People reviews

Impression and review of people to iPhone App [Packt]!

  • The code examples missing.
    by keerthiprasads on 2021-03-12 at 2:37 AM

    The app is horrible, it does not show the code examples, but the same book is displayed properly in the website. Also some sections of the book are missing when read using the app.

  • Do not download (privacy concerns)
    by Desire4death on 2021-02-04 at 11:54 AM

    I used the app for two days and I did not like it. I contacted the customer support and requested to delete my account and related information. I was told that they cannot do that and on top asked for me to provide my postal address (which was never asked for while creating the account). The app developers privacy policy is really shady and based on my experience I would say please do not open you account with Packt.

  • Love this app and Packt
    by wildernessfamily78 on 2021-01-13 at 4:19 AM

    I have a subscription to Packt. Their books and awesome! I spend two hours each night reading using this app. Some comments say they cant download the books. I've had no problems downloading the books. It definitely takes longer then Kindle but they download. I just downloaded the book on PyCharm. I hit download and I know PyCharm fairly well but thought maybe I could pick up a few tricks. I was skimming and by the time I got to Chapter 3 it was downloaded. Maybe 15-20 minutes. Also, I live way up in the mountains. My internet is very slow too. The app is very functional! Its sad that it has such a low score. The subscription to Packt and the app defiantly 5 stars and worth 10.00 a month! Ps. One feature request please. The ability to zoom in on pictures. i have to copy the pic and paste in into notepad to be able to zoom in and see details. Zoom would be very beneficial. Thank you!

  • Can’t download books
    by Trmsd on 2020-12-23 at 6:21 PM

    I agree with others that this app has a lot of issues, but the most glaring problem to me is that, even though I pay a subscription fee to access Packt Publishing materials, I cannot download books to reference them locally without a wireless connection. If you click on the download button for a book you are reading, the status indicator will just spin forever and never actually finish downloading. There is no error indication given. If I cannot download the materials for offline use, this is useless to me and I will not continue paying for access. Also troubling is that others are reporting this same behavior in their reviews and yet it still persists as a problem. To the developer: Can you fix this, and if so WHEN?

  • Needs work
    by Richard Albury on 2020-12-09 at 3:14 AM

    I’ll second what mjohnson24 said: lots of annoying usability issues with the app. It’s a shame, because the Packt content is quite decent, but this prototype of an app is a barrier for customers.

  • Good
    by BryanTorresVega on 2020-10-17 at 1:08 AM

    There is a room for improvement, but it gets the job done.

  • Just a Website in a App
    by Cookytime on 2020-07-04 at 4:01 PM

    No reason to download the app. Just use the website. When you click links to other books it just opens web browser 🙁 I was hoping for offline reading, deep links. But not worth the space of the install.

  • Cuts off Content
    by ChuckJS on 2020-05-23 at 2:57 AM

    Initially, when I started reading a book, it behaved well. But, after a while, it started graying out entire paragraphs. I ended up going back to the website. Needs work.

  • Useless, it’s just the website
    by sjordi on 2020-05-01 at 9:04 AM

    This is again an example of people with no idea what an « app » is. This is just the website encapsulated. Use Safari instead.

  • FIX Downloads - Never finishes downloads
    by Cicorias1 on 2020-04-18 at 3:16 PM

    Haven’t updated in 5 months. This is an afterthought and today I’ll be canceling my subscription. Unfortunately titles never finish downloading so I can’t use this app offline at all, such as on a plane. Disappointing that a company selling tech books puts out horrible tech like this. I question the credibility of the tech books now as well.

  • Font size doesnt stay
    by Poor homer on 2020-02-03 at 11:57 AM

    The font size selection reverts to the default when you go between sections. Quite annoying. I would suggest a global setting.

  • Please remove this app
    by reviewing_apps_oh_my on 2019-12-14 at 6:45 PM

    Please remove this app from the App Store.

  • I am trying to read. Don’t need your giant bars to popup when scrolling
    by tebruno99 on 2019-09-19 at 3:41 AM

    I got this app in hopes that it would have a UI that would stay out of your way when trying to read. INSTEAD Packt has decided to take up a huge portion of the screen for a big empty title bar that annoys by popping up and away every time you scroll. So annoying I can’t focus on the content I purchased to use in this app.

  • Content not loading on iPad 9.3.5
    by slylock2 on 2019-04-20 at 2:10 PM

    Book content is not loading for me, I have an older iPad, iOS 9.3.5

  • Add multitasking function please
    by egniu7t on 2019-04-13 at 4:01 AM

    Please add multitasking function view add split screen function

  • Constant broken patches
    by cdp^ on 2019-02-23 at 10:36 AM

    The latest update has once again broke the menu on the iPad. It makes you wonder if they test.

  • app needs work
    by mjohnson24 on 2019-02-03 at 4:54 PM

    I like the idea of the app being me able to subscribe and get access to tons of books but the app needs work. The create account button doesn’t work on ipad. I had to go to website in browser just to create an account. Haven’t subscribed yet. my short few more minutes using the app there’s a gradient at the bottom of each section just above the next section button that ends up covering up some of the text in the book that’s sometimes fully unreadable. There’s absolutely no need to have any kind of gradient at the bottom that covers text especially. I’m hesitant on subscribing due to some of the negative reviews.

  • Portrait mode broken
    by Mko10 on 2019-01-12 at 7:49 AM

    After last update it is not possible to use app in portrait mode because menu automatically opens in portrait mode and covers 80% of the screen. Landscape is fine. Update on Jan 12 - they solved the annoying issue in portrait mode, app is usable again

  • Not ready
    by Brake2Late on 2018-12-25 at 3:07 AM

    Every update there’s something new, something to frustrate you. This makes me wonder if I should continue the subscription.

  • Disappointing update
    by lbolado on 2018-12-24 at 3:22 PM

    The top navigation bar pretty much left the app non usable. I can’t go back to the titles currently reading because it doesn’t go away, so need to open a Safari browser and read it there.

  • Not working on iPad Pro
    by TheF150 on 2018-12-23 at 4:09 AM

    I just subscribed today but was disappointed to find the app isn’t working correctly on the iPad Pro. The menus seem to have improperly formatted html or css issues and the menus cover over half the screen at all times making it unusable. I’ll have to reconsider the subscription if it’ll be a while before that’s fixed. Hopefully it will be soon.

  • The menu bar is blocking blocking half of the screen
    by Orcascrate on 2018-12-22 at 3:19 AM

    Menu bar is literally blocking half of the screen on iPad. Your team should just fired whoever QA this thing before release.

  • Update broke layout on iPad
    by genbod on 2018-12-19 at 2:12 AM

    The entire top bar is making it impossible to use. At least before the update, it actually worked.

  • subscribe not working after this change
    by abhijitIN on 2018-12-18 at 8:48 PM

    subscribe not working after this change

  • Need fix for iPad pro
    by Minaroch on 2018-12-17 at 4:00 PM

    I think app supports iPhone and not for iPad. Need a fix for iPad layout.

  • Good app just one suggestion
    by rekkss on 2018-11-26 at 9:01 PM

    You should really get rid of the bar at the top. Make it disappear when you scroll down on ebooks. It takes too much screen space that could be better used for the ebook.

  • Great app
    by Stupiuno on 2018-08-29 at 3:06 AM

    Works great, makes books far more readable.
