Quirky app, great content The Safari subscription model gives me access to amazingly useful and current content. The Safari app works, but has lots of usability bugs. For example, I have to increase the font size in order to read on my Nexus 7, but this causes render problems such as clipping the left margin. Safari sometimes resets my font choice when turning the page. I'm really happy overall with Safari. The app just needs some love. Or maybe move the longtime original Safari members to the new reader app and close this one?
This app really needs some love, as it just doesn't do its job. The controls are really flaky and don't always do what they should. Example: hit the center to display the UI controls, and if there's a picture on the page it shows the picture zoom, going back via button or controls remove the UI controls again. They also disappear too quickly. The content is great, but this app isn't. Please make it work better. Also, you could look into the newsstand format, and follow and Material design guidelines. It would make it really easy to use and intuitive.
Great content, app needs help The Safari subscription itself is awesome. However, there are two major issues with the app that prevent me from wanting to use it. The first is that I have trouble reading because there is too much contrast. Other e-readers provide the ability to make the background light brown or off white, which makes it much easier on my eyes. The second problem is that the first page I read when I reopen a book is formatted as if I'm reading it on a computer monitor.
Different versions I asked my company to contract this service due to my previous experience with safari books.. But this app is completely put of date... A 2012 app really? Don't you think your clients deserve some better... Like safari queue?... As I could see the content provided is basically the same.. But this version is far more limited... Really upset... I think I ask them to get back to skillsoft...
Please add screen cast feature (or make an app for Roku). App often locks up, or doesn't register that I watched a lesson and starts me back on a video I've already watched. Love what's available to me through the Safari subscription but wish it were accessible in a more user friendly way.
Not very good When reading a book with code samples, some pages have very small font which I struggle to resize. Switching from portrait to landscape also makes the text too small to read. While most text can be resized, illustrations and math formulas cannot. The search feature is terrible, as the "back" button after choosing a match exits the book! Overall this is very bad for a paid service.
Fixes an issues that caused some users to see blank pages when opening a book.
