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?
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.
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.
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...
Love safari, Android app needs work I find safari really useful but the android app is buggy compared to the the IOS counterpart. It has a really frustrating bug when you navigate to a page from the table of contents or a search. The font size is tiny causing you to constantly resize. This the affects the next page making the first time massive. Happens on tablet and phone.
Does not hold place Constantly skips back to start of chapter when returning to app or even when phone changes orientation. Bookmarks do not appear to work, only sending to start of chapter. However is nice to have books on mobile, and able to organize them into folders. App does appear to sync last read book from web app.
Fixes an issues that caused some users to see blank pages when opening a book.
