Ratings and Reviews
Good looking app but needs improvement in performance.
Works fine till you download all the files. After opening the chapters, app crashes while changing over to scroll mode. Also app crashes while changing the settings.
Kindly fix the same for better performance.
Earnest Request : Make iPad version of this App soon.
This app must be in iPad version or else it’s just a waste for iphone. None can read long hours on very small screen of iphone but it is very helpful and handy on iPad. In fact iPad is specially made for these things by Apple. But don’t know when will our government and indian will be smart enough to be developed. NCERT, plz, make this app available to iPad if you really think a little good about we indians.
Hopping to see an iPad version of this app soon.
Stability issues and unavailabilty of iPad version.
This app is an admirable step taken forward by NCERT to provide easy and cost free access to NCERT books. However, the issues of frequent crashes of the iPhone version of the app and unavailability of iPad version is unfathomable considering the resources the Central Government has. As iPad because of its form factor is a much better device for reading, an iPad version is highly anticipated and much welcome.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
