Ratings and Reviews
Can not view material
I downloaded the help in hopes of accessing the book to read during work. I have downloaded the book 3 times now and still pulls up a white screen every single time. I can access the chapters and descriptions but when it takes me to the book I get a white screen or error message saying book not found. Running the most up to date IOS system. No problem accessing from safari or my laptop but cannot access from the app. Seems like a recurring issue from the developer as previous reviews state the same issue.
Update: Took me 5 times to download the book before it finally worked. Not a good first start for the app but will utilize and comment again once class is completed.
Great for reading chapters on the go.
I work an average of 48 a week with kids, and community involvement. This app has significantly dropped the hours require to be by a computer. I can read all the chapters I need to from my phone and be ready to knock out homework when I get to my PC.
The only two things that are distracting is the top bar that continually appears and disappears when scrolling through material, I would rather it just be locked on. And I also wish I could access my homework modules as well as the videos. Other than that, it is what you make of it.
Book doesn’t open. Can’t view material.
When I download the e-book and try to open the book, it goes to a blank white page and makes the app useless. Once I relaunch the app, I have to once again downloaded the e-book ONLY to have the same problem happen again. All this app achieves therefore is wasting data by downloading a book over and over again only to never access the actual content within the book.
Update: No one has gotten back to me on this issue, nor have they tried to fix the application to counteract this problem. For a company that takes so much money from students and schools, they seem to be unable to hire competent programmers.
We are very sorry for the ongoing problem you are having with the e-book. Our engineers are working on the problem as quickly as they can. I will continue to connect via email to update you. Again, apologies for this problem.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
