Chegg Launches Mobile App

Chegg has been making headlines of late, first announcing it was filing an initial public offering in hopes of raising $150 million. Now, the company is launching a mobile app that allows students to use their iOS or Android devices to access Chegg tools and content.

Students can use the app to read e-textbooks and access guided solutions, including two free ones the company plans to provide each week. Other iOS features of the app include textbook search functions by title, author, ISBN, or bar code scanner; the ability to rent or buy physical textbooks; and free e-textbook previews of all titles in the Chegg library.

The iOS version is available in the Apple App store, while the Android app is at Google Play, according to the press release.
