Excellent resource but tweaks needed

Really good resource - saves me lugging several textbooks around! It would be good to be able to save some text books as "favourites" rather than search catalogue every time. Fingerprint/passcode login please!!
Also an issue when selecting to search a topic within a textbook it still searches the entire catalogue.

Terribly Frustrating !

Honestly the most frustrating, terrible app I have ever encountered! I downloaded this app thinking it would be a great to access textbooks / articles on the wards at hospital.

The app continually directs to the website version and after many hours on the “helpline” trying to set up the account I gave up. If you want to waste hours of your life please download this immediately...
