifi problem. Anyway, this app has its pros and cons, but I still would recommend it for anyone willing to read ebooks!

- Very Useful but been waiting on a hold

I love Sora and use it a lot. It’s great for school and also relaxing. You can choose any books you want it’s awesome when you can bookmark and highlight words and phrases in the book and come back to it later. However, the holds are not good. I placed a hold for a book on January 3rd, 2021. I was the first person in line after the person who had the book right now. It’s now May 6th and I am still waiting for the book! There are 5 other people in line behind me but I think the person who was reading it is not on Sora anymore. But it won’t release the book to me. Can that be changed?

- Will not alert you that your loan is ready

This app is similar to Libby, but Libby is far superior. The main problem is that when you put a book on hold and it becomes available, the app does not let you know. The only way to discover that your hold is ready to borrow, is to open it each day to check. If you forget to open and check on the day the book becomes available, you lose your hold and have to go to the back of the line again. If you’re waiting several weeks for your hole to become available, sometimes you forget to open the app on a given day to check. Libby will notify you by email and phone notifications when your hold is available to check out. Until this app is updated with this feature, it only earns one star.

- Love it tho

I love this app I only have one problem when ever I find a book I might like I find out u have the third and not the first or second or the last one which makes it really hard for me to find a book I might like I do think that greatly needs to be fixed I also have an example I am reading the Harry Potter books well u don’t have the last one or wings of fire u have like the first six but that’s it I think it would great if u could go through and download all the books in series u don’t have it would make the app 20 times better

- Great for audiobooks, but...

I am a student who uses this app to listen to audiobooks during this pandemic, but with that I have a question: Why do you need to borrow and renew audiobooks? And here’s a better one: Why can I not renew an AUDIOBOOK when someone has a hold on it? It’s not like it’s an actual book that there is only one of, in fact, why is it even like this at all? Isn’t the whole point of a virtual library to keep books easily accessible? Maybe there is something that I don’t understand, but this system is REALLY stupid. (I know I complained a lot, but it’s still good, and is still a really easy way to access good reads or listens)

- Great App

I used to use the online version of this app before deciding to try the actual app and boy I’m I glad I sucked it up and downloaded this. I love that I can read without WiFi and that I don’t have up sign in every time I want to read. Ever since stuff has been closing I’ve been having to buy books online but with Sora I am able to get them for free and read anytime. It’s really nice and convenient little library in your pocket. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and everyone. Thank you for your time. I hope you enjoyed my fricken Ted talk.

- What happened?

Now that app works again, it’s a fine app but I prefer overdrive. I wish you could sort titles by unread/read so I don’t have to scroll around looking. Sora looks prettier but I prefer function over cutesy. Overdrive just seems to be easier to maneuver around in & designed for phone savvy people. Sora looks like it’s for Elementary aged kids. Old Review from Dec 2020: Sora worked fine this summer but about a week ago my app won’t open, it’s stuck on main screen. I didn’t want to delete for fear of losing all the books or any saved info. Anyone else experiencing this issue? HELP Overdrive/Sora, you’re my only hope.

- Doesn’t hold your place in audio

I like that this is free, but the app needs work. Every time I reopen my audiobook it shoots me back to like 5 chapters before and I have to re-find my place. This can be extremely annoying because when you’re listening you’re not necessarily paying attention to what chapter you’re on. To those that are complaining about wait lines for ebooks and audiobooks, though, THIS IS HOW THE LIBRARY WORKS and is not an issue with the app. Libraries buy e-copies of the book but are not allowed to loan out infinite copies. Otherwise the publishers/authors wouldn’t make any money.

- Terrible app

This app is the worst app I have ever used. One of the experiences I had with this app is that one time I opened the book and sora said that there was only 300 pages. When I continued to read the book the total number of pages increased. When I finished reading the book it turns out that there were more than 600 pages. This app is so misleading. I had to read the book off of Sora for my book report so it took forever to read the whole thing, which I at first thought was only 300 pages. My friend also had a problem with Sora as well. She waited 3 weeks to receive her book because Sora said the book was on hold. The book never came so she had to get it from the library instead. So ridiculous.

- Ugh!

I love Overdrive abs have used it for many, many years with no problems but was forced to download and use this with the Audiosync program I use with my students. The app almost never works. It either shows the initial icon and then turns black, or gets stuck on the initial icon screen. I’ve reinstalled, restarted the devices, tried WiFi and cellular, even multiple devices - nothing works. I finally found a contact email and they said it’s not the app. Well... everything else works perfectly fine and this doesn’t. I hate when companies force you to use their proprietary software.

