Excellent Those who lack the basic understanding to install a viewer to read the downloaded ebooks need to take a course in basic computer skills. Please just install a viewer and all is good, if it still doesn't work then you may have an issue with your phone set up, try resetting defaults. Reading the comments it is truly amazing how so many struggle with the basics... Install POCKETBOOK for those who are struggling. Alternatively search for eBook viewer or epub viewer there are loads available!
Extremely annoyed. Can download my course content but like the other reviews I can't get the books to open. Come on OU. Get it sorted. This could have been such a great app but it is sadly letting us OU Students down.1 out of 5 only cause it won't let me rate it 0_stars:0(
Rubbish There isn't much you can do with this app except download and read the course material. However the ebooks will not open. It says I need the correct app, but dose not say what that app is. I have multiple pdf readers, ebook readers and office software but still it won't open the books. Weak.
Hopeless for WiFi only tablets. 'Anywhere' would imply that you could access your study material on your android device in any location. This is not the case. The app tries to update every time it is opened. If you have no internet connection it locks you out. Why? What on earth is the reason for making the app so un-usable on a WiFi only tablet?
FRUSTRATING I can download the ebooks but then it tells me I need another app(does not specify) to be able to read the books. Not happy. Looks like it could be a useful app for me if it was working correctly.
Pretty pointless There is no value added. The main website is largely mobile friendly and the books can be downloaded in your preferred format. Why bother?
