ReadAnywhere app reviews
Im not sure why universities make students use these online "tools" for certain classes...
Normally theyre buggy, have too much going on, UI is annoying to figure out, things are hidden all over the place...
Im not sure why they cannot just offer a standard PDF version of textbooks instead of the obnoxious "interactive textbooks"
So i normally just try to copy & paste into a word doc and make my own pdf to read and reference to. Best solution so far.
Self Reading 3/5
It would be great if this had a feature that allowed you to select where you wanted it to start reading from by tapping on the location and then hitting a play button. VitalSource has a feature like this and it is very beneficial for those of us that also learn and retain information through audio.
Good but... 4/5

I am using this for my freshman year chemistry class and I like it so far! I just wish that you could do practice problems on the app like you can online.
Can’t login 1/5
Using this app on the iPad Air 2. I was logged out when I updated the app. Now I can’t log back in; I keep getting “wrong email or password” error even though all of my information is correct. Currently, I can only read through the desktop version.
So far, pretty good 4/5
Great design, great functionality.
So easy to navigate between sections, highlight important bits, and browse my highlights/bookmarks.
I'm honestly surprised: my desktop browser experience with all things Connect related is often a miserable one, but this is something else.
Update2: developers reached out to me, thanks for that! Here are more details on the issue I had, hope this helps:
--the textbook is called "Ross, Corporate Finance: Core Principles and Applications, 5e (ebook)".
--I had downloaded it in its entirety for offline use through this app
--I was connected to wifi at the time.
--iPad Air 1, 16GB, iOS 10.0.2.
--The error message appeared in brackets, with red colored, italicized, regular sized font: "[Math Processing Error]".
--At the time, I was reading about financial ratios in Chapter 3, and the error message had replaced every instance of math equations.
--I removed and reinstalled the app, restarted my iPad, and have not seen the error message since then.
I have, however, noticed a second issue: throughout the book, there seems to small red "broken image icons". Let me know if there's a way I can send you screenshots of this.
First week 5/5
So far very smooth, functionality 100% and no speed issues loading. Effective and efficient. It will be a useful app, formatting of pages transitions well.