- One problem...

Sora is a great app and I use it a lot. But there is one problem. I tried to log in on one of my devices and accidentally put in the wrong passcode and of course it said try again. But then when I tried again I clicked the sign in button a pop up showed up and said that it couldn’t find my account. I restarted the app and it still didn’t work. Then, I deleted the app and got it again and it still won’t work. I’ve done this several times and it’s still not working. I am very upset amped annoyed and really want to use this app.

- Great but the hold wait is too long

This is a pretty great app. But the hold wait is way too long. I tried getting some books to read but the wait is 6 months long. I much rather just go out and buy the book than wait THAT long. And I looked at multiple books and all of them had super long holding time. Possibly the person holding it forgot about the app or the book and has it in their inbox but this is absolutely ridiculous. 6 months?! No thank you. I rather go to my local library to go and borrow the book there.

- Great app!

I love sora! It’s great to settle down with a nice big selection of books right on my phone. I love how large the selection is and how many different genres of books there are. One thing though, when you have a book on hold, if it says you have to wait 6 weeks to get it, it stays saying 6 weeks even if you only have 1 week of remaining time. This is inconvenient because sometimes I forget how many weeks it’s been since I’ve put the book on hold. Other than that, I love the app and it’s awesome! 👏


Major problems with this app 1. Copies disappear and you aren't able to check them out at all. I had a hold on a certain book for a year, and I never got to read it. 2. There isn't a good book selection. One thing that bugs me about this app is that it doesn't have a lot of new and popular books to choose from. Unless you like reading boring classics from a million years ago, there aren't a lot of newer or interesting books. I mean sure there is a few popular series and novels but they're always checked out constantly. To improve this app, I would suggest fixing the problems with the check outs, and improving the book selection.

- AMAZING!!!❤️ but...

Amazing app for kids! Has a ton of books for anyone’s level! No ads, no glitches seen so far. I recommend this app for any student! But, there is one issue. I have had quite a few books now that say they have an unknown wait. I have had books that say the wait is about 6 months, and I have waited more that half a year now and they still aren’t available. One tip to fix that, but overall it’s a really great app! ❤️ 📚 ❤️ 📖❤️

- Pretty good app

This app is really good for finding books you can’t find in your school library I will be using this app to find books that I couldn’t find in my school library. This app is pretty great there really isn’t that Many issue except from when you have to download the book it takes a really long time. It took me about 10 minutes to download a book. But other than that everything is great the app is fast and easy to use.

- VERY GLITCHY AND FREEZES A LOT but good app and has MANY good books!

Great app but its needs work. It freezes a lot and glitches too. I was trying to read a book and then it freezes randomly. I don't know but I just wish it were less glitchy. I used to use Epic! but I think this is a better app except for how glitchy it is. Thanks for the app though! Also, I don’t understand why people keep saying it’s inappropriate. You are able to set the preferences to a certain age and grade and lexile score so you shouldn’t see cusses everywhere. 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

- Great! But only used for school....

This app is great! I can read my favorite comic series on this for free! But, I’m a little disappointed this is only for school. Like maybe you can add an option that makes it so you can use sora for personal use. I know that the point of Sora is to borrow books from school libraries, but you should really add an option for personal use somehow, like maybe make public libraries not for school use.

- Sora

So, I borrowed a book on Sora that I already finished, but wanted to read again. When I scrolled back to the 1st page, it completely froze and I had to restart the app. I did this several times, but it still was not cooperating. Now, whenever I try to go into Sora, the screen is black and doesn’t show me anything. And it’s all because I wanted to reread a book. If I have to go through that every single time, then I’m sure I won’t get on Sora again.

- Want to read more books

Sora is great and all but for some reason it says that I’ve reached my hold limit even if I have one book on hold. I think that should be fixed because there are some books I want to read and I can’t place them on hold. Also it would be nice if you could add more badges. Edit: Also I have to wait a million years to get one book. (Okay maybe not a million but I have to wait like SIX MONTHS) please read this and I hope you can fix mine and other peoples requests. From A reader

- Does not accurately save where I left off

This app has such potential but there’s one huge issue… whenever I re-open an audiobook after not listening for a few hours, I find that the app didn’t save where I left off! It always starts me back about 20 minutes from where I really left off so I have to manually fast forward and figure out where to pick back up which is SO frustrating! Definitely not a great user experience. After I finish the book I’m currently listening to in Sora, I’ll be going back to using Overdrive or maybe I’ll try out Libby.

