This app has everything you need if you are going into computer coding even it’s own platform. But they lack large print books for seeing impaired. Basically this is not for handicap. With the kind of money you get from colleges you might want to be considerate of all kinds of people mot just those that can see. My money is just as green as yours.
What’s the point if you can’t do assignments on here? 2/5
I can use the online books but I can’t do assignments such as quizzes and tests? That’s not fair at all. Please update this
Good so far
Okay but can be better 4/5
The whole book works fine on my phone and all but after I got the update on my iPhone the audio stopped working. Although I don’t mind reading the audio book does come in handy.
Great App!! 5/5
I highly recommend this app. It worked great for me while I was in college.
I love this app! I didn’t have it for the first half of my class, but now I use it all the time. Highlighting is better/easier, the format is much better than on my laptop, and is just user friendlier. So thankful for it!
One usage issue 4/5
One thing that the app would be useful is that it allows you look so your assignments on it rom your phone because at the end of the day everyone has a phone.
It's okay 4/5
You can read your books on this app but can't do homework.
Love app 4/5
Only problem I have with this I wish we could keep the book a little longer after the class end at least three months after. If that was the case I would give 5 stars
Love it 5/5
Would not change a thing
Useful when I’m at work!! 5/5
By yessy wessy
So easy to just get on the app I never have any trouble.
This App helps me complete my work. I highly recommend to download this app
Needs more Acess to complete assignments! 2/5
It just shows what assignments are due in a organized fashion unlike online. But other than ebook it doesn’t offer much it lacks the assignments detail to be able to complete and submit. It needs more efficient updates.
Studying on the go made easy 5/5
By Twisted Code
I don’t know about more advanced features like assignments as I don’t really have any in the class that I downloaded this for, but viewing my textbook on my iPad Air 3 works perfectly, just as easily as using vitalSource Bookshelf for my other courses
Buggy but helpful 4/5
Downloaded this app for the first time this semester, it’s been really helpful in note taking and quick study sessions. There are a few bugs that could make this app better but worth the download.
Decent functions 4/5
By Paula the koala <3
I enjoy being able to read the ebook on my phone and being able to highlight certain sentences. I like getting notifications for my classes and seeing what homework assignments are due. However I dislike how the app doesn’t sync what I highlight or my notes when I go on desktop.
Not worth it, waste of space on your device 1/5
Probably the most useless app i’ve ever downloaded. It literally can’t open any homework assignments because “ they are not supported” by the app. It can’t even open eBooks properly. It takes you 3 tries just to open the section you want. If you just look at it wrong it doesn’t load or sends you to the complete opposite end of the blood. Just use the web version if you can. Although IOS can be finicky with how it handles Cengage. Still better than this app.
Oh wow 1/5
So y’all got Cengage for a watch but I can’t take a test on my phone ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
I got this app so I could look at the due dates for my assignments and do them on my iPad without having to bring my laptop as well. I found that this app only lets you look at due dates, do some study quizzes and flashcards and the book. It seems to me this app is kind of useless considering that I recently found out that I can actually do my assignments if I enter cengage through Safari.
No page number and very hard to scroll 1/5
I ended up renting the book for the semester because it is very hard to use the ebook. You have to scroll all the way to the sub-chapter you want because the table of contents doesn’t have hyperlinks. The page number also doesn’t show so if your professor decides to give you a page to do as homework, you’ll have to know which specific chapter it belongs to. The app itself is very slow too. If your iPad goes on sleep the ebook sort refreshes so you’ll have to scroll to the chapter you like again. I ended up bookmarking everything because it’s such a pain to scroll through everything all over again. Also doesn’t let you search the page you want. I have a calculus book so if you search for a number, different numbers on different pages will appear.
App needs an overhaul and I’ll tell you why! 1/5
As like most people that are using this app i am also a student. Here ares some things i want the developers to be aware of using this app. I think it needs an update and overhaul of the app in general. For two years nothing has changed form the app for iPads and phones. My friend previously downloaded only to be able to read the text book. Still currently you are ONLY able to read the textbooks on this app. I would much appreciate it if i could yah know watch interactive videos and take small quizzes to help forward my learning. Instead of solely read the text book (because i am not a textbook learner). However there aren’t any videos for me to be able to see. Also! Another note is that why is we can’t do any homework assignment on tablets and our phones? We should be able to do simple quizzes and assignments on our phones. As a college student my schedule is a mess and sometimes when I remember or finally find the time to do it. I don’t have my laptop/desktop with me. It would be best to make it possible for us to do homework and watch interactive videos would be able to help us better understand the learning material. I understand there are bug and stuff to this program but don’t you think there should be more done to this app? Like some homework/ application problems are also hard to do on laptops for instance i am taking an Econ class right now. It is hard to be able to draw a straight line with a mouse. It would be easy! If we used tablets/ iPads because we can accurate label and draw them out. Those are some of my thoughts on your app.
Taking note feature 5/5
The best for study
Better than expected 4/5
Ya it’s got some glitches, but for the relative price and what it offers, I’m pretty happy with Cengage. It is fairly straight forward, and I am glad the book is available as an app- so I can have it open on my iPad as I take the tests, and read the chapter on the iPad. I haven’t had issues with the software on PC or iPad. What I really appreciate is I have the tech support number and have called 3x and each time the person was really patient and able to resolve the issue.
Satisfied but sees there is room for improvement. 4/5
I like that can easily access my txt book, however I would like even more if I could access where I stopped reading on the page. I like that I can access my review test easily however I wish I could access my section reviews for the chapter, video quizzes, and my chapter test.
