This app doesn't work with windows 10. I wasted 100 bucks on this ebook.

Have used it for years but since Windows 10 came along it doesn't let me log on in the app through my laptop

Error

Don't know why, but I downloaded this app as I am starting college soon and was expecting an app that will tremendously help me. However, when I attempted to register, windows just tells me that there has been an error in trying to register me. It might be because of Windows 10, or because I have an HP Envy x360, but I am still disappointed.

Good Product

Loads quickly, good search and browse utility, great customer service. (Return policy is a little wacky, but we worked through it. It was my mistake initially we had to fix, but David at customer support was very friendly and worked it out for me). Have to say I like the reader more than Amazon's, especially the Windows App version.

this app is great

I have had other people in my classes with different apps for textbooks and the lag on the program is really disappointing. I have a neck injury so carrying books is going to be a real problem for me come the fall. So I decided to take a gamble and install this app, the sample books are super fast and the graphics are amazing I wish I would have installed this for spring!!! This app is wonderful, it also gives you the option to use this app for K -12!!!! I love that!!!

Great app

What more can you ask for. The app has almost every book my school requires, (impressive, since there are multiple publishers), has highlight and annotation tools, and is very simple to use. My only complaint is the lack of zoom on books that are a wacky physical size if they were printed on paper. Best part is that I see exactly the same thing my classmates who are carrying three five pound books see, yet I only carry a 1.5 lb Surface.

Awesome app for Windows, love the interface!

Such a great place to go within the Kno app with a large variety of education applications available. Great interface and easy to use and navigate!

Good App Could be Great if...

JUDGING THE APP FOR WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT WORKS I absolutely love the app, highlighting, I can take notes, sync my notes and highlights so I can view them online when I don't have my tablet. It is by far the best app I have come across... It is a good app that could be great if... I had the features from the ipad at my fingertips here on the surface tablet. No journal, notecards, course manager, or dropbox really limits me, im told its all on its way which is awesome

Every College Student Deserves this App

I'm a senior so I've come across quite a few e-textbook apps in my day. A few words to describe this app - convenient, cheap, useful and EASY. Kno textbooks definitely knows what they're doing

Fantastic for students!!

Kno has a great library of books to choose from, I was able to find most of them for my classes! I do wish you could browse the store within the app, that would be nicer, but other than that, great app! Very useful and helpful!
