Worst book reader ever!

Impossible to access any of the multimedia resources. Extremely disappointing


Awesome Application

This is excellent for education and keeping your books in one app.

Most awkward app

First of all, the app is user unfriendly. Second of all, shuts down or not showing content too often. I would not have used this app if it weren’t for the school which this app was the only alternative.
