The app shuts off all the time for no reason.

Needs to be more like kindle reads

If you made this read more like a kindle book with graphics I’d probably buy and read more books.

Edit: Issue with sync

I checked the troubleshooting page for the sync issue, I still haven’t been able to sync my notes to my iPad.. I checked my WiFi and connection already..

Disappointing

After spending gobs of money on these electronic textbooks, I realize the highlighting features are sluggish and buggy, I have no ability to write my own notes in the margins, and I can’t even zoom in on the text to see it better. I’d happily move my textbook, that I bought at a hefty price into a better reading and notes app, but there’s no option for that either. There is something that’s just not right about this. Textbook publishers are crooks!

This app is a joke. You can’t turn the pages easily, you can’t select a page easily, it reads all the in text citations, the support staff are a joke (Mark B) and the support page isn’t clear. Total waste of my previous studying time.

Horrible

If I could give negative stars I would. The whole point to the app is so I don’t have to go on the website.

Not use friendly, you can't zoom, can't print. Only two highlighter colors, search function does not work properly. I am forced to use this app by the institution I am studying with. Once I'm done it will be deleted off my phone 👎🏼

You cannot make flash cards within the app, but you can make them on the webpage. Otherwise a good app to read your digital textbook

Can’t use multiple highlight colors. When I tap to highlight a word and define it, the ui cycles between full screen and toolbars.
