Customer Reviews

  • I'm confused now

    by Dibbgoogs655

    I am at the title page and am trying to buy the e-books for my clinical course work and I cannot search by ISBN.

  • Thanks

    by PathMax

    Thanks, please keep improving it.

  • Go to hell Elsevier

    by medcat

    Greedy people. You guys have absolutely no respect for the progression of science. I am so sorry for you.

  • Bad app

    by Dragor1992

    For a company that charges so much for their books, you think they would make a decent app. I tried to login and it kept saying invalid user credentials. So i could sign-up as a new user, but then i'd have to spend another $600 on access code, but they would be fine with that. If this app worked, they'd probably make you pay $9.99 for it

  • Waste of time

    by Ashley Williams

    Please do not waste your time with this app. It does not work. I deleted it.

  • Terrible!!!!

    by THEMrsLong

    Does not work! Entered my Evolve credentials and says they are not valid. One would think for as much as they charge for their textbooks and e-books that they would at least design an app that would actually work. Very Disappointed!

  • Disappointment

    by Horsley909

    Very disappointed with this company and their ability to make texts and website functions available on any mobile or iPad. And then to have an app on the market that won't even let you log in...

  • Why doesn't it work?

    by Turcoloco35

    I would give this a zero if I could. Doesn't load at all and won't accept the correct username/password.

  • Horrible

    by SSS 872

    This company should be ashamed that they put out such a horrible app. I'm deleting but would live for this app to work so it could be utilized in the future!!
