Horrible for adult students that have busy lives
I rely on etextbooks because with kindle and other PDFs I can have my phone read the pages aloud to me while I am cooking, cleaning, commuting and managing my family. Moreover, I have issues with my eyes where I cannot stare at screens for long periods of time so I reserve screen times for when I have papers and online research. I can understand not allowing copy and pasting for copyright reasons but spoken screen and spoken content with iOS does not work at all for this app which is absolutely absurd. Why would you prevent people that can’t see digital content very well from being able to have the content read to them?!?! If I were any more blind than I currently am I would not be able to use this app at all so those with vision impairment should STAY AWAY!! The “highlight and speak” feature worked the first day I tried this app and has not worked since, a feature that is also poor because you cannot pause long segments so you have to highlight very short segments at a time (which is extremely inconvenient when driving). Since that KY worked one time I have deleted and redownload this app 5 times and it still dies not work. I hope professors in the future will stay away from McGraw Hill products all together because the snout of money paid for this textbook and the lack of accessibility is absolutely outrageous.
Works well & needs more functionality
Seems to do the minimal of what’s needed. Download for offline use, highlight text, underlines text (wish you could choose the color for underlining!...just does black, so it’s difficult to tell if you did it or if it came with book), and add text-notes to specific words/phrases that you highlight. However, this app could be MUCH more dynamic.
Functionality that would give this app a 5 star:
-The ability to write/draw with finger/stylus!
-add text boxes so we can fill white sides next to e-book text
-Highlight ability simply by sliding finger over desired text (like iBook)
If we are required to use an e-book for our courses, then McGraw Hill apps should give us close to the same functionality as a real/physical book.
I want to be able to make “mark-up” additions to the e-book like I can in iBooks (iOS is capable of these functions; please make this app capable as well).
I want to be able to draw arrows between paragraphs, and I want to add in text boxes that overlay onto white spaces near book text.
Most especially with Chem books, there are a lot of equations, and in my mind, I need to draw connections between what the text is saying and how the equation is manipulated to answer the question.
Since more effective learning is the main goal of this publisher, please make this app more dynamic and give us more functions than physical books could ever give us =)
So far, pretty good
Great design, great functionality.
So easy to navigate between sections, highlight important bits, and browse my highlights/bookmarks.
I'm honestly surprised: my desktop browser experience with all things Connect related is often a miserable one, but this is something else.
Update2: developers reached out to me, thanks for that! Here are more details on the issue I had, hope this helps:
--the textbook is called "Ross, Corporate Finance: Core Principles and Applications, 5e (ebook)".
--I had downloaded it in its entirety for offline use through this app
--I was connected to wifi at the time.
--iPad Air 1, 16GB, iOS 10.0.2.
--The error message appeared in brackets, with red colored, italicized, regular sized font: "[Math Processing Error]".
--At the time, I was reading about financial ratios in Chapter 3, and the error message had replaced every instance of math equations.
--I removed and reinstalled the app, restarted my iPad, and have not seen the error message since then.
I have, however, noticed a second issue: throughout the book, there seems to small red "broken image icons". Let me know if there's a way I can send you screenshots of this.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for taking the time to review our app and explaining the issue you'd seen. We are sorry you've encountered a problem with the math equations in your book and would like to resolve it immediately. Would you mind updating your review to provide the title of the book where you are seeing this issue? We are trying hard to reproduce it so we can fix this issue.