- It’s a good reading app but....

Sora is an amazing app. I use it in school AND at home. I find ALL the books I love to read that I cant find on other apps. I love how it’s like a real library, s I feel like I’m at school instead of home, due to Covid. You think it should be 5 star about what I explained? Well you’re wrong. Why I gave it 4 stars is for 2 reasons. 1) It’s an online app, so when I want to read on the plane I cant. 2) There’s this glitch I hate. Whenever I want to read an interesting book about history, I click on the book, I click on read. All it shows is lines. Then I realize I’m not in a good spot. I go to a fully internet spot. Then it works. I realize it’s not the start of the book. When I get to the start, it shows those lines again. Then it instantly kicks me out of Sora. Please fix this.

- Good idea, Eh execution

I love Sora and i used to use overdrive before it got switched, so when I found out I could get the app I was excited. Now having it for about a week I’m realizing some issues. It constantly glitches out where the screen freezes and I can’t do anything. It also kicks me out of the app everyone once in a while. I like the app and the layout, I just would like to read without 15 minutes of shenanigans beforehand.

- Really Great App, One Problem

I am an 8th Grader and use this app all of the time to listen to books. Unfortunately, recently the app has been crashing after only listening to a book for about 5 minutes. I will note that this only seems to happen when my phone is off, but I am confused on whether or not it is my phone or the app. If Sora could look into this problem and resolve it, then this app would definitely get 5 stars. It is a great app though!

- Great app but one problem

I love this app but there is one problem I encountered. The app worked fine for the first book I read but on it but the second book I tried to read wouldn’t flip to the next page or anything. The app would freeze and kick me off of it whenever I would try to use different buttons when it was frozen and sometimes it would just crash normally while it was frozen. Is there any way to fix this?

- Really good

I really think Sora is a great app, and you can read a wide variety of books. However, right now I can’t check out anymore books because it says I returned and borrowed too many books in a short period of time and I have to try again later. Now, I’ve been waiting for 2 days and it still says the same thing. If that gets fixed, then this would be the best reading app ever. It is amazing in every other way, and has great aspects.

- Awesome but Super duper problem (worry crying over)

I am not a fan of reading, but sora got me interested. I use it for school and I love it, but, my old phone (hammy down) can’t support the app. I recommend this game and if it doesn’t work your missing out be I get it. My one suggestion is, maybe somehow make it possible for people with old phones able to get it to work.

- Great but...

Ur latest update is a straight up LIE. The loading screen STILL freezes! Same with the pages. THEY JUST FREEZE. UP. And also, when the pages freeze up, u have to start the app all over again, and if a book is downloading before u reset it then reset it, IT HAS TO START DOWNLOADING ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Like if it’s downloaded 51% but then u have to RESET THE FREAKING APP, it GOES BACK DOWN TO 0% DOWNLOADED!! You guys need to improve Sora, the freaking app that makes people go cray cray. Oh, and I have the best WiFi and the best device (centurylink is the WiFi name and iPad is the device I’m using)

- Love it! But…

I love this app! But there is a glitch of sorts in it. There’s a book that I really want to read but I have to put it on hold to get it. I’ve been waiting for 5 MONTHS and when I checked the page it said that no one was using the book and I was the first person in line. But I still couldn’t check the book out. PLEASE FIX THIS it makes it impossible to read a lot of books.

- Amazing, but

The app is absolutely amazing especially considering you can add multiple libraries. I know have my school and public library connected to this app. The huge problem is this the app will randomly freeze and there is no way to stop it. Like I will open a book it lets me use it for 20 seconds then stops. I have tried everything, butaybe it will be fixed in a patch update.

- It’s good, but.....

I like using Sora because I can check out books or place a hold on them whenever I like. However, there are several books that I placed a hold on, and never got! 😡For example, in August I placed a hold on the book “We’ll Always Have Summer.” I was third in line, and yet it said zero copies were checked out. And eight months later, I’m still third in line on the wait list without the book! This is very annoying and has happened with many of the holds I’ve placed. I am not happy with Sora and don’t recommend it to anyone! 😤😡

- Good, but freezes a lot

Ok, so I like to read manga books, so I went onto Libby to find some. Then I remember that I already read all the good manga there. Then I go on my school computer and realize that there is Sora. So I download it for my phone and get a book. Then I open the book. I flip one page and it freezes. So I exit the app, go back in, and start reading again. It freezes again. But it’s fine on a computer, so what’s wrong with the app? Sora, please fix this freezing problem.

