The app does not support any activities or quizzes. Basically it is just an e-reader. So you still need to access MindTap from a computer to actually do work.
Updated review 4/5
By Arica momma
Works great since the last update. Thanks!
Used to crash every time I tried to opened 4/5
I will try to open the app, but it won’t let me. It starts then kicks me out. Very disappointed! 😖 hope they fix it soon, my class depends on it... for over $100, this product is so far not worth anything!
Okay I got it fixed now! 😁 for all you who may be experiencing the same thing, you need to put your course code that your instructor gives you. It won’t let you do anything without it. Maybe they can change that though since you already purchased the book. Maybe you can use the book portion of the app, and then when you get the code all the other areas open up... I do like this app now, it is very helpful in my homework assignments and quizzes 👍🏽.
I just wish that they would show the page number of each place the key word you are searching is found. I also would like to see the same search results pop back up when you click on one the try to search again. Right now, you have to type what you are searching for in again.
10” ipads only 1/5
The a app doesn’t work on my iPad Pro 9.7” and consistently states that I must use an iPad of 10” or larger. I can understand restricting screen size to something like an iPad mini. But this is ridiculous.
This app is thoughtless in its publishing and needs to be addressed so that sensible access can be granted to users.
My teacher uses this to keep track of attendance which works half the time . Polls are nice and good for in class participaron . PLEASE PLEASE make a way to delete all notifications at once . I’m tired of having to delete so many notifications .
Needs updates 1/5
Overall, the app works fine, however, when reading the ebook, the text doesn’t not appear properly. Please fix this issue so that the ebook can be read entirely!!!
App is fixed and I love it! Thank you MindTap!
I have used this service many time in the past. All of the sudden it says I have no active courses. I have two course that uses Cengage and I cannot access neither one of them.
Non working app 1/5
By Will-I-am knot
This version will not even start in iOS11
UNABLE TO COMPLETE ASSIGNMENTS ON MY MOBILE DEVICE WITH THIS MOBILE APP WOW WHY EVEN ADVERTISE THIS AS AN OPTION TO CONSUMERS YOUVE RENDERED MY ENTIRE PRODUCT WORTHLESS AND HAVE COMPLICATED MY SCHOOL WORK YOU PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR AN “EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE PROVIDER”
White Screen 1/5
In past courses I used this App & loved it because I could read the book during downtime wherever I was. Now I download my book over & over & over again......nothing but a white screen. Now the App is useless to me 😕
WORST APP! 1/5
I have to say this is the worst app. I have ever utilized for school. The process just to download the app was long, but didn’t mind it thinking it would be beneficial. When using the app, It works just fine going through the book, but in order to get to all my activities I have to log in through my web browser? So then why download the app? This is seriously so frustrating just DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GARBAGE!
Worst App ever 1/5
The only reason I even gave this app the one star is because I can’t post this review without any rating. This app is truly a waste of space. You’d think they have some useful features in the app considering how much students are charged for the access code. Extremely frustrating how the app crashes, freezes, and we are unable to access and complete activities.
App is not working 1/5
The app opens then closes out. It won’t let you access the app on my iPhone. Please help
Crashes on login 1/5
This was a complete waste of time. Considering how buggy and obnoxious the web-based ebook viewer was, I imagined this might help. Sadly I was mistaken. Looking forward to never having to buy or use Cengage ebooks again—come on people, it isn’t that hard to make a functional ebook.
App won’t open 1/5
I downloaded the app to read my textbook from, but I can’t get anywhere in the app, because every time I open it, it just exits the app immediately after I open it. I’ve tried different things to prevent it... nothing has worked so far.
Needs a ton of work!! 1/5
By ^w^ teddy
I cant’t even open the app, it keeps closing on me. I login and it kicks me out. I open it again and hit continue and again it kicks me out!! Now I try to just get in the app and it’s a continual of kicking me out!! Not worth it!!
Crashes at Opening 1/5
Useless app for overpriced material 1/5
Was force to purchase mindtap for a course. When I attempt to log into the course via Safari it says not supported. When I attempt to use the app it says there is no course.
Can’t even launch app after login. Keeps force closing. 1/5
Please fix. Your PR Rep at my school touts about this app. Why? It does not even work.
App is buggy 1/5
I’ve downloaded the app 3 times and it will stay open for about 5 seconds before closing itself. Very frustrating
App quits whenever I open it and I cant even use my textbook I bought off of their main website because the code has been used and they offer little to no help fixing that, whole company is trash
Book doesn’t open. Can’t view material. 1/5
When I download the e-book and try to open the book, it goes to a blank white page and makes the app useless. Once I relaunch the app, I have to once again downloaded the e-book ONLY to have the same problem happen again. All this app achieves therefore is wasting data by downloading a book over and over again only to never access the actual content within the book.
