Absolutely MUST have before it rates higher than a 2

MUST stop renaming the device every time you upgrade if you don’t have it in the root of Applications.
MUST stop forgetting all of the things you’ve downloaded whenever it does the above.
MUST allow multiple book selections for downloading or adding to collections. (Especially in light of both of the above. Downloading 400-odd books one-by-one is painful.)
MUST be able to import already downloaded books.

it’s getting better…but…ibooks is still better

Why is iBooks still better? I am still waiting for the option to “select more than one book to download at a time”. I use Kindle to store digital manga. Which means hundreds of volumes to download. I have just gone and double-clicked 300+ titles to download. What a drag…BUT I like how you have added in automatic sorting collections “manga” “comics” “books” “textbooks”! That saves my click and dragging every single manga to a manual created manga collection! That I praise you for!! It’s “good” 4 stars. But it’s not great, and it’s taking a while for you to realise this… Thanks for reading.

Unoptimised mess

I mean really, it still lacks 64bit support, window resizing is also slow as if the app is running over wine vertual interface.
Not just slow performance, it also crashes often.
