Forever loading

Version 1.10.2
It would be a great app if it actually worked. Worked the very first time I installed it, every time I open it now I just get the rotating loading wheel, doesn't matter how long I leave the app open for it never loads. Tried deleting and reinstalling - same thing happens, works once then back to loading!
Please fix!!!!

Why the OpenAthens doesn’t work on this App??

Bruno Calife Mota
Version 1.10.2
I used this resource on my computer and it’s quite good actually. Nevertheless, it’s very frustrating not be able to use it on my iPhone phone - which is the easiest easiest thing to use daily.


Version 1.10.2
This app is useless! It can’t be used at all. It doesn’t go past the initial loading screen!!

Still unable to load app

Version 1.10.1
After initially seeming to work on first run-through, I'm now met with the same orange screen with loading wheel as other reviewers. It is not 'fixed on recent version'. Is this a download screen? - in which case you need a progress bar. Please address this as lack of mobile compatibility on my device means I will not be rating this app more than 1 star. As an institutional purchase from Elsevier of multiple thousands I expect better.

Loads forever

Version 1.10.1
Waste of time...never loads. No fix seems to have been made - tried everything from updating to reloading the app.

Open Athens...

Access doesn’t work
I guess they don’t mind since the institutions keep paying regardless.

Version 1.10.1
Constantly freezing need to fix this pointless otherwise

Good app 1st use only!

Version 1.10.1
Seemed like an amazing app the first time I used it. Since then, every subsequent attempt to open the app results in the spiny wheel of death at the loading page.
Also, there is no bookmark function on the phone app - a bit useless when you can’t save your favorites.
With work, this will be an excellent app!

Perpetual loading

Ollie 2017
Version 1.10.1
This was a 4* app after the openathens login saving details problems were fixed.
I login using openathens but for past month or so it gets stuck loading when the app is launched after initial login.
I’ve tried reinstalling several times but to no avail...still the same.
Can’t keep reinstalling every time I need to use so will have to ditch it until fixed.
Also feature wise, it would be great to have a “bookmarks” section where links to whole books and journals could be saved not just individual chapters or articles.
I would love to be able to just click on Lancet ID or Mandell’s principles of ID and go to index easily rather than searching every single time.
If above were enacted it would go straight to 5*

Perpetually frozen

Version 1.10.1
Freezes after the initial setup and first use. Would have to reinstall every time I’d want to use... forced to keep going back to online version. What’s the point?


D Snead
Version 1.6.0
The app is unstable and has limited functionality.

Institutional support?

Version 1.4.4
Says you can use institutional support but has no option for it.
Very poor effort from elsevier for one of their "flagship" products

No option given for institutional login.

Tim A Coughlin
Version 1.1.0
It describes being able to use an institutional login but there is no way of selecting this when you open the app.
