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.More
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.More
I absolutely hate Yuzu.
Why doesn't this work like any other digital textbook? If you have a widescreen laptop it is pretty much unusable. In order to see the book you are constantly scrolling and enlarging. Not very useful. I thought if I switched to using it on my tablet at least I could have a better vertical view. NOPE! It will not adjust and you are stuck with an even smaller view that is lengthwise...Next time I sign up for a for a class that uses a textbook with YUZU I will drop it immediately. NOT WORTH THE FRUSTRATION. I am copying and pasting each page onto OneNote then printing it out. What a waste of time...More
Once you download your EBooks on to this system it is so easy to highlight information and reference pages and etc.More
Poor software desgin
The software to read the e-textbooks is not intuitive and needs a massive overhaul. The scroll wheel on the mouse should be utilized to either turn the pages or zoom in/out of the text. Turning pages and zoom in using the on-screen tools is not user friendly.More
What is this?
I bought an access code for a textbook expecting a Decent app that would be able to be used on all my media devices (usually the norm today), But instead It is incompatible with most of my devices and for me, can only be used over the net. Honestly, if I could, It would be much more simple to just copy and paste the page to a plain .txt document, if only the app allowed any type of useful user interaction... I'm tempted to drop out of college, just so I can try and forget this app.More
Beware of Investment...
You can not "print" hands on notes, I'm renting this garbage and can not participate the way I can utilize a book. Call me Fred Flintstone, however its not even Jetson Friendly, no down loads and saves, one page at a time no quick references from 30 pages out to page 6 or back again etc...,. Waste of my funds. not happy and returning two others to Bookstore. Thank goodness for refunds before you activate this product.More
touch controls are decent, mouse controls not so much. mouse wheel seems to serve no purpose. searching the document fails to retrieve results in any semblance of reasonable time. searching for a figure by figure number alone had no results. Waste of time and money, I'd rather cut up the real book and make a pdf out of it.More
Only if you have no other choice
Even though the app downloads your books for offline use, accessing them is very slow. Turning pages takes a second, and searching takes entirely too long. Furthermore, you can only search the entire book at once, not a chapter at a time. The app is better than their web reader, but not by much. Simply clicking on a page opens up a "sticky note" dialog which also takes a while, so don't accidentally do that! If you click and drag, it highlights. All in all, the app is slow, somewhat unresponsive, and very basic. If it wasn't 100$ cheaper per text book for me to get them this way, I would look for a different option.More
Does NOT allow you to edit or erase your previews highlighted sections in the book. It is not compatible on the first Kindles. I am not happy with the website or application. I think this needs some serious upgrading and changes ASAP!! After this semester I will no longer be using this site/app! Waste of time.More