- Pleased but more steps

Overall I’m pleased with this app. I still would personally choose Overdrive app, but as I use what my students would use, it isn’t too bad. One silly thing that is annoying is the number of steps to start the audiobook. Overdrive once I open the book, it would autoplay. Sora it takes 3-4 steps to get it to play. Minor but sometimes we need the quick start when multitasking. :)

- I love this app, but...

I love this app and all, however there is one problem I need you to fix. Well the problem is sometimes the app freezes, so then I have to close the tab and go back in the app. Please fix this, but whoever else is reading this you should get it. This problem just might be for me or because of the phone I have.

- Sora

I love reading on sora before I go to bed and I read a couple books that were fantastic and I had a idea it would be cool if you could write a public review about the book so you if most reviews are bad on the book then that kinda tells you not to check it out. so that’s my idea I hope you will take it into consideration thanks!

- I Love Sora!

I absolutely love the book app Sora! I have no problems at all and everything is working great for me! I love to read and i enjoy being able to pick any book to read or listen too. I like that you could also read the books on the go! It’s a perfect book app for school!

TransferWise 💸

- Good but some problems

Hi I love reading books but sometimes if I am reading a page with a lot of writing the app will not let me turn the page and gets me very frustrated and when you borrow a book it once took me half an hour to download or something! So if you can please fix the app and that would be greatly appreciated 🙂

- Really good but one issue.

I am A really great reader I read books every day but then when I was reading a book called cosmology by Britannica education publishing when I finished it and returned it and borrowed it again it was stuck on the last page and whenever I enter it it lags and takes me out of sora so please can you allow sora to not have this bug in whenever this happens can you at least fix the books data?

- Completely 👍

According to my experience within the app, it was definitely not the greatest for example it mostly just had technical issues. But besides that I really do like the idea of the kind of library sort of app and it has a wide selection of books to pick from so I think it’s great but just needs to fix up technical issues! 👍

- It’s good.... but

When I load in it takes for ever to load, but the worst thing is that it glitches so much. When ever I try to read a book in Sora, it glitches and takes a long time to start reading book your book. I wish there was an update where it doesn’t glitch.

- Ok...🤨😐

I think this app is ok. It’s not the best and always takes ages to load and won’t let me read unless connected to wifi and some books won’t download even when I am connected to wifi and say that I cannot download them unless I am connected to wifi. So yeah besides that. This is an ok app

- Great but one issue

I am a massive reader but lately when I have borrowed an ebook the chapter number comes up but there are no words until either a picture or the next chapter. My app is fully updated but still not working.

- Amazing app but some problems

The app crashes a lot when I try to load it it happened 4 times for a big Nate book and has happened many times before

- Why do you have to wait for the audiobooks and ebooks?

Since they are not real books why do you have to wait in a queue for a few weeks unless it’s available?

- Improvement

Sora is the best but i hate it when you have to wait to read a book Thank P.S sora is the best like the best way to read books

- Its ok....but

The app is really good for my late night reading and listening to audiobooks but sometimes it can be really slow and saying I have to sign in again. Please make an update where there is no bugs. PLEASE!

- Great app just one issue

This app is amazing! I love the variety of books on here. One thing I would like is to add a function where you can remove books that you've marked done. Please do this. Thank you! :)

- Thought it would be better

Sora takes forever to load I can’t even read 4 pages without it freezing

- Excellent Reading App

Perfect app!I like the way it allows you to add it to categories!What about stories in different languages?

- Real annoying bug

i quite like this app it’s really great for long car rides and late night reading The only thing I had a problem with was a bug that would sometimes occur: When I would try to tap onto the search section it would instead go to the home section meaning I couldn’t search for any books Even when I restarted the app and my phone it still remained the same Other than that the app is pretty good Thanks

- Good but 1 problem

Very often at random times my iPad freezes But everything else seems to be awesome😃😃😃

- Not bad but bit long loading

It takes a bit long to load Plz fix it

- The best

It is much easier than overdrive and just search and boop the book you wanted is there

- Not the best

All of my fav books aren’t here, and the books actually takes 9 hours to download. Plus, Sora has a lot of grammar mistakes in the books. In Warrior Cats, they even got a name wrong! This is stupid, and I should delete this app

- Amazing but

Amazing but I wanted the book the storey puppy and it not their could you please add some more books from David Williams Liz Pichon and holly Webb

- Bad

Bad books doesent have good books like where the wild things are or atleast stickman

- The best books ever

I love reading sora books

- This is good but needs some work

You need mango hill state school and secondary school

- I can’t log in

My problem with this app is that it won’t let me sign in. I’ve searched my school and the city I live in and it still would not work for me.

