beook 7.1.6

Wednesday September 22, 2021

With the new version, it is now possible to work even more efficiently thanks to the new concept for keyboard shortcuts:

There are now various keyboard shortcuts available to jump to exercises, content, notes, etc. Editable fields or exercises can also be saved temporarily with a shortcut. The keyboard shortcuts are documented here.

We have also made various corrections and improvements:

  • Fixed error with the navigation on the pages in certain fixed-layout ebooks.
  • The learning and exercise scenarios show appealing statistics at the end, which result was achieved and how the performance was improved.

We have completely revised the display on the iPhone and Android smartphone. It is now possible to switch clearly and quickly between the content, the tasks, the annotations, the media and the search. Navigation has been greatly simplified.

Furthermore, we have implemented numerous general improvements in this version as well as corrected the errors known to us.

We wish you a good start into the new school year.

This version contains various small corrections and improvements:

beook web 1.2

Wednesday March 31, 2021
We have been diligent in the last few months: beook is now also available as a web version. The first version does not yet have annotations, but can be fully used for displaying the content. Later, it will also be possible to create annotations, which will be synchronised with the cloud and to carry out searches (around the end of July). Task processing will follow in autumn/winter. We are now publishing new ebooks on an ongoing basis as requested by providers. We will keep you up to date!
