In the news:

“Putting textbooks on tablets solves a number of traditional problems. The two most obvious are saving money and back pain.”

“After Inkling made its public debut more than two years ago, It quickly became known as the startup that made super well-designed interactive college textbooks for the iPad.”

“Better than just reproducing text in an online setting, Inkling makes educational text interactive, supporting note-taking, social discussion of content and internal search (like Google for your textbook!).”

“A new company called Inkling hopes to break the standard textbook model and help textbooks enter the interactive age by letting students share and comment on the texts and interact with fellow students.”

Customer Reviews

Best ebook app for medical textbooks.

This is the best ebook app for medicine textbooks, especially compared with Kindle or iBooks. Images are high-resolution and allows zooming, and table of content is well-organized which allows for easy navigation. Formatting is also beautiful, and usually consistent with the print book.

My understanding is that Inkling used to produce ebooks in-house, but that is no longer the case. Right now there is a large library of medical books from LWW and Elsevier. LWW books are available from the Inkling website/app, and LWW now also bundle their ebooks with the print books. Elsevier books are available on either Student Consult or Expert Consult websites, and are also bundled with print books. Both publishers are actively publishing on the Inkling platform, so all the latest editions are there. Unfortunately, McGraw-Hill no longer publishes on Inkling, so their selection is rather sparse. Medicine seems to have the largest selection, other disciplines seem limited in comparison.

All in all, the best textbook reading experience on Apple devices, especially for medical textbooks. I hope they can get more publishing deals and expand their library. It would also be nice if there is a more accessible central web store that is updated regularly. Both Student Consult and Expert Consult update their stores with new books on a regular basis, but the main Inkling store front has not been updated for sometime, even though new books are being added.

Great App, content lacking + bugs

I’ve been using this app since it came out. It’s awesome for textbooks, the only problem is that there is very little content. In the years I’ve been using it, it seems they haven’t really added much. Also, it has a few bugs in it that are annoying. For example, editing profile information doesn’t let you see what you’re typing. Also doesn’t let you edit your picture. Small concerns. The content they do have is A+.

Awesome app

This is the best e-reader I have ever used, especially for textbooks. The layout is clean and the interface is intuitive. It's my new favorite way to read textbooks.
