I was hoping to use my new tablet to do my textbook reading late at night. I only have 1 rented book, and after at least 4 hours, it still hasn't finished syncing. I have a reasonably fast connection. I see from other reviews that it is just as bad when opened. I don't think I will be renting another electronic textbook with this app.

Turning pages is slow... Can't copy and paste to quote something in the book... Unintuitive interface... Low resolution text (Pages look like photo copies or as if a low quality printer printed them)... Can't scroll through pages with the mouse wheel... Can't change the font size and when you zoom in, everything becomes a little fuzzy... Can't change page background color... When you are zoomed in and change the page, the next page is in the same location that you zoomed to so you are forced to keep scrolling up and down every time you want to change a page while zoomed in. Kindle for example, does all that. I would've gotten the books on Kindle but since B&N seems to have an exclusive deal with the school or something, I couldn't find the books anywhere else.

Lacking Features

Very basic interface, feels like a half-finished app which isn't exactly something you want for your expensive textbooks. Doesn't beat out classic paper options quite yet

Can't scroll through pages

Yuzu does not allow the user to scroll through pages (i.e. be able to see the bottom of one page and the top of the next), we can only click through the pages like slides. I cannot learn this way, I need to be able to scan through a text seamlessly. I do not recommend this app, I will be getting a hard copy of my textbooks now.

Just downloaded the app to try and get it all figured out before classes start on Monday. Go to open the app and it pops up then instantly closes. Tried to open at least 20 times keeps doing the same thing. Terrible product, much easier to just go to the website and do it from there but I doubt that I will be renting text books online from now on because of this...

The most terrible User Interface i have ever seen

Using this for a text is the most horrendous thing i have experienced. It would have been easier and better for me hand write the book back out than to try to use this thing.

Needs some work.

Severely lacking in functionality plain and simple. Get the books through another source.

Inconsistent Functionality

Not a very intuitive page viewing. Zooming sometimes wont let you view the whole page without zooming out and then back in. Page navigation is sporadic.

Such a headache

I decided to go against the reviews that I had read about YUZU, thinking, "Hey, it couldn't possibly happen to me!"......... Stupid app never works. Even when it opens (if it decides to not display the Error message) I can rarely read the pages it shows( again, if it shows any of the pages). Definitely more trouble to use than its worth. Will never use after I finish with my current classes.

Headache - Should have bought the physical book

Nothing is easy about this app. Difficult to read on my tablet since it does not adjust to the size of my screen so I am constantly zooming in and out and trying to repositioning it. If it is expanded to something like you would see in text book, 11 pt font, the side is completely cut off so I have to read it in something like 8 pt font. Trying to read while not connected to a network is very slow and forget about trying to highlight.
