I can't see charts and tables. They are too small. I have to use the Bookshelf app for Windows to see them. I like to listen when driving or doing housework, but every 2 minutes, I have to pick up my phone & turn it 90 degrees to get it to continue to play. The distraction caused by constantly picking up my phone & rotating it to continue to listen to my textbook is not exactly safe when stuck in traffic on the freeway. Hard to multitask when I have to stop & rotate phone to continue housework.

I love being able to access my textbooks on literally all of my devices ! It's definitely come in handy in terms of finding time to study. The app has a clean interface and is easy to download and navigate through. Its not a huge download either so it won't make your devices lag in return for having the app. Absolutely love this app!!!

Not great for audible reading bc voice is generic robo computer. If you want to be able to listen to someone read out loud in a non robo voice, purchase book on audible. BUT, good for on the go e-reading, highlighting passages, and notes. If you are using a desktop, its convenient to have bookshelf open in one window and another window when you are writing your paper assignment. If vital source purchases the license for the audible for the books, this would be the #1 app we all use.
