Deleting highlights

Generally, the app is fine and I enjoy having it as a reading option, but it has recently started deleting my highlights, which is very frustrating and something for which I cannot find a solution. It also glitches while reading sometimes, and will pull me to another section without warning.

This app proves why antitrust law should exist

I don’t ever leave reviews for apps, but this one is proof positive about why antitrust laws need to exist. Accessing content on it requires going on the website, and then selecting a small check box on the website, then waiting to download the whole thing, which, by the way, only happens if the app is open, so don’t switch to another app. Selecting the material is then cumbersome. West has no competition for this app and so has no incentive to make it better. If anyone at West is listening, hire a human factors engineer for your interfaces, please.

Same update description, same broken app, same one star rating.

You’d think after two years of “reading feedback” that the app would get better, but nope. We’re still having to use the same app, with a more than deserving 1.8 star rating. First step to improvement: stop the app from crashing. Second step: look into pdf formatting since .ePub doesn’t seem to be working out. OR just pull it from the App Store and forget it ever happened.