- I can’t find my school

This is really annoying because every time I type my school, it says two other random schools.

- Fantastic!

Best app ever! You can read any book!

- Its ok.....

Its a good app but there should be a wider range of books so theres more varieties to chose from,,

- Just Wow

I thought this app would be good but it crashes every minute and takes forever to load

- Good

But I just Can’t OPEN IT WHY? Please fix this

- really good a first but..

It was good for a few months then it asked me to sign in and then saying it was incorrect

- Signing up

It took me 4hour to do my name why? It sai not found like my email like what the

- Nice

It is good but there should be cricket books🏏

- GREAT 👍🏻

I think this is a great reading app for kids. Love it!!

- Problem

This sounds to me like a very good app but I can’t find my school

- Sora

It’s good but there is only one Harry Potter book

- good and bad.

It is good because it is educationable but i cant get in anymore so please fix it. :)


My school is not there I think I have searched everything about it and the name WHERE IS MY SCHOOL I WANT TO SEE IT!!!

- Can’t find my school!😡😡😡😡. Ahr!😡😡😡😡

My techer wanted me to bring this stuff but I’m hoping that it will work tomorrow morning!😡😡😡😡 find my school!!!!😡😡😡😡

- Sora

Doesn’t even have my fracking school

- Why not my school?

Hi Sora devs why does it not have Whitfield state school on it? It’s McManus street Australia Queensland cairns.

- Won’t let me in

At the start it was great but then it told me to log in again and when I put my username in it said it wasn’t valid and to try again I have been trying for an hour now and it still won’t let me enter.. please help 😕☹️

- Where’s my school

I’ve searched for West Ryde public school but that wasn’t it

- It is great

I love it

- Sora is awesome

Sora is amazing!!!!! I love it💜🐳

- It’s good

😀 (happy face)

- ....

- It suck

Don’t work

- It won’t let me sign in

It won’t let me in.the site just goes over and over again so i can’t see any books

- Glitchy

- Ok-ish

It’s ok, kinda. It always glitches and keeps Kicking me out. But I mean the books are good so :|

- Hope this might help

For anyone who is wondering how to find their school (because I sure was) you don’t search the school, you search the school board.

- Weird

I like the point of this but i don’t get it because this app was supposed to take out the inconvenience of library return dates and not having enough copies so what’s the point cool tho

- Bookmarks won’t save

My bookmark highlights DO NOT SAVE, so I constantly lose all my notes. It is extremely frustrating, to the point that I do not want to use Sora anymore because I can’t keep track of notes when they disappear from my book. I need these notes for classes. If it won’t save my notes, I won’t use the app.

- Horrid

This app is unbelievable in its bad design; not only is it’s login portal patchy at best, but downloading a book is a horrendous ordeal. If you don’t have a stable connection, don’t have background app refresh on, or happen to try downloading while it’s not feeling it, you will have to restart download many-a times. For a family who may have a data cap and like me, have to sit outside their local school to borrow their wifi for online schooling and downloading, this can be quite frustrating. For all those families who are dealing with CoVid and trying to find a solution to their children’s boredom or need to use Sora for school assignments, be warned that this app will give you a user experience that’ll make you wince whenever you think back to it.

- What happened?

This used to be my most used app, I read/listened to so many books but now they don’t have anything anymore. Like what, how can you not have any Orwell books or even something basic like Harry Potter? It’s pretty distressing what happened

- Meh

Takes lots of space on any device so watch out also it freezes alot but other wise its good

- ...

It dosnt have the best books in sora.... you have to wait at least 6 months for a popular book... what is there that sora can do? Even the bookmarks don’t even save

- It’s fine..

I gush got the app or game? And it’s just ok?

- Good app

The app is pretty good. The books though, are not for everyone. The books are for kids in grades 2-4. If you are older, like me you might find it hard to find books you are actually interested in.

- Gross smell

This app smells so bad it sells like if a rotting fish took a crap and congealed with a pound of grandpa’s week old chilli, but a family of rats with dementia died in it

- I love it

This is very good

- Meh

It’s not too bad on my computer. In fact, it works pretty well. I love reading books on Sora but it just won’t open on my mobile device. Cannot find my school and without a school you cannot get into it at all. If you are not using this for your school there is no use downloading this. Definitely needs some improvement.

