Read two books at onceandroid-split-screen

Whether you’re studying the thought of Francis Bacon or the grammar of the Iliad, it is often helpful to have two books open at the same time (such as a dictionary or lexicon). Unless you have long, nimble arms and like doing all your reading at a desk, this can be tricky with traditional books. Not with Noet! With Noet, you can have two books open on your screen at the same time. Just slide the grey panel-splitter at the bottom right of the screen to the middle to expose the second panel. To choose a new book for the bottom panel, tap on the title of the book and select a new title from the library. That’s it!

Scroll related texts togetherandroid-multiple-languages

When studying classical texts, it is often helpful to have the English translation open at the same time as the original language text. Adding to the complexity of having two books open, you need to flip pages in both books at once! Not with Noet! With Noet, related texts scroll together, keeping both your texts on the same page as you read. To enable this function, press and hold the panel-splitter tab, then slide the button for linked panels to yes.

See more of what you want

Want to see more of one text? No need to close the other, just slide the panel-splitter tab up or down to adjust the panel size. Even if you hide one of the texts the panel linking still works. Just move the slider back to the middle and pick up where you left off.

Let’s say you’re studying Homer’s Iliad in English with the Greek text below and you run across a Greek word you’re not familiar with. If you just need some basic info on the word, there’s no need to close the text and open a lexicon. Just long press on the word in question, select ‘Look Up,’ and Noet will give you a quick summary of the key information about that word.

Need even more information on the word? You can run a search or a word study from this same window.

If you long press on an English word and tap ‘Look Up’, Noet opens up another window with a complete definition and etymological information. Just press ‘done’ when you have what you need and Noet takes you back to the two-panel view.

The Noet mobile app allows you to customize your research environment to help you study better and save your time.

Searching with Your Noet App-Android

Your free Noet app is much more than an e-reader. It has powerful tools that help you get more out of your reading and research—such as the search tool. When your Noet app is online, you have access to our powerful cloud-based search engine. This engine is fast and customizable, giving you the results you need without having to wait.

Near-instant search resultssearch

To run a search in Noet, tap the app button or swipe down on the text and then tap the magnifying glass. When you plug a search term into Noet, the app will populate a list of every time that word or phrase is used throughout your library in seconds.

Find exactly what you want

Your Noet app recognizes all of the Boolean operators. Say you’d like to find a phrase containing two words, but you don’t know the exact phrase. Use a modifier “WITHIN # WORDS” to locate the phrase. For example, ‘good WITHIN 5 WORDS evil’ will show you every place in your library where good and evil are within five words of each other.

android-searchSometimes, you want to cast a wide net when searching, seeing where a term shows up across your entire library. Other times, all that data is distracting and you just want to hone in on results from a specific resource or set of resources. The Noet mobile app allows you to do both. If you want to search across your entire library, choose ‘Entire Library’ under the search box.  If you want to limit it to a specific book, tap ‘Entire Library’ and select the title from the menu. If you don’t see the title you want, go back to your library and open the book. When you return to the search window and tap ‘Entire Library,’ the title should appear at the top of the list.

This is just the beginning. If you download our free desktop app (Mac or PC), you can create collections of works within your library, which are accessible on your mobile device. These collections allow you to further narrow your search. For example, you can find how many times ‘virtue’ is used within the the works of a particular author, like Plato.

Re-run previous searches

Sometimes a search result doesn’t seem relevant at first but later you need to go back to it. Noet makes this easy by saving your previous searches. When you pull up the search box you will see a list of previous search terms and parameters. Tap the search you want and Noet will run it again. If you’ve added new books to your library since the last time you ran the search, Noet will include those books when it re-runs the search.
