I installed it n tried to read my wiley plus textbook but it was so irritating that i cant go the page i want when i had already click at the menu. It only did after i tried to slide the page which will just remain the same if i had not. It is so troublesome but i still have to use it.

Better than the web app but that's not saying much! I use this because I have to - my textbooks are on it. It's a better format than the web app which is complete crap. This app is clunky, frequently reloads for no reason which takes a long time, is awkward to page turn (takes quite the swipe too move a page) and is just generally slow and unresponsive. Unless you must use it.... Don't.
