Horrible Read Aloud robot voice won’t change 3/5
By Tiny but fierce
When using the ‘Read Aloud’ feature, the default voice used is a dead, robotic voice that mispronounces many words, even some of the most simple ones. When you go to settings there’s directions to change the voice in my iPhone settings. No matter what I select though, the same robot voice is used. Painful.
Selecting where you want the reader to start reading in the text is also a pain. It will start at whatever is at the top but if you missed hearing a sentence or want to relisten to a part that was just read, hit the back button will result in it jumping to the beginning of that paragraph. There is no option to back up a few seconds like in audio book apps. This results in having to search around for your place, scrolling it to the top then hitting play.
Read Aloud will read everything on the page including page numbers, photo captions and every number listed in a graph in that horrible robot voice. Makes following the main part of the text confusing with that extra info randomly thrown in. Be nice, though I don’t know if technologically possible, to have the option to exclude that superfluous detail.
I also have issues with pausing the book using the play/pause button on my headset. Sometimes it will work then other times I have to pull my phone out, unlock it, open the app and tap the pause button a time or two like it’s on a roll and doesn’t want to stop. Doesn’t matter what type of headset I use either.
It would be great if we could write on the books! 4/5
I like the reading aspects of Chegg, and that you can access the dictionary on the iPad, but it would so cool if we were able to write your notes on top of the books.
Great idea but has flaws 3/5
The app keeps closing when I use it. Overall it’s very organized and easy to use.
E-Books App Not Working 1/5
I got an E-Book but I can’t use their app. It doesn’t let me login so I have to use the web. The web doesn’t work as well either. I really hope you guys fix it or I’m gonna end up going to another company for my ebooks.
Not letting me sign in 3/5
Hi I’m writing this review is because I just recently got this app on a iOS device and was trying to sign in with using my google account but every time i tried selecting it, it would just take me back to the login page, please fix this I love using this app. I greatly recommend this to many of friends
Does not work. 1/5
I have not been able to view my book for the last 2 weeks what is the point in having an app that does not work? Have downloaded and re downloaded and no help. Anyone else have this problem?
Was working great update 1/5
The app was working great as I have several ebooks from Chegg. However now the app won’t even open. I have deleted it from all other devices and reinstalled several times. The start of the school season is not the time for the app to go down.
Several weeks later and my app is still not working! I have paid a lot of money for my ebooks. Why is this not fixed??!
Okay stop chegg 1/5
Dude you don’t need 3 apps. Just make one app with eReader, Books, and Study??
Android>apple os 2/5
Can’t seem to log in on my ipad pro. Running ipadOS so maybe it’s that but same issue with my Xr. My samsung s10+ has no issue.is anyone else having the same problem with apple devices?
Never opens 1/5
I’ve been trying to read a book all day. App stays in the sign-in screen and doesn’t load or login. I'm able to access Chegg books app but not the ereader, I will have to read it on my laptop I guess.
Things to Add 4/5
By Here for Review
If possible I would like to be able to draw on my etxt as that helps me learn. Especially in cases of science and math.
Log In Issues 1/5
Gets stuck on log in screen....never actually logs in.
This is a new issue because I used this app last month.
So far not too bad 4/5
So far iI only have one complaint, it involves the in-text quizzes. Once I select the quiz and complete, the only option is to reboot the app to leave the quiz. There is no way to return to text with close app down
Fix it please... 1/5
I’ve downloaded the app but everytime I log in it’s constantly saying its logging me in but never actually logs me in .. and no it’s not my new IPhone XS Max that’s broken it’s the app that’s broken. Fix it!
The app always closes out, and it’s beyond annoying when I’m trying to read!
App not working 1/5
This app is not working at all. I try to sign in with my correct sign in information and it stays stuck on the sign in screen. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still does not work.
It won’t load, it’s just like all the other reviews. It keeps telling me to login, but never goes off the loading screen. Disappointed & dissatisfied.
By Juan alvarado
I’ve tried logging into the app countless times for weeks and have still yet to actually log in because the app won’t load.
Don’t get it 1/5
Why do I need two apps? Also, the I cannot open the e reader. This app is not helpful, I will only use it online and delete the app
Cool but needs features 3/5
It would be nice to have the ability to use my apple pen to annotate on the pages. I can if I make an image but I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. Help me not break the law by proving this feature.
I spend more time trying to log in to the eReader than I do getting to read and study my courses. Waiting and trying to figure out why I can’t access my book is a ridiculous amount of wasted time that as a student I cannot afford to waste just like the money I spent on these books here.
beats nothing 3/5
The eReader is very mechanical and sometimes hard to understand. When it works properly it highlights each word as it’s reading it so, so long as you can read along it’s fine. But it also reads rapidly, And if your purpose of having a raider is to be able to close your eyes and listen, or worse do other chores, you may miss things from time to time.