This app glitches and cancels out of the app every single time I click it. I hate this app but it is mandatory for me to have it for one of my classes so I would LOVE if you guys would gee idk maybe fix it?? I’ve been reading a lot of reviews on here and this app has had problems like this since last year? 0/10 app
Terrible.... cant open the app
Great for reading chapters on the go. 4/5
By Bennett Dryden
I work an average of 48 a week with kids, and community involvement. This app has significantly dropped the hours require to be by a computer. I can read all the chapters I need to from my phone and be ready to knock out homework when I get to my PC.
The only two things that are distracting is the top bar that continually appears and disappears when scrolling through material, I would rather it just be locked on. And I also wish I could access my homework modules as well as the videos. Other than that, it is what you make of it.
App crashes constantly 1/5
Unable to use, it constantly closes.
Pretty great! 4/5
This app is great for reading the textbook, and it even has audio option. My only grievance is that the audio is very robotic, and the options for changing the voice are very limited.
Closes every time I open!!! 1/5
I bought the bundle from the website to include the app... it’s worthless if I cannot use it!!!
Needs improvement 1/5
Downloaded this app yesterday for my Spanish class and it opens, quickly shows a white screen, then crashes... every time I open it.
Crashes immediately 1/5
The app loads and crashes by the time it shows the word ‘Courses’
Keeps crashing 2/5
By War Eagle To The World
It keeps crashing when I try to open the app?
Reading feature doesn’t work 1/5
By G. Maye
I downloaded this app so I could read my textbook on the go but it doesn’t work. The book is 884MB and once the progress bar reached that point, IT KEPT GOING it got to 916MB before I just closed the app. I’ve also downloaded the app on my iPad in hopes of a better experience but the same thing happened. Hopefully this issue gets fixed sooner rather than later.
Only good for electronic text book and seeing grades 2/5
Doesn’t support activities or quizzes, so no real point to this app when you can do the same thing on the website.
I’m taking a World Religions class and this makes it easier to do the reading so I don’t have to use my laptop.
I can just use the app on my phone.
It’d be nice if I could take the quizzes in the app though.
Big deal 4/5
By Wirld Wide Will
This system works well, once the complex setup is completed. I like the analytics but a rewrite is needed without Flash.
I did learn a lot and improved my grades.
Thank You !!
Great to use when you're on the go! 5/5
I use the app to read my book all the time. Or, I have the app read the book to me while I'm on the treadmill. Works really well.
Freezes and can't see screen. 3/5
By EMG grannie
I downloaded the app to view my book at my convenience, but it freezes sometimes and I am unable to see the entire screen sometimes.
Good study tools 4/5
By A Her.....
I used Mind Tap mobile to study for my foundations of health and wellness class and it was great! I wish you could test yourself on the vocabulary instead of just going through it and maybe some short answer would make it more challenging, but for health it was great.
Great App 5/5
By Day Ellington
This app was great from the start of the semester until finals week. I could read the chapters from my phone and now I’m using it for finals prep. The study guide has flash cards and practice test, that have made refreshing for the final easy, all from my phone.
A must have to a higher grade 5/5
This app is user friendly. Using it has improved my grades.
Very frustrating to use. 1/5
I’ve downloaded the book at least 10 times and every time I try to open it up to read I get a blank screen.
Do not use if you do your homework on your phone 1/5
Honestly I downloaded this app because I currently do not have internet access at my house. Since I’m constantly on the go I figured this would be similar to the smartbook app. I have only used this app to read one chapter out of the book. Although it does have all my coursework there, it is not accessible what so ever. In reality I feel like this app is useless and should be deleted if not updated. Take some pointers from smartbook by McGraw-Hill education. There app is superb and actually does as it says it does.
It is helpful to catch up on reading, when you are on the go. Wish we could do homework too.
By isucc pinacolada
It really taps my mind
Can not view material 3/5
I downloaded the help in hopes of accessing the book to read during work. I have downloaded the book 3 times now and still pulls up a white screen every single time. I can access the chapters and descriptions but when it takes me to the book I get a white screen or error message saying book not found. Running the most up to date IOS system. No problem accessing from safari or my laptop but cannot access from the app. Seems like a recurring issue from the developer as previous reviews state the same issue.
Update: Took me 5 times to download the book before it finally worked. Not a good first start for the app but will utilize and comment again once class is completed.
Great app! Makes it easy to read my textbook on the go! However, 4 stars for not being able to do activities in the app
needs a much better interface 1/5
the web version works great! i can select the section i want or read. the app is just a never ending scroll...
Great Help 5/5
By Mountain water
Having a Mobil app has been a huge help with being in ministry, working, and taking classes.
Unable to do any activities 1/5
I have an online class that requires this program to do assignments and it doesn’t even work. Every time I try to open any kind of activities it says “This preview of Mobile MindTap runs on a 10” iPad, using mobile Safari with iOS 6.0.1. Update your operating system to iOS 6.0.1 or higher to preview MindTap on this device.”, but I’m running iOS 11.0.1. I’ve run it on my iPad on Safari and Chrome with the same message when I’m on my iPad.
