Ratings and Reviews
State of the art in mobile access to journals
The world of academic publishing is restrictive and slow to change, but BrowZine makes the best of this environment. It offers as near to seamless access to your library’s subscriptions as you’ll find anywhere.
The support team is very responsive and helpful, and the product developers are proactive in proposing and making improvements.
Potential is there but UX development is slow
This app is excellent for keeping up to speed on journals that i read when paired with access granted through my institution. Also the user interface is quite past century. Not a big inconvenience but probably not for millennial reader. Competitors rely on a model that takes after other social media sites (think continuous scroll of articles curated using an algorithm) vs this app which relies on the old age phenomenon of getting a physical copy of the journal and taking your time to browse through its content. The reality is that in this day and age modern readers do not like to be tied down to journal boundaries but rather appreciate a curated list of knowledge.
It also lacks in identifying the special interests of its readers and then coming up with suggestions.
I’ve been using BrowZine for a few months, and the most recent update is great. It’s easy to use—login once and it remembers my infos, the app finds and loads PDFs quickly. I’ll keep using it for my reading!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
