This app keeps malfunctioning
Las quarter I use the app for ten weeks and it worked fine. Now I downloaded a new book and it won’t download any chapters it keep giving me an error. I’m frustrated because I am depending on this app to avoid carrying my book for school everywhere. Other than this issue the app is great. I just wish it would work as normal . I’m not sure why I cannot download the chapters that I select. Hopefully the developer will read my review and do something. This app is definitely useful when it works right. I deleted the application twice and download it each time to get it to work accordingly.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review. We would like to understand your experience better and help you get it resolved ASAP. Could you please contact support at https://www.mheducation.com/highered/home-guest.html and reference this review so we can work with you?
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.
