This app keeps malfunctioning 5/5
Las quarter I use the app for ten weeks and it worked fine. Now I downloaded a new book and it won’t download any chapters it keep giving me an error. I’m frustrated because I am depending on this app to avoid carrying my book for school everywhere. Other than this issue the app is great. I just wish it would work as normal . I’m not sure why I cannot download the chapters that I select. Hopefully the developer will read my review and do something. This app is definitely useful when it works right. I deleted the application twice and download it each time to get it to work accordingly.
Life saver 5/5
The best app ever it is a life saver
Where’s my books? 3/5
I am taking two courses this semester that both require connect and e-textbooks, however I am only allowed to view one book. I absolutely feel like I should be able to access both books.
Great Tool 5/5
By Sofia Gazyeva
This amazing app has an option where you could highlight text, and it will be read to you!
This app is really easy/simple to use, convenient, and just awesome!
Love it 5/5
This makes studying whenever I get a second super easy!
I wish I would of found this app sooner! I’m in the RN program and this app is so useful to me!
Great mobility. Slow at times, 4/5
I love the ability to read my text book on my phone wherever I am. It does seem a bit slow at times while navigating but is great 95% of the time. I wish the chapter navigation tool had a bit more differentiation between primary subjects and paragraph subjects. Another tool that would be great would allow me to use something like a back button to go to my previously read space before clicking a link
I can download the chapter I need to review and read at my convenience. So much easier and cheaper than lugging around my books to and from class, work, etc.
Needs improvement 3/5
By Luna ea
The app and ability to read the book is good however you can not copy any part of the material and this makes it very cumbersome if there is a need for a citation. Please improve this feature.
Almost impossible to use 1/5
A) Was any quality control in place when the software was created?! B) I really like how a user can not submit a one star review. When prompted for a nickname, the only message one receives is “name taken”. Very creative!!!!
About this app 3/5
This would be a five star app it it had audio with it like bookshelf does. Audio would be a BIG plus
Needs work 1/5
Does the bare minimum of what it should. Cant see page numbers and impossible to use portrait mode.
Books not found 1/5
There is no reason why ebooks are not be available in this app. Chegg and, dare I say, Cengage get it right, but not McGraw-Hill. This app is a waste of time and space.
Essentially Useless 1/5
By Zac Tobey
Useful if all you need to do for class is read the book. Useless if you need to do book assignments or reading assignments since the app is not yet able to support that.
Another awful app from MH”E”
Fix the Scrollable Tables 2/5
Developers - HEY! Devs! I have a simple request. In those boxes where you put tables that you have cleverly made scrollable - so they fit on any screen of any orientation, there is 1 super huge problem. The row names get scrolled out.
How can I keep track of the numbers I am looking at if the labels are always off the screen?
I like that I can slide through the data L to R, but when I have 15 rows of info, it makes it tough to absorb stuff when I have to keep going back and figuring out what each number is.
It needs work 2/5
The main reason I got the app was so that I could listen to the book. But for some reason I can’t get it to read to me.
Productive learning experience 5/5
By The Original Jakester
The app has helped me with my efficiency when I study. While I prefer physical books, the Smartbook functionality is a learning tool I use. The reading experience is a good. There is a lot more that could be done with the app.
Great for reading on the go! 5/5
Great for reading on the go!!
Its ok 2/5
It works well but it won't update my purchased book so I have to remove it.
Book wasn’t on it 1/5
Waste of time.
Fast and perfect! 5/5
I can read all my homework from here. It has a search bar which is fantastic! It’s fast and reliable! By far the best app by McGraw Hill!
Could use minor improvement 4/5
Would be nice to have the app force the display to stay on. There’s other apps that do this and it would be nice not to have to change the main setting to never lock the device.
Why is search by key words disabled in an etextbook??? 1/5
I am using Saladin anatomy and physiology 8e and a while ago with the new updates the textbook is not longer be able to search by key words. This was the most valuable function in the old version. I don’t understand why you guys keep making it so user unfriendly. Disabling this feature makes reading the textbook so much annoying.
Very disappointing. Please let us search by key words.
By Manuel Bee
Gotta say the newest update really made the app useable. Before it use to be really slow and the user interface was very lengthy, slow, and laggy to get through. New ui looks great and it’s fast. Also downloads the chapters fast unlike before.
not good 1/5
deletes downloaded chapters randomly every other day. takes forever to download a chapter even with strong internet connection. doesnt download images in the chapter, i have to connect to internet to view those.
0 stars 1/5
I pay all of this money for acess codes and I can't even get a functional app. This app is complete trash and does not even work. I can't download or read any of my books on my phone. This app just takes up space.
Update messed it up. 2/5
I can’t scroll down to my next section, and the answers for the mastering concepts will no longer pop up.
bothered by your app 1/5
By ffuucckk this app
this app is highly annoying, on some chapters i can highligh material and on others i cannot. this has happened a lot lateley. i might as well should have bought the book. this resource is trash. not reliable at all. save the trouble and by the book. this app will never work when you need it to.
pages wont turn
when ever you select something to have it read out, the option will not even show.
some chapters are downloaded but are really downloaded.
again this app is trashhhhhhhhhhhh
Great App 2/5
The only thing is that the update removed the highlighting when you use the search option. Now I can’t see where the text is that I searched for, it just gives me the whole page.
