Probably one of the worst ereaders. It’s clunky, slow, and hard to navigate through different pages.
I’ve been using the etextbooks for about 2 years now and they have been working great up until recently. I am able to use all of the functions on my iPhone but for whatever reason those functions seem to be disabled on my iPad. Chegg’s help guide aren’t very helpful and some of the information on there is false. Will probably seek an alternative next semester.
Overall, it works and gets the job done, sparing me from carrying heavy books. But I find myself constantly aggravated by this app’s thoughtless set up. A few of many issues: - Why does it take so many clicks to highlight text and switch colors - IF you even hit the right location you want to mark precisely enough the first attempt? - no handwriting notes, on a tablet interface? Who wants to constantly switch iPad position between reading/highlighting and typing clumsily on the iPad keyboard? Handwriting also helps with information retention better than typing - the side panel should show you all chapters and sub chapters for easy navigation. Why make me navigate in and out of each section trying to find the chapter I’m looking for? Feels like whoever designed this app hasn’t actually tried using it.
Use socratic your way better off
If you get a textbook with equations, the eReader seems to not be able to show them properly.
Good app and no bugs so far. I like that it can be used offline. Love that I can take my studying with me.
When I downloaded both the book and app I was expecting that the same notes and highlights would appear on my phone because it’s the same account, but sadly that’s not the case. On top of that once I did link my app to my account I have not been able to make anymore annotations to my reading. I have tried to find a solution but nothing pops up online so if developers can help me out that would be amazing as I think this service is awesome truely, but what I’ve stated so far ruins my experience.
Ok. I followed the instruction to “voice” selection and nothing change. I still get the female robotic voice. I ch aged to Siri male voice and nothing. There is a glitch. Fix ASAP.
Read the review title, it’s incredibly annoying when I’m trying to do homework or study with limited amounts of time and have to wait on the book to become available online again due to random issues on chegg’s end. Doesn’t do much good to have an electronic copy of a textbook if you can’t access it half of the time.
Chegg eReader as a whole is horrible ! Honestly renting the actually book is much more beneficial and easier . - The wait time is trash . You have to download the book in the app which takes forever. On the actual website it take minutes for a single page to load ! - It’s like the book is in 320p which is horrible. Even when you print the pages it has a blur to it ! - No pdf function either. I understand the on-the-go books and apps but this has to be fixed before i purchase another ebook from Chegg . I’ll stick to renting physical books , it’s less strain on my eyes and don’t have to worry about a page taking 5 minutes to load. As well as waiting 30mins - Hour for the book to download in the app. Fix it Chegg ..
