In the news:

“Putting textbooks on tablets solves a number of traditional problems. The two most obvious are saving money and back pain.”

“After Inkling made its public debut more than two years ago, It quickly became known as the startup that made super well-designed interactive college textbooks for the iPad.”

“Better than just reproducing text in an online setting, Inkling makes educational text interactive, supporting note-taking, social discussion of content and internal search (like Google for your textbook!).”

“A new company called Inkling hopes to break the standard textbook model and help textbooks enter the interactive age by letting students share and comment on the texts and interact with fellow students.”

Horrible functionality - developers ignore my complaints

The previous reviews sum it up. When I first got the app a few years ago, it was great. It has beautiful presentation of books with images and videos. However, there is now many problems. When you click on a picture, it takes you back to the beginning of a section, instead of where you left off. The videos must be scrolled through the entire library instead of clicking in from the contents. On my Ipad sometimes I can’t even click into the images. I paid over 300 dollars for a medical textbook that is difficult to use. I could have gotten it cheaper on IBooks or Kindle. What a horrible company Inking has become! I have emailed support several times and there response is to delete the app and reload it - which I have already done many times.

So much wasted potential

The books look great and the images are crisp. Unfortunately, navigation needs drastic improvements. When you move from one section to the next while scrolling, the app randomly jumps to the top of the previous section. This gets rather infuriating when the sections are large. Additionally, finding content can be a challenge when a textbook has 150+ chapters. While that may partly be the fault of the textbook, inkling should make some effort to group the chapters. The search function can be useful at times. However, occasionally it will find less relevant results and list those first. It should prioritize the headers over references. Overall, a potentially great product limited by subpar programming.

Best way to read large textbooks but buggy

I have bulky textbooks that could only be read on a table, etc. and this app makes them very easy to read. Maintaining notes is a great plus as is searching through the books. There is also room for improvement: following a link to a table or diagram and hitting the back button takes the reader to the beginning of the chapter rather than the point of entry into the table/diagram. It would be best if the app would remember where you were before following a link. Also, subheadings in chapters take you to the wrong place in the chapter.
