One time user

First time I’ve ever downloaded an e-book and this is my experience. I installed ADE on my Windows10 device and it works fine. I downloaded it on my iPhone XS, noticing the one star average, but proceeded anyway. After all, I haven’t got time for reviews.

Can I just say, along with all the other one star users, the app is horrible. I thought it was just me, until I remembered the rating. I cannot believe this is an Adobe product. I wouldn’t have used it if the e-book I downloaded didn’t require me to! Unbelievable in today’s day and age that an app so unreliable from a quality brand exists. Shame on Adobe and shame on me for not just buying a hardcopy book instead.

Embarrassingly bad...

Worst reader I’ve ever used. Bought an online textbook that would not allow Kindle or IBooks and makes you download the App. It works ‘okay’ on Mac computer, but is horrendous on iPad. The page number won’t change. The table of contents link won’t work to take you to a specific page. I’ll be on one page, move one page ahead, the page number won’t change but it skips ahead to a random page in another chapter. Was so frustratingly awful I almost threw my iPad out the window but alas, Not iPads fault.
Whoever built this app should be ashamed. Work harder to get a product to at least work, if not have the functionality of iBooks.

Absolute garbage

I agree with other users - this app is a piece of garbage. Even the help document from Adobe does not correlate with what is in the app. Any company that exclusively uses this reader for their product is crazy.

A collection of snapshots of a page would be more usable than using this app. At least with a number of images I would not get the grey page/block which pops up now and again to block most of the page.

And yes, there is no way to change text size.
