Why only iPad
Way to do a terrible job ACEP. This review is for the program not the content. Why would anyone spend $90 on a book that can only be read on your iPad. Might as well buy the actual book. They should have published it in iBooks, kindle and nook so that I can read it anywhere anytime. There is no need for ACEP to reinvent the ebook. Also the format is just ok. Each chapter is presented like a single long page that you scroll up and down. There is no way to jump to the end of the chapter and you can't see how many pages are in a chapter.
For this to be an app and not available as an iBook, I expected some sort of features that are inherent in any of the multiple e-readers like highlighting, underlining, ability to change font size, or any of a number of things. This is only the book itself. I don't get why it wasn't just sold through the iBook store instead.
