What’s the difference between Bookmarks & Saved? 2016-11-30T14:42:55+00:00

Bookmarks are for sections in specific books that you want to go back to. Code samples, great explanations of a topic, a tricky section that you want to read again.

The “Saved” list is to create your own personal reading list so you can line up your next eBook or Video at your leisure.

Not yet! But we are in the process of creating this functionality with a mobile app.

In the meantime, Pro subscribers can use their Free Tokens to claim eBooks or Videos. This allows you to download books and read them offline via PDF, ePub or Mobi formats, or download videos in high quality MP4 format – all DRM free.

And of course, our web app is completely responsive, so you can always learn on the go.
