Read aloud function needs to be fixed Read allowed only works from the beginning of the chapter in my books it doesn't allow me to select where I wanted to start reading from like the desktop version. So far if I miss something I can't go back to the specific section the reading starts from the first page of the chapter. Once that issue is fixed it will be perfect.
If I could give it a 0 right now I would At first the app worked fine, I loaded my school book and was reading, but then I realized I couldn't use any of the pdf links in the text on my phone or tablet. Tried to email the support TO BE TOLD I CANT EMAIL FOR SUPPORT. Apparently, it flagged my email for spam. Great. So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling bookshelf and adobe, and all of a sudden I can't open my book at all on either my phone or my tablet. So now I can't do anything. So much for studying today. Wouldn't recommend.
Overall good, but should have an option to disable automatic updates which would bring it to 4 stars. Edit: I am referring to updates to the app's book library, which can prevent offline reading in disconnected environments like the subway.
Complete crap. Avoid at all cost. This is the glitchest program I have ever used. Three quarters of the time I open my books the formulas don't show up properly and the highlighting doesn't work, also asking it to jump directly to different places doesn't work, plus the program randomly jumps around, breaking my concentration while reading. I hate the developers of this program so much, especially because it's the only way I can get a digital copy of the books for my course. If you don't absolutely have to dl this pile of crap then don't!
Buck up Pathetic app always giving problem . I can't even access a textbook. Make it work properly for once. Come on . Seriously this app can't even work properly and loading between page to page takes forever. I am on fiber connection BTW. This is so pathetic
Mediocre The app is very slow and doesn't seem to sync across devices. The read out loud option is a great addition, however it performs poorly: reads the copyright statement on every single page as well as the page numbers and chapter headings. It doesn't know how to read equations and doesn't seem to be going to the next page automatically. Please fix the read aloud for better rating.
