IF THERE IS ANYWAY YOU CAN AT ALL AVOID USING THIS APPLICATION, DO!!!! The application frequently crashes or doesn't load and while this app was meant to imitate the true study/note taking experience, it is limited. The savings in ordering an eBook was NOT worth it. I highly recommend using Amazon or other next time.
