Inconsistent and Inconvenient

As far as being able to see words on a screen it does that job really well. However, as being a replacement for a book. It is terrible. Taking notes is impossible if you plan to do so without paper. You can not take notes on screen without having to switch to a note taking app, you’re limited to amount of pages you can print(two at a time.... I did PURCHASE the ebook right?), taking notes using what’s available in app is not ideal for me, I tried using ebook on a surface and iPad. Let me tell you, not being able to use the pens for their respective devices is really really bothersome especially since I was ideally forced to purchase the ebook from chegg or pay over $100 more from amazon(ridiculous right). Im a college student of course I am most likely to take the cheapest option. But if I could do it all over again I would pay the extra money to be able to use a different eReader than the one chegg offers. Being unable to utilize my iPads feature is a disappointment. I have spoken with my classmates also and several feel similar about this.

Not Enough Functionality

I have only been using this app for a couple of days, but there is already a couple of things that I think need improved that keep it from being a good app.
The nice thing about the app is that it makes carrying multiple textbooks much more bearable throughout the day and is really nice to study when you have only a little time between classes. The other obvious plus is the price break on the ebook compared to traditional textbooks.
What I really don’t like about the app almost outweighs the good though!
1.) There is no support for the Apple Pencil on the iPad. This makes it very cumbersome for annotating and highlighting sections of the book while reading. This is my main grip! If it wasn’t for this it would be a much better app. I didn’t spend over $1000 on an iPad Pro to be tied to a keyboard!
2.) It seems that you cannot change the name of book marks after you select one. It just gives the generic name of the chapter and page, but this is unhelpful for finding exactly what you’re looking for or what you book marked.
3.) The read to text function could be really awesome, but it sounds very digital. The app says you change the voice and directs you to settings, but after you change the voice for the iPad in the settings it doesn’t actually take effect within the app and continues using the same robotic voice.

Printing these pages is eating through my pockets!

I like ereader Chegg for the simple fact the price for an e-book was much less on chegg online, than renting a physical copy. HOWEVER, it’s now a catch 22 because I honestly prefer a physical book:
-ease of highlighting
-less strain on the eyes
-physical pages to turn (especially when taking open book tests)
Just without the physical price (school textbooks are expensive af!).

So I decided to print the chapters from my current text book: The Policy Based Profession (6th Edition). This has been a headache because:
1) I feel like I’m having to buy ink weekly!
2) i feel like I’ve having to buy sam’s club size packets of print paper
3) the publisher only allows you to print out TWO pages at a time, which means one page could very well have only THREE sentences on it, which is a complete waste of paper.

I’m hoping this can be fixed. If not then I’ll just go back to physical books and pay the extra money on the front end to rent, so I’m not having to pay extra money on the back end and wasting resources to print e-book pages because just like books aren’t cheap, neither are printer ink and paper!
