Very impressed with Snapplify and the support!!

I downloaded the Snapplify app onto my iPad last year when I desperately needed a textbook for my daughter. The download happened immediately after I had purchased the book and was immediately available in my library. It's excellent for viewing. I recently needed to purchase another ebook for exam revision this year but was having problems accessing the library. I pressed the chat button and was immediately contacted by someone (was very surprised by this quick response as its the weekend). The support staff was very quick and efficiently sorted my problem in less than 5 minutes. I instantly got access to my library - the problem was that I was logging in incorrectly and he was able to identify the issue immediately. My daughter is now revising and catching up. Thank you. I will recommend Snapplify to my family and colleagues! Great sleek app!

Most helpful app and support

I use the Snapplify app on my ipad (old model) for all my schoolbooks. I use these books everyday and download several books during a school term. I once had an issue with downloading a newly purchased book - I've sent an e-mail (after-hours) to support and it was fixed in less than 10 minutes. They made my day as I urgently needed access to the book. Thank you Snapplify support for your outstanding support and easy to use app

I am not enjoying this

The app is confusing. The whole set up is not practical. For example the library will be empty even if you have supposedly downloaded books or added them to your library. The Snapplify reader doesn’t exist. I follow the prompts and the my phone says that the app already exist in my phone and that I should open it. I open the app and it’s the normal Snapplify. The little chat assistant box keeps asking for my name—- I have already logged into my account do I have to repeat my name every single time. I don’t know how the engage platform works.

Everything is mixed up.
A Suggestion.

•When logging into the account could the app remember the logging details.
•Can the library and downloaded book be visible on the the users profile page
•when filling out the log in details please include (Grade, school(optional), subjects the student does in school. - this would simplify the use of the app and decrease the search time trying to find relevant books.

As a student I am in distress with the loss of time I should be spending in school. This app is highly recommended and during this time of uncertainty due to covid-19. The app may have allowed free access to books but is adding more stress to an already stressful time.
