Chegg Unveils Updated Mobile App

Chegg just released a redesigned version of its mobile app for etextbook reading. The app, which is available for Apple and Android devices, has more than 2.5 million guided solutions to help students answer problem sets and question sections in textbooks. Solution topics so far include math, science, engineering, and business.

Students can also read their etextbooks (rented for a monthly subscription fee) on the app and search for titles by keyword or by scanning a physical book’s bar code.

New to the app is the option to receive two free guided solutions per week and read more than 2,500 free etextbook samples. The homescreen is now streamlined to include access to both the etextbook reader and the guided solutions. Chegg encourages user feedback to fine tune the new app; in fact, student feedback was instrumental in creating this update.

Chegg notes on the app homescreen that the next update will include 24/7 study help for questions from students on-the-go.
