I love Apple Books and I love reading. I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and discovered bionic reading as a very very helpful tool for me with maintaining focus and absorbing the content while reading. PLEASE Apple would you consider adding bionic reading as an option? Neurodivergent people (and there are plenty of us) would be reading (and buying) a whole lot more here if this option was available. Thanks!

Educational Tool

Looking at the reviews of negativity is sad, as the Books App is an awesome tool for interactive learning. I tutor folks with a variation of disabilities, who are able to use the MarkUp tool to improve their Literacy skills on the Books App. You are able to download .pdf documents which can be uploaded into the Books App, then using Text boxes on the iPad or just simply your finger to write with you can insert information on the document. Do not miss out on the wonderful range of Creativity Books available for Free relating to iPad Apps and also every time there is an Update to iPads and iPhones folks do not even know there are FREE manuals available on the Books App..............Thank you from a very grateful Tutor.....👩🏻‍💻🌻

iOS update 15.6.1 has broken this app!

Updated to iOS 15.6.1 and now the text in this app is too small. It goes down to microscopic , but nowhere near the larger size it used to. I have low vision and can’t read my books . Please fix this as soon as possible. I’m sure I’m not the only one having this problem. And yes I have accessibility set for large text and bold text, and have added the books app to it, but it does nothing in the app. I have also contacted support and they can’t fix it. I asked them to let the software people know but they said I needed to do a feedback to the software department, which I have done, however they say they don’t answer you and I have heard they are more interested in security issues. Not good Apple where is your compassion for disabled people who rely on this app to be able to read still! Plus I have spent a small fortune on books that I can no longer read!
