Textbook Apps: Kno vs. Inkling

09/20/11  |  Posted by Keri Svoboda  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

[caption id="attachment_859" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Which is the better app?"][/caption] Kno textbooks Inkling Kno textbooks and Inkling are both brilliant ways to avoid the mailing process, but their interfaces set them apart. Kno textbooks is a little harder to use and does not have all the features that Inkling has built-in. Kno has a tendency to have pages just scanned in, instead of converting the images into an easy digital interface like Inkling has. Kno textbooks also has a few information posters, listed as books, so users must be careful when using Kno to buy books for reference. Don't judge the book by the cover! Make sure that it's not a poster! On the other hand, Inkling seems to be a much better application, better suited for users in search of resources. The interface seems to be geared towards college-aged students or higher. I recommend that students, and teachers alike, looking for a better interface to use Inkling for its ability to not only easily scroll through pages, but also add highlights and notes that the user can add on their own and view with the touch of your finger. It also can be noted that there are some free books on either interface, but finding them is very difficult without an advanced search option to show the free books. Here are links to both applications: Kno Textbooks - FREE Inkling - FREE
