Can’t download books
Just keeps getting worse. Now it just crashes every time I open it. Tried deleting and re-installing but always immediate crash. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? Fire every one of your engineers I agree with others that this app has a lot of issues, but the most glaring problem to me is that, even though I pay a subscription fee to access Packt Publishing materials, I cannot download books to reference them locally without a wireless connection. If you click on the download button for a book you are reading, the status indicator will just spin forever and never actually finish downloading. There is no error indication given. If I cannot download the materials for offline use, this is useless to me and I will not continue paying for access. Also troubling is that others are reporting this same behavior in their reviews and yet it still persists as a problem. To the developer: Can you fix this, and if so WHEN?
App does not work on mobile devices
I have deleted and reinstalled this application to see if that would fix. Nope. When I try and open the app, the splash screen flickers on then immediately closes. This happens on both the iPhone and iPad. It first started on my iPad, and I emailed the devs working on it, in which case they stated their app does not work on the iPad, rather only on smaller screens like the iPhone. I responded to the email that it seems odd then they would have an app available for the iPad ready for download knowing it didn’t work for it. I wonder if there will be an update to fix this issue. I would email the developers to ask, just not sure they would reply.
Additional information: it’s been over a year since your last update to this app, can you please push an update to make the app stable?
Doesn’t work on iPhone 13
So I have a Packt sub and love what I learn via the website, but the mobile app simply doesn’t load. I read the previous comments and hoped that maybe they were old comments, downloaded the app, attempted to open but it immediately closed. I attempted a couple more tries and a few other steps before I determined it was a complete waste of time. My job is not QA for Packt and I shouldn’t have to evaluate their software to make it work. I’m not getting paid and my time is valuable.
Would love to see this fixed but seems its not a priority.
