Ratings and Reviews
Worst Publisher App I've seen
This app really misses the mark on all counts. Did they have any users test drive it before release? It needs to be improved for use with an iPad - no one actually reads full articles on an iPhone and the fact that this one doesn't even scale the screen size up makes it almost unusable. I'm going to use a browser to read these articles even if every other journal I read has a very functional app. The search is not very straight forward or easy. Kudos that Springer publishes so many journals (?) but having to scroll through all or even half of them every time i want to find one of the few that interest me is annoying to say the least. Also, easy pdf download would be nice for markup, but that is a common shortcoming of these publisher apps.
The search options and amount of content is wonderful, but there's one huge limitation - when I click "full text", it goes to a screen with a narrow little column of text that's entirely unreadable. If you tilt your iPhone horizontally, that helps a lot. If Springer fixes that, it would be great!
Also, it would be great to have an iPad worthy version. I tried this version, and after expanding to full screen size, the text is too blurry to enjoy.
A great app!
You can access articles and books on your iPhone. I like this app! Doesn't crash.
