Textbook at your fingertips!

The textbook was right there on my laptop screen! Transformational in education, material availability, and accessibility! Wow.

Great App

Still a little rough around the edges, but definitely worth the download

Okay Alpha

Doesn't have the same functions as the iOS or android apps. Not very to highlight or take notes. Not sure why this app was released given the limitations of using it.

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.

Serious issues

I have been avoiding Etext due to Coursesmart not being windows friendly and should have continued but thought I would give it another try. This app however is a JOKE. It worked for about a day with one text book and now continually says it's unable to access my books. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and I'm still getting nothing but errors. The Brower doesn't support Internet explorer for offline reading downloading either which I find annoying especially since that's what my school recommends for classes. On top of that the online reading through a browser is poor, crowded and small. So instead of reading my text like I was planning on doing I'm writing a review to let others know to AVOID ETEXT THROUGH COURSESMART because it's just a head ache waiting to happen.

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.
