Cannot sign in
I was attempting to compare Thieme Bookshelf to iPublishCentral Reader as they both are associated with Thieme E-Book Library. I can gain access to iPublishCentral but Thieme Bookshelf won't allow me access, saying I have an invalid username/password. There is no field in the app to "reset" it and I did attempt to troubleshoot the problem by resetting my account password via my PC. Customer service also seems to be lacking- there is no email to reach out for help and Thieme Bookshelf "support" link brings you to the iPublishCentral downloading instructions on their main page.
Won’t accept password
Terrible experience with Thieme ebooks. My credential doesn’t work on app even though it is taken on Thieme website. There is no place to request a new password. You have to email them. Good luck if they answer you.
Beautiful pictures - search fxn doesn't work
I love the Thieme books and this ebook was just what I was looking for. The way it works is the app is free, but then you need to buy books to fill the shelves.
Two major problems though:
1) It takes 6 minutes (I timed it on multiple bandwidths) to load the book I purchased through the Bookshelf app. If I loaded it recently, I can return to it without reloading it, but if too much time has passed, I have to sit there while it loads again. And, of course, you can't switch apps while you're waiting.
2) THE SEARCH FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK! I paid $50-60 for an ebook, and the search function doesn't work?! Unacceptable. (Note: The books are also accessible online, and the search function does work that way.)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
