Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Can not view material

    By MikeL328
    I downloaded the help in hopes of accessing the book to read during work. I have downloaded the book 3 times now and still pulls up a white screen every single time. I can access the chapters and descriptions but when it takes me to the book I get a white screen or error message saying book not found. Running the most up to date IOS system. No problem accessing from safari or my laptop but cannot access from the app. Seems like a recurring issue from the developer as previous reviews state the same issue. Update: Took me 5 times to download the book before it finally worked. Not a good first start for the app but will utilize and comment again once class is completed.
  • Great for reading chapters on the go.

    By Bennett Dryden
    I work an average of 48 a week with kids, and community involvement. This app has significantly dropped the hours require to be by a computer. I can read all the chapters I need to from my phone and be ready to knock out homework when I get to my PC. The only two things that are distracting is the top bar that continually appears and disappears when scrolling through material, I would rather it just be locked on. And I also wish I could access my homework modules as well as the videos. Other than that, it is what you make of it.

    I bought the book through another app thinking that Mind Tap was just part of the book. Went to download the book in my ebook app and it sent me to the cengage website. I created a profile and attempted to start reading the ebook from my iPad on the website. Half the pages were cut off and needless to say I was really confused. The app has made a world of a difference and allowed me to download the book to my iPad so that I can read on the go as well. Thank goodness I looked it up to see if there was an app!
  • Needs work!

    By thebulder
    When I search for words/sentences in the book, sometimes it will show a preview of where they are found, but when you select it, it just takes you to the beginning of the chapter and does not work. I recently updated to the iPhone XR and this app is definitely not optimized for the notch. You can just barely see an icon at the edge of the notch that is covered by it. And when typing in the search, the words being typed go into the notch where you can’t see what you are typing. You would think that after over a year of the iPhone X being out, Cengage would have optimized their app for the notch. Apparently not!
  • Book doesn’t open. Can’t view material.

    By Nav4563
    When I download the e-book and try to open the book, it goes to a blank white page and makes the app useless. Once I relaunch the app, I have to once again downloaded the e-book ONLY to have the same problem happen again. All this app achieves therefore is wasting data by downloading a book over and over again only to never access the actual content within the book. Update: No one has gotten back to me on this issue, nor have they tried to fix the application to counteract this problem. For a company that takes so much money from students and schools, they seem to be unable to hire competent programmers.
  • Works

    By Mostlyuseipadforschool
    There have been some stability improvements from what I can tell in regards to the very negative reviews on here. Make sure you are using your CengageBrain account credentials to log into this app. It was not able to save my place when I updated the app today but otherwise it works about as well as the other leading eText apps out there. This is of course with exception to the Soomo app but the books used by that app are written very differently from most college textbooks. I like it better than Pearson that’s for sure!
  • Not user friendly!

    By New York +30
    The app allows tapping on one work to get a “define” option but not if more words are selected. The app does not allow users to copy and the paste a term or terms in the search box or anywhere. I need to do this to see where else multiple words or terms were used in the book. I must type again. And again. Because I cannot copy. It looks that the publishers are greedy trying to prevent users from copying. This is 2018. Users find other ways!! You are only making it hard for legit users. Hello? Looking at other publishers now.
  • An OK learning app

    By Rjsaucier
    This app is alright. It has some nice features like flash cards and text to speech. The navigation is tricky and a lot of features (viewing PP and Reality Check) cannot be accesses in the app and neither can Chapter reviews. Sometimes the tables aren’t resided to fit mobile screens right. This app doesn’t eliminate the need for a browser with MindTap products nor will your tablet be able to replace your PC in all cases. It’s a nice addition to the MindTap website though. Not the worst education app I’ve used but not great either.
  • This app has made all the difference

    By Srenk08
    I work full time as well as have children at home, this app has been a godsend when it comes to homework and studying. The text to speech function makes it so I can listen to my textbooks while driving/cooking/etc. and has literally made studying so much easier. Also the flash cards and practice quizzes are great study tools as well.
  • Helpful app

    By LILCHAOS002
    I'm able to bring my iPad to class and follow along if that's all I want to do. I must open safari in order to log in as you would on a laptop in order to watch videos and work the assignments. Which is fine. I do appreciates the way the book explains the topic, gives examples and then has students attempt it.
