Questia Research App Description

Questia is the world’s only full-featured academic research app for iOS, and its latest version is all-new and surely the best version yet. Get the most out of your Questia subscription by taking your research with you, no matter where you go. Begin with powerful search capabilities atop a librarian-curated collection of over 89,000 academic books and ten million articles from over a thousand of the world’s leading publishers. Add a full suite of research and organizational tools, including Questia’s totally rethought and redesigned in-app reader with gesture-based highlighting and notation. Use your Questia account to access your saved work from any mobile device as well as additional tools and exclusive how-to guides on the Questia.com website. Discover valuable sources, write better papers, and take your research to the next level. Because it’s more than an online library. It’s Questia. Compatibility: Compatible with iOS7.0 and higher. Please note the Questia Library is available for Questia accounts but NOT for Questia School accounts. Recurring Billing: Full access to Questia is available for purchase within the app. At the time of purchase, your iTunes account will be charged an initial amount of $19.99 for one month of access, $39.99 for three months of access, or $99.99 for one year of access. Amounts may vary depending on your local currency. Questia subscriptions will automatically renew at the same duration and price, and your iTunes account will be charged within 24 hours prior to the end of each subscription period. You may cancel by turning off auto-renewal in your Account Settings at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Use of the service is governed by our User Agreements.

    By Gydjkhjyfx
    Questia is is a great research tool to use for research papers and other school related things! It has books, magazines, journals and other articles you can look at for just about any topic you search!
  • Better than the last version.

    Vastly improved experience from the previous version. Works well.
  • User-UNFRIENDLY to the point of unusability

    They seriously need to hire an experienced app designer to fix the user interface. Like the other reviewer said, great subscription service (they have an amazing book collection!) but terrible app. It's not 100% impossible to turn a page in a book...only 95% impossible. I can only flip BACKWARDS, not forwards, and that's only by swiping in an up-down direction. (Both swiping upwards AND swiping downwards flip the pages backwards, as far as I can tell.) Swiping side-to-side like in any other touchscreen reading app (ibooks, kindle, etc) does nothing. Seriously, hire someone who knows about app design conventions.
  • Poor reader

    Love the literature but HATE this app. Can search for literature but to actually read? Not had any success. Very disappointed:/
  • Great subscription svc, terrible app

    I love Questia as a subscription service for scholarly reasearch. It is invaluable. The app is terrible, though. It crashes constantly during searches and when attempting to open a book. Pages are cut off and turning the page is impossible. Use this to find and tag books, but carry your laptop for actual reading.
  • MUST HAVE!

    Questia is great the app not so much.....need to have page numbers clear and viable all times, need to have swiping navigation more consistent, intuitive and explained! If you fix the reader it will be a big step forward
  • Unusable Reader

    By Timmonycrick
    I downloaded this so I could access and read content on Questia. This task is made impossible by the reader, which doesn't show page numbers, and cuts out parts of each page. VERY frustrating.
  • Doubting 2 or 3 stars

    By Teophilus
    by Theophilus 1. Lacks instructions 2. Good general searcher... 3. Lacks inner book searcher, that is very serious 4. To go back to the initial sear from inside a book you have to return to Home, which is absurd 5. Very, very slow in passing the pages 6. Swipe moments dont always work. You have to repeat them. 7. Why not also have arrows to advance and go back, and page number selection. 8. Only two letter sizes to choose. And etc. Etc. PLEASE DO SOMETHING, QUESTIA WAS SO A GOOD PLACE... THE APP NEEDS A LOT OF REFINING...
  • Awful reader

    Buggy, hard to use, slow. Wish these ebooks could be transferred or copied to Kindle.
