How it Works

Online & Offline Reading

The Snapplify Reader app is a great choice for both students and professors because it has features that are useful for school, like the ability to add notes, highlights, and bookmarks to a journal.

Students can look back at their test preparation journals to remind themselves of important ideas and notes. With cross-device note syncing, students can take their work from class to home without losing their notes or progress.

Students will never lose their books or notes because data is stored and copied in the cloud.

User Analytics

To find out more about how interested your students are in the course material, you should collect and analyze data about how and when they read and use ebooks.

Thereafter, you can use this helpful information to make changes to your school’s curriculum, annual budget, and teaching methods.
