Customer Reviews

Works Well - Lacks Features

This app has worked well on my iPhone as well as my iPad; it's nice to see how it syncs almost instant between versions, including the PC.

That said, I don't like the highlight functionality for mobile devices even more than I dislike the PC highlighting .

(Would it be difficult to just allow students to select a color and designate their own names for them? You know, to use highlighters like we do in "real" books?)

I would love to see additional features that allow me to "write in the margins" on my tablet, using technology akin to Penultimate. I would pay to add that feature. Immediately.

Overall, all of the features are lackluster (yes, all). Nonetheless, it does the job.

Works great

Just purchased my BUSN6 book, after reading previous reviews I almost didn't but glad I did. This app works just fine on my iPhone 6 Plus I am able to make the print larger or smaller and highlight things. I think it works great.

Great App

Works extremely well for me! iPhone 6 plus, as well as my MacBook Pro. I almost didn't download it because the horrible reviews but I said I will try it and if it don't work request a refund from McGraw and get the hard copy.. But no disappointments here :) !!
