Only a necessity for school! Only downloaded this for Ashford University but force closes every time I copy something. Sucks

Way to laggy I wanted to use this on my tablet instead of my laptop, but this is way to laggy. The books are downloaded to my tablet and they still take forever to load a page. I guess I will just stick with my laptop. It's usable but if you want something that's snappy look somewhere else.

The Ap doesn't work like advertised. Does not share your location in the book between platforms. I switch between reading on my HTC One phone and my PC but always have to find where I left off on the Ap but works on the website. Definite bugs that need to be addressed to be considered a useful ap.
