Customer Reviews

Brilliant (5 stars)
I am speechless. This may be the best thing they could have done for the world. Give education to the palms of anyone willing to learn, with a passion to combat ignorance.

Books are only available on the iPad. I do not have an iPad so this poses a problem with the functionality of this app on my phone. Hence the low rating. Good idea. Bad demographic outreach. Please fix.

Good idea-poor execution (1 star)
Just downloaded this app. It was the one thing that had me excited about IOS 6. I am really disappointed!

The descriptions are jumbled in many cases. Some are nearly unreadable. No one bothered to go through the content and make sure that corrections to place for broken links to video, or outdated materials.

Please fix this fast Apple.