I paid for subscription but not able to access now 2/5
By onlne student tenzin
I paid for the Cengage unlimited edition so that I could do my online class homework’s. I didn’t have any problem accessing it during the trail period. But now I am not able to access it even though I paid the subscription before the trial period ended. I downloaded the mobile app and my course just doesn’t show in it all and so I couldn’t do my homework on my mobile e phone. My
Class assignments are timed every week and if I am not able to access the cengage online, I loose marks and my professor could drop me for low grades. My investment in this subscription is wasted.
By cengage user
Cengage is very helpful!
easy to use 4/5
Easy to use,
nice audio option
Book mark is a great feature
highlights are helpful
it’s a good resource to have especially if your always moving bc you can just take your phone, tablet or mobile out and carat up on reading anywhere you are. 👍🏽👍🏽
Cengage e-book 1/5
By Lifx do user
The dashboard is not available and I cannot access my e-book for class on this app. I have a 3-month rental and it should be available to access. Regardless of which method the book was paid access too it should be a versatile app for education utilizing the book. I can only use the book on the PC. Hope this app gets additional programming to correct this.
Awesome App!! 5/5
I wished I had downloaded it months ago because I could’ve finished my chapter readings so much faster than having to sit at my laptop and read. I can do things in the app that I cannot do through the website on my laptop such as highlight or take notes. I would never attempt an assessment or Mindtap assignments because I prefer a full screen to ensure I’m not missing key info. But to be able read the textbook while commuting has been a real joy—yep I said JOY!! 😄
For making me have to download this garbage! >:( 1/5
I just wanted to use the Cengage website on my phone but apparently now I have to use this garbage because they would not give me any other choice. They blocked the enter website except for the link to this stupid app.
Apparently the chapters are just one large block instead of the much better, smaller blocks on the website version.
I just want to be able to use the website version of Cengage. I do not want this forced upon me.
Not user friendly 2/5
By Gina Gibson
I dislike the fact that notes and highlights are not updated across all media. I view my ebook on my phone, tablet and online. I am unable to see the notes I take on my tablet when I log in anywhere else and this is really frustrating. I also don’t like that entire chapters are displayed as one continuous page on the app and you have to scroll to find your previous place every time you exit the app.
Quit forcing me to use this app 1/5
Why do I have to use this app when the mobile browser works better than this? Now I can’t use the browser since it tells me to get the app instead.
The textbook I need to access isn’t available on the app but it’s available on the website. But now I can’t access the mobile version online because it keeps pushing for me to download this.
This app is so close to being the best thing ever. If I could do the projects and activities in the app this would be incredible. It is super smooth and easy to read textbooks tho👌🏾
Long overdue 3/5
I have used this app for a few year now and one feature that seems to be missing is the ability for bookmarks to be remembered from one IOS device to the next. I often have to search for where I left off on my iPad when trying to continue viewing material on my phone.
Use your laptop 1/5
You literally can’t read the text because it scrolls up and down by itself and don’t even get me started on the glitchy text to speech. Just use it on your laptop and call it a day.
E Texts works on night, stops the next 1/5
E text works on app on night, then suddenly doesn’t work the next. What’s worse is anything I highlighted didn’t carry to website!
Totally rubbish 1/5
It does not support reading all materials purchased. Why is it so hard to get every PDF viewable in a app? On a PC the website also have problems and didn’t respond upon clicking log in, so I had to close every tab and restart the whole browser to get it working. If it weren’t required by my instructor I would have not tried to use this.
Super touch sensitive. Don’t swipe too hard or you’ll end up lost af on this app..
Does what I need it to 4/5
I’m able to read, highlight, and save notes. Only option I would like is for it to sync with the website version.
As with all of Cengage products they give you very little for a lot of money. If you are taking a language course guess what, there is no audio support in the app. You can look at the vocabulary but you will not have any idea if you are pronouncing the words correctly. Word of advice on any of their products you buy take a picture of the receipt and the access code because if anything happens they will keep your money and tell you to buy another. Especially multi semester access.
Works great for me 5/5
I love this app! I write notes by pen and paper though, and also have the books I need. So don’t always have to use the app but does come in handy on the go!
Slow and buggy 1/5
App runs extremely slow. Never keeps the same place as before, and half the time the screen only shows white.
Not bad - Out Loud Reading Issues 3/5
By Audrina Young
I enjoy working out while listening to audio books, like most college students I’m extremely pressed for time so like to multi task when I can. The mobile app is super convenient for reading books on the go, though I wish when reading the audio books aloud it would stop narrating the picture captions 🤦🏼♀️ Talk about a headache hearing that, and not to mention it’s basically just a repetitive summary over the paragraph which makes you lose focus and I dread to hear the year and illustrator or the picture caption spoken aloud! Besides that the app is fine and works great, eventually hope you guys add the ability to take mindtap quizzes but that part isn’t so much important to me.
By The bees' knees
Terrible layout and UI. Clunky as hell.
Everything necessary is unsupported 2/5
What’s the point when everything you try to do says it’s not supported at this time??? I have a book. I don’t just need a reader. I need to be able to access and take the test,reviews, etc. this was a waste
Worst Product 1/5
By Adel Rod40
My school uses Cengage and the MindTap product for some of its courses. In 3 years of high education this is the worst product for a college I’ve ever experienced. One week complete all assignments next week they show up as not completed with no explanation. If you have work due on Sunday and need technical assistance. Good luck because tech support shows up at 6 pm. I’ve even completed a survey to get a manager to call me. Never heard from anyone. Not user friendly, difficult to get answers and support. I’m praying my college switches to something different and fast.
Wish all my classes used this! 5/5
Most likely due to the current library content but if the professors or whoever’s in charge used this more I’d get better grades. The highlight tool, picking up where I left off, list goes on frfr
This app is awful 1/5
When I select a section to read it often jumps to another part of the chapter I’m looking at. The same thing happens when I search the textbook and select a result from the list. Makes it barely hard to study!
