Lev Saraiva review

20 Dec 2017

If you love to read books, the Lev Saraiva app is the best option for you. It is ranked as the largest online bookstore in Brazil and features thousands of free and buyable books so you can always have your favorite book with you wherever you go. Apart from being one of the most popular e-book stores, it is also incredibly easy to use and its interface is designed to offer you a hassle-free reading experience.

But what's more is that the Saraiva website offers you even more content than the app itself with thousands of additional e-books from all across the globe at your fingertips. Not only does the Lev Saraiva app let you read your favorite books, but it also allows you to mark, highlight, search, and make notes. You can even stop reading at any time and get back to it quickly with autosave. And with text-to-speech features, you can have your books read out to you.

Interface 8/10

Lev Saraiva offers you so much, yet delivers it all in a simple, user-friendly package. The app and all its features are clearly displayed so that you always know what you're doing. From highlighting to searching, and everything else in between, the app screams simplicity. You get access to all the editing options right on the text, so you need not look for them in hidden menus. With a drop-down menu for advanced features, you will never have to leave a page again.

Menu and Features 8/10

In the Lev Saraiva app, you get a very minimalistic menu which offers required functions rather than unnecessary ones. Highlighting, searching, sharing, fonts, translations, and text-to-speech are just a few of the menu options available. The features include making notes, non-stop reading on all connected devices, sharing ideas on social media like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and reading all kinds of formats. The app is a complete and remarkable e-book store that definitely stands out when it comes to reading on-the-go.

Usability 9/10

As described above, the app is extremely user-friendly. It is simple to understand and even simpler to use for all ages. All the features are readily available and can be accessed with a single tap of a button. The app is quite basic in terms of functionality, albeit offering a dense volume of online books. Scrolling through pages, browsing through books, or just searching for your favorites is as easy as swiping left or right.

Any glitches? 7/10

While the app runs smoothly while reading, it does face some difficulty when it comes to downloading new books. An error warning is quite often seen when trying to download a book which should be fixed with an update. There are even some complaints about the app not working on Kindle devices which should also be fixed with an update.

Device Compatibility

The Lev Saraiva app is a universally used and recognized e-book app and is therefore compatible with the majority of the devices out there. It is supported on Android, iOS, and Windows operating systems.

Is it any good?

If you are an avid book reader, then Lev Saraiva is a perfect option for you. It offers a plethora of Portuguese books as well as thousands of international titles as well. With over 200 free to read books available, you don't need to splash out money to buy new ones quickly. Given the fact that there are a few glitches, the app definitely has a lot more advantages rather than disadvantages.