- Dumb

Apparently only one person can listen to a book at a time??? It might just be a school thing because I’m using my school account but that’s pretty pathetic

- Reading is fun

You have to be in a school to do it and it’s really good if you love reading

- Great but not great for phones

I have tried the app on a school chrome book and it works great but when I try it on the phone it won’t let me sign in. The app take me to the sign in section and keeps reloading itself without signing me in. I have tried multiple times and it won’t let me even if I put the right password and username. Please fix it soon I really want to read the books on there.

- Mangas are good!

It was very good. I enjoyed reading a lot more :) Hopefully it helps encourage people to read?

- I hate it

I is a bad learning tool use real books

- Didn’t even work

The app didn’t even let my kid sign in to their account.

- Sora

I love it. It is so amazing!!!

- it’s not working

Every time I tried to click on my school board it always says it’s unavailable.👎👎👎terrible app

- Ok-ish

It’s good but it keeps freezing when I finish a chapter

- Lack of books

I would not recommend this app for anybody in grade 3 to 7 or 8 as the books they provided you with is horrible and is much to under level for my reading

- Sora

I like the app I would recommend it definitely For me the app was a good use But for everyone it’s different Hope u enjoy

- The new update

In the new update I cant read cuz I can’t see the words on the page. Other than that I love it.

- Good but can be better

It sometimes gliches and im always on hold for a book for longer than it says, also not enough science and nerd type books. But other than that it is a good app for school.

- Glob glob

I love books and this app is a true treasure trove.

- Great app!- sort of

So almost EVERY TIME i get in Sora and open a book it lags and i have to restart the app, all i want is to read, plz fix this Overall it’s a good app, add more books tho why only have 1-2 copies, WHY? Also plz add game over

- Awesome!

This app is awesome and lets me read my book in peace. Recommend to anyone! 👍👍

- Problems

I cant find my school!! It’s annoying me! Every time I try to find it makes me go to a school that’s far away! :( please fix this. It’s annoying

- Sucks

It won’t work and should get good

- Trash


- I Can Read During Quarantine!!!

This app is the best! I have had it for a while with my school but never really used it. Once my school and the public libraries closed I couldn’t read any new books! I started playing around with the app seeing which books they had and reading/listing to samples. This got me borrowing books such as Harry Potter. It was fun listing to books while doing other stuff like painting or cleaning! I admit the login proses was a bit confusing because you have to pick you’re school board, but other then that haven't had any issues. Would recommend this app if you aren’t able to get real books, although I do prefer real books 😝.

- Piggy’s

I had it on my iPad it was good and everything was fine then I switch to my phone and I can’t even find my school it’s making me so mad so I would give it 5 stars but since my school and another school that I was going to use cuz my mom works there in not on it so I’m really frustrated I’m trying to do stuff and it’s not alloweong me to find my school

- Trash


- My progress disappeared!

I was reading my book and it still had 3 dues TIL it had to be returned and my iPad crashed, when I got back on Sora my reading progress and my books were all gone, my library was empty this app is frustrating and was really disappointed in this app.

- Not bad

This app was awesome when it worked. I can’t log back in and I can’t read any book. I will say the selection of books is good.

- Cool sora

Sora only can read cool

- E

Hello I love Sora, I just wish that you could zoom in so that it’s easier to read. :)

- bad


- No school name

First I started typing in my school, which isn’t particularly popular but none the less I did. I could.d not find it. At this point a bit fed up but I desired to look at the reviews for some tips. That’s where I found the trick I needed, to type in the district. I tried and no luck. Now I've just deleted multiple apps for storage to be given no app. Thanks.

- Privacy?

When I sign in to the app it just says something is wrong and then a private policy pops up I can’t even sign in wow!

- There is only English books

It’s bad

- 👎

It dose not even download

- The app sucks

It’s stupid it simulates a real Library so if some get a book u can’t it’s a appp 😡🥶🥺🥵🙁😤🤯😢😖😱🤬🤯🥵😳

- An Online Library!

I really love this app! There’s a lot of options to choose what font/color you’re most comfortable with. I suggest adding an option on how to read it though. I like to read while scrolling, it’s much easier for me that way instead of swiping to the left. If you add that feature, I’ll be very grateful!

- Suprem

Noscope 420+ can’t wait to read fortnut tips and tricks

- What school?

So my school is Glad Park Public School. Which school do I press?
