Cannot access anything through this app I cannot access the books unless I use the web only version. I can't check it out because it somehow thinks access to my sd card is denied which I have given the app permission to access... A complete waste of my time, effort, energy, and GPA...
Good service App needs work CourseSmart in general is a great option, this app has some issues on a mid size or smaller tablet and is flat out unusable on a phone. The pages are exact copies of the physical text so in order to read it you must zoom in and scroll around the page. While this in itself is not the greatest reading experience, it's not the worst either. The reason I have given it 2 stars is because it is extremely difficult to swipe pages. I frequently find myself having to make several attempts to turn the page.
Hate it First your rent a license for book not a download. Second your have to log in. Third requires internet on my computer. Fourth ahhhhhhhh. Fifth your license expires meaning if you pay for a book you might actually want your screwed. have to pay 40$+ for another license that expires. Sixth rendering causes a reload, 7th no book mark. Just fing Hate it. Will never buy another or rent rather another book from them again. Prefer hard backs no one can't take them away or rather expire them. Knowledge is power
Seriously? This is what took the place of real college text books? Worst experience reading ever! Gave it a 1 because the option exsisted. Not that I had any choice though.
Does Not Sign In I can not sign in. I very carefully typed pw and username. Every time it says incorrect, sign in on the computer with same pw and username, signs right in. I need to be able to access on other devices because I can't always carry my laptop around. If this is fixed, 5 starts easy.
Update won't work on my nook Iuse this app everyday to read my course material and now the update isn't compatable with my nook hd. Would really like this fixed.
