Very useful.

Great platform for e-textbook reading. It's much more user-friendly than the online version. Thanks!

Good But some Problems

Every time I open the app each page says that I am in preview mode even though I have purchased the book. Also, I don't see a way in which to sign out and sign back in

Needs a lot of work

Slow loading pages, offline mode does not work through the app, grainy text. Not pleasant experience.

Besides the occasional loading issue, this app is good. A cheap alternative to buying college textbooks. I like the highlight and note options.

Good but needs some TLC

I like this app way better than the website but a couple of things are needed. - Being able to bookmark books on the bookshelf and not have to scroll through them all to find the one I need - Audio for the books - Having offline availability - When switching between apps not having the page glitch back to my bookmarked page but staying on the page I an currently on. These are mostly minor things, but as a whole the app is great. Once these things, especially offline availability are available I will give it 5 stars.

Why is there no offline reading option?

This app would be great if you could read the textbooks offline. The lack of ability to do this makes me wish I had either purchased my books from a different company or bought an android tablet/iPad.

Only for Windows PCs and Tablets as usual :-(

What is wrong with these companies? How do they expect us consumers to take advantage of the cloud without a phone version of the app? The (Cloud) means that your work travels with you. Not everyone can always carry a luggy tablet or laptop around.

Almost as good as Android version.

Currently does not allow you to check out a book for offline mode like their Android version does. There is no option to purchase books using the app. Other than that, works well enough to use.

Super Valuable App

Great decision to make a Windows app, CourseSmart! I really appreciate that I can get to my books while on-the-go. And I don't need my backpack either, which is a big deal to me. Thanks so much. Clean interface and nice UX too. Well done.
