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

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.

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.

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!!!

Kno - NO - No Way to Find Multimedia Texts

I brought this to Kno's Attention 2 years ago ..... nothing has been done improve the situation. My interest is in finding multimedia text books in the sciences.

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.

Has potential but not there yet

This app is good apart from 2 major flaws. There appeared to be no way for me to navigate my text books through the table of contents like I so easily can with nook study. This is an essential feature of an etext book app. Also as others have stated it needs to support hand written notes.

Very handy and convenient app

I like this app as it allows me to use digital textbooks which are generally cheaper and easier to carry than paper textbooks. One thing I would like to see added is the ability to use the horizontal scroll function on my mouse's scroll wheel to change pages back and forth rather than to have to constantly click on the left and right arrows. This would be really handy because it would negate the need to be constantly moving the mouse. This isn't too much of an issue on a device with a touch screen but for a device without a touch screen this would be a huge improvement.
