Pretty good

I didn't get any of the lag/crash issues others reported, and the downloaded files can be pretty big... My only complaint is that I can't view two pages at a time on my 1920x1080 screen. Come on.

Buy your book somewhere else

The app itself works pretty much the same as the website, but this service is just not good. There is no option for printing pages, it doesn't work on some browsers, it shows pages in a weird way(it usually shows you half of one page and half of another), there is no option for searching the book for a word or phrase, you can't select a sentence and copy and paste it, and overall it's just difficult to navigate. This is all stuff that exists in all other e-books I've bought; really regret buying my book from here.

So Far Not So Good

I've literally only had this app for about two minutes, and I've already gotten an error when trying to create an account... really?! Hoping my school will switch to a different system soon.

Needs major improvement

Touch interface is going haywire, when I try to zoom in, it spazzes and moves the screen, then messes it up so much that I have to restart the app just to get back to a normal viewing size. It's a pain. Additionally, quicker/easier access to bookmarks would be fantastic. I constantly switch from one page to the "back of the book" to check my answers, and right now it's a multistep process that could be improved upon.

Awful

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.

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.