What happened? 1/5
Y’all really need to fix this app. All of a sudden I can’t log in?? WTH! I’m a loyal customer. If I’m spending my money chegg then y’all should at least fix the App!
Can’t sign in 1/5
For some reason every time I sign in it reloads and won’t let me sign in.
Terrible on the battery 3/5
The Chegg e-reader app is a very convenient way to keep all of my books in one place and access them on the go whenever I need them. However, I think it needs a power save mode of some sort because I use it on my iPad and it drains the battery at an alarming rate. I noticed that it has no “sleep” function so if even if I leave it idle for a while, it keeps the device running.
Can’t log in 1/5
Does not let me log in! And it doesn’t make sense for me to buy a book on the main Chegg app for me to download another one to read it just for it not to work
this app is horrible! 1/5
I am unable to login to the app it once I login it just keeps acting as it is loading the next page but it’s not this app is horrible and it is a waste of time
Won’t let me sign in? 1/5
I bought an e-book last week and every time I try to use the app, it doesn’t let me sign in for some reason. I put in my credentials and it just “loads” for hours! This needs to be fixed!
Unable to log in 1/5
I rented a book for the semester to read on my iPad but I can’t log into the app. It freezes up. I can read in safari but it doesn’t save my place. Super frustrating! Should have rented my book from another source I guess. 😣
Don’t even Bother 1/5
This app is a joke. I downloaded it in hopes that I can read my nursing textbook here and I can’t even get past the log in screen. It acts as if it’s loading and then it just stays frozen on the same screen the entire time. I’ve tried logging in with face book and google only to get the same result. An error message or nothing at all. This app is terrible and I’m surprised nothing has been done about this seeing how NOONE has anything positive to say about this app. I suggest chef makes changes before promoting this junk.
Slow app 1/5
By Mike L. 💪🏽
App is slow
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Absolutely the worst app!! Just get an amazon ebook. Don’t waste your hard earned money on this app.
Literally will not download so I can see the book.
Can’t even log in 1/5
I’ve been using chef for a few years to order my books. I love the company but I hate the eReader app!!! It won’t even get past the login screen and I’m very disappointed.
Log in issues 1/5
This is the dumbest app I’ve ever seen in my life! 1/5
By Mehahahaha Lolz gessome
They have a whole separate app dedicated to reading E-books that you’ve purchased through them, and yet their main app doesn’t allow you to purchase ebooks??!?! So what’s the point of having an ebook reader if you can’t buy ebooks?!!?! Wasted an hour trying to figure out this crap app.
Keeps Freezing 1/5
I rented online textbooks and it keeps freezing on me every few minutes. It’s so irritating because I keep wanting to just read and scroll, it just doesn’t move.
By Please update and fix!
Every time I try to log in on my eReader app, it doesn’t load and just crashes. I have the app on both my phone and my iPad, and have everything up to date. I’d love to use the app on both devices instead of my laptop. Can you please make it so that when I enter my email and password, it takes me to my books?
Login issues 2/5
I purchased my ebook for the semester and now I cannot log in. It shows the loading dots for 15+ minutes. It’s extremely frustrating. I could make a new account but I purchased my book on the account I have now and there would be no way to access my book. Please update the app to fix the login issues!
App doesn’t load 1/5
By Lizzy Benjamin
Terrible! I ordered an ebook and I can’t even log into the app! It just keeps loading and doing absolutely nothing! For all this I would of just ordered a book since I can’t even access the book I need for school that I paid for. Highly disappointed
Need to Read 3/5
By Dissatisfied Dora
Please. I purchased an eBook online and I am unable to read it using your app. When I make an attempt to sign in, the screen just stays the same. I’ve used it before, it has been over a year since, and I’ve enjoyed the convenience of it. Please help a student out.
Can’t login. 1/5
I’ve used this app before with no problem but I re-downloaded it as the new school year starts and now it won’t let me get past the log in. Apparently this has been an issue for a lot of users. Hopefully they are able to fix the issue soon, as a lot of us students rely on the convenience of ebooks for classes.
Can’t get into book 1/5
The App won’t let me login even after it continually accepts my login as correct
Can’t log in 1/5
I’ve entered my email and password and it won’t log me in. I deleted the app and installed it again and it’s doing the same.
Not letting me log in 1/5
I’ve downloaded this app at least 10 times and I cannot get passed the log in page, i tried to refresh and log in again and nothing. I’m super disappointed
Doesn’t let me log in 1/5
I downloaded the app a while back and it was working perfectly fine. Now that schools back I re-downloaded the app and the app doesn’t allow me to log me in. No matter how many times I input my username and password, I will never be able to logged in and read a textbook I paid for. It looks like it’s loading but really it’s not. Not even the internet bowser is helpful with its glitches and lags. Disappointed.
Cannot login 1/5
By SP Mex
I bought an ebook so I can read it on my phone and it will not let me log in. Their help section online only allows you to choose from frequently asked questions so if your problem is not listed, good luck.
No page search bar 1/5
