Everything on here is pretty straight forward and easy to use. The only thing that could use work is the function of the app reading to you. I found this glitchy and it would read the bottom disclaimers and reference notes. It also reads out of order and jumps around mid paragraph so it gets confusing especially if you are trying to listen while driving. Basically impossible to follow if you aren't looking at the highlighted text. For this reason I gave it a 4 star

The app (which claims to have the full functionality of the desktop site) does not let me make any changes to how I read the book (only shows double page, side by side with no option to change to single page). Uninstalling and just using the webpage version is better but still overall terrible experience, constant resizing and popping back pages, etc.. The fact that I have to use this service to access my text book I paid for is honestly just absurd.

This app is terrible. As a faculty member books are not populating in the app. after they are purchased/sampled. On a laptop or pc it works great. Mobile device is another story. Also, there is no way to delete books since there appears to be a limited amount you can have in your bookshelf. Very frustrating.
