For Those Having Trouble with the App...

The Know app is great, I've been using it for a long-time now and think that of the available apps, this one takes the cake. Kno was bought out by Intel a while back - so the Windows 10 App no longer works. You can, however, go to the Kno website (link in the app details) and download the app for Windows - which will download the Intel Study App (the replacement for Kno). If you are getting errors trying to sign in, or while using the app, you should update to the Intel Study App instead.

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.

Doesn't Even Work

Bought a book, and before I could even log in it says my date and time is wrong. Look and it is correctly set. So I hit continue and it hangs when trying to log in. The app is garbage

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.

Needs improvement

Many much needed functions lacking! Why can't you take notes with the pen!!??? An important function. Wish there were more options for customization of size while reading, color, and background. More importantly, when I import a document, there is no option to remove it!!! Holy cow that is annoying. I 'kno' this app could be better!!!

It's not a bad app for textbooks. The content menu is easy to pull up and navigates easily enough. There isn't, however, ANY option to change the view from one page on the screen. Orientation doesn't change it, and you can't add another page. I've looked EVERYWHERE in the app, turned my tablet, and tried a thousand different ways to do it, and it's apparently impossible. Also, the highlight feature doesn't have anywhere near as many options as other apps I've used for reading. It's basic functioning, at best. Not really college-level application. Close, but not quite close enough, especially for an app that claims to be for textbooks specifically.

First time using an ebook is a positive experience

I was hesitant at first purchasing an ebook but after using Kno Textbooks for a couple weeks now I am really happy I did. It's easy, fast, and the highlighting tool is really useful. I have only one suggestion that should be really considered by the developers of this app. PLEASE add writing and stylus support for users. I use Kno textbooks on my surface pro and it would be amazing to be able to write my notes, draw, etc. PLEASE look into that and this would be the ultimate ebook application

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!!!
