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.
It's ok The content is good but the application needs more improvements. Everytime I rotate my tablet, fonts get too small to read. To fix this issue I have change the font size every time which is annoying. Also, when I read source code samples stored as images, there are two issues. Font is too small to read, I have to click the image to see it bigger. The second problem is that some of those images are divided into multiple small images. I have to click the top of the image to see the top half and click the bottom to switch to the bottom half, again it's annoying.
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...
I really like the Safari web site, but the app simply doesn't work on my Nexus 9 tablet. I have access through ACM, but every time I try to log in, it does in fact log me in and I can see my books, but within seconds the screen flips and I get "your session has been logged out, resetting session". It takes me back to the login screen, and we repeat the same steps again and again. I can't give the app more than one star because it consistently fails for me on a stock Google device.
Fixes an issues that caused some users to see blank pages when opening a book.