Not Convenient 1/5
By CA reviews1
This is honestly the worst app ever. I bought the ebook, so I could read on my iPad. It doesn’t let you go to the next page by scrolling, you have to go back to the chapter and look up the next section. The key terms at the end of the chapter don’t work. You can see the terms, but not the definition. Don’t buy if you need convenience.
The links to jump back and forth in the content don’t work, and you can’t zoom out of the page. None of the highlights from my online textbook show up in app either. Disappointed!
Nice option for reading textbooks. Was 5 star before the update made it so you can’t simply scroll to the next topic. Now you have to click on the Table of Contents and manually select the next topic if you are at the end of a section. Why would that change? It’s clunky, irritating and, non-intuitive. The app was awesome before the update.
Works ok 3/5
Allows me to access the book easily, however the contents could be updated to reflect individual chapters. I hate having to scroll through the entire menu just to find what chapter I need.
By Modern Moderate
The mobile version of this app is absolutely terrible. It is impossible to multitask or leave the page without the app resetting.
Love app. Change theme. 4/5
I would really appreciate being able to change the wording/theme. A black background with white letters are so much easier to read especially for a long time.
Horrible App 1/5
I literally have to download my chapters every time that I use this app. I can’t search for anything. It always freezes, goes black and force closes itself. Just a terrible app.
After paying for the eBook I needed, I received a notice from McGraw Hill that I could download the ReadAnywhere app so I could download the eBook and read it offline on my mobile device. However, after I downloaded the App and logged in using my username and password, it said “You do not have any titles in your Library.” I called McGraw Hill to find out how I can get the eBook I paid for to download to the ReadAnywhere App, but they informed me that particular book is not available on the ReadAnywhere App. So why did they send a message to me and tell me to download the App? Did McGraw Hill just want me to download the App to increase their numbers? Thanks for wasting my time!!!
No library, no way to add to it 1/5
I put in my correct login information only to be shown I have nothing in my library (false, I'm doing homework on my computer at the moment) there is no way to even add one
Not Good 1/5
By EMS CLEVELAND
Using Connect on my phone to look at the textbook. It asks if I want to download it to the app I click yes. The app say I don’t have access to the book. That weird lm looking at the book online
It doesn’t allow me to login! 1/5
I am able to login on connect website, but the same username and password don’t work here. Very frustrated
“Read anywhere” but only if you are rich with internet 1/5
The title of the application is a false advertisement. Get a hard copy and tell your teacher why her class is back by the upper echelon of bureaucratic society. internet is required to read “anywhere “ BUT when you need it. So make sure you are a rich collage student if you need this application. It total trash and I feel pity for others that require it.
I feel like the zealots are winning the battleground of education and we are the subjects of the lost and financially raped Society of students. So haul and salute to the masters of our Financial demise. My wallet is raped thank you for Subjugating your required trash material upon educated opportunists and thank you Apple for sponsoring trash applications. I am fully disappointed in the representation of your product and do not trust your brand or label or whatever legal bull you feel to call your self.
Where is my book? 1/5
I've logged in, and it says I have no books in my library. I should have a business law book by Kubisek, NADA. And deleting the app and re-downloading it hasn't helped at all. This is a crap app by a crap, bloodsucking company. I hate all these education "tools". They're not tools, they are buggy, glitched programs that barely function. Heads up, McGraw: NO ONE LIKES USING YOUR PRODUCTS.
Audio capability 2/5
Would there be anyway to enhance this app to be able to make audio reading easier. Instead of highlighting the text and pressing the speaker to read. Maybe an option to play by chapter. I downloaded this because I thought it was set up that way and would work well when my hands aren’t free and I can listen to the book instead. If that is possible this will be truly an amazing app. But until then it’s hard to use.
Doesn’t help when I’m driving and want to hear as I drive a lot with my job. It won’t play over my car just through headphone or out of phone itself.
Great E-Reader 4/5
Great e-reader, so far it has worked flawlessly for my digital text books. However it is pretty basic (you can’t mark-up or annotate directly on the pages, but highlighting, underlining, bookmarks, and definitions are still available with a simple tap) I’m not sure why there are so many negative reviews... my professor made this application a direct requirement for the course and I’m glad he did.
Error downloading 1/5
App always gives me error messages when downloading.
Read nowhere 1/5
By Meh Not Impressed
After spending half an hour on the phone with technical support. I can’t even log in, even though it works on browser and connect. Now the issue has been forwarded to engineering. Not off to a great start. Read anywhere app is currently read nowhere for me... do I have to give it even one star?
Consistently loses data 1/5
By Herb the brew
I could deal with my place being lost but this frequently loses the ability to highlight and has more than once purged chapters of highlights with no recovery options. Pure garbage.
App is ok when it works 1/5
By Dave S L 10
I just recently started using this app and it has already made my book unable to access multiple times. Every time I go in to access the book it states that “there is nothing here” and that “you have no titles in your library”. There is also no place to enter the book code, nothing. Deleted and downloaded again, nothing. If it did work they could improve this app by having an audio book option.
