Nice app but needs revisions! The help instructions on how can I authenticate my app is kinda hard to follow, so I gave up ay my first try. I logged-in on their "website search database" and saw the mini advertisement / announcement below regarding this app for the android and iphone. And to my surprise, its really fast to authenticate the app! I hope you could make authenticating easier like just asking for the username and password and not by sending these instructions to email. Also I hope you could put the citation styles here!
Search isn't good I have it all set up correctly and verified but when I use the web version of Ebsco I get great results. More often than not, when I use this app I get no results whatsoever. It would be a 5 star app if it gave me what I search for as well as it does on the web.
It works now I had initial problems but followed the App's instructions and it now works. Here's how: 1. I downloaded the app to my phone 2. I logged into EBSCO on my PC through my college website (or wherever you're subscribed - it might work on phones/tablets but I didn't try that). 3. I clicked on the "New: EBSCOhost iPhone and Android Applications" at the bottom of the "Choose Databases" page (i.e., the first page that opened for me after logging in). 4. I entered my Gmail address in the dialogue box that popped up 5. On my phone, I opened the email and clicked on the authorisation link 6. This opened the EBSCOHost App and I was in. I could search for articles and download pdfs and everything; if they enable browsing under publications and whatnot rather than just searching that would get it 5 stars but I'm happy with it for now.
"pdf download failed" I get access to thousands of sources but I have been unable to save or download a single article. I am greeted with the message I put in the title. What is the problem? I am running firmware 2.2 since no higher is available for my phone. Can you fix this??
Pathetic Allows you to do nothing other than search. EBSCO is worthless on android. Can't view books in the web browser can't download books with Bluefire and can't view them in their own app. What a tremendous waste.
A Must for Students!! Absolutely PERFECT for the University types who cannot sit at a computer desk trawling through hundreds of journals for one or two quotes!
