Better to Use ADE
I recently purchased an e-book I needed for an essay at university- first time I’ve done this.
Before I bag the app, I will commend the Dymocks staff for their help. I can’t speak for others but they replied to my email a couple days later (my ebook originally didn’t appear in the library) and a tech guy helped me set it up with another e reader (ADE). This was all very well done.
However, the dymocks e reader itself is less than functional from my experience and honestly it’s probably more worthwhile using ADE (Adobe Digital Edition). The reason the ebook may not appear in the library is because the ebook may not be transferred after purchase in the first place (which was what happened to me). This can hopefully be rectified by emailing the staff.
However, I honestly think Dymocks should provide a functional app. This app has their brand name in it and it can be very frustrating for some people. Even with their help, I still had had issues with ADE because of authorisation or whatever. The app crashed within ten seconds once my ebook was in the library- I didn’t download it cause I knew it wouldn’t work.
It has been a frustrating process and it does make me reluctant to purchase an ebook from them again- should it be this frustrating. Luckily, my experience with their assistance was great but unfortunately the app isn’t up to par.
Do not expect great results from this.
No issues for me
Purchased an eBook online downloaded and logged into the app and was able to read my book without any issues.
My only critique was there was no facility to lookup a word like there is in other popular ereaders. That would be an amazing addition to the app. Couldn’t highlight text either. Bit limited in functionality whilst reading but I had no problems finding the book I’d purchased or reading it.
Better now I think?
I only just downloaded it but freaked out when I read the reviews as I had already bought the books. Though the reviews are old so just leaving a note, I’ve had no issue. I downloaded the app, logged in, my purchased books (15 mins prior) where listed, I pressed the download button, they downloaded quickly and I have been able to open and navigate through them all. Should do the job just fine.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
