Read & Write App reviews

Disappointing I love the computer version - hoping this version would be similar but it’s missing lots of features. Was really hoping for the reader outside of Safari

This doesnt work in any meaningful way for ipad Hi, i started with read and write for ipad. I dont think this app works with my ipad. It seems to do nothing at all. Im in school, i cant recommend the computer application enough. I feel bad giving a one star review. But i am so pleased with the program i use on my computer that i want to make it clear this app straight up does nothing. The computer app is amazing. This team has the ability to make something great. If they get around to ipad thatd be sweet. But if not no worries. I mean this doesnt work. Oh well If you are frustrated this is why It doesnt work
