Terrible app

How can anyone be expected to use this.Highlighting does not work. Can’t make notes with Apple Pencil. Why would a any company want to use this app for online learning?
DRM Protection prevents using any other apps to open material. What a joke.

Terrible loading glitches, constant highlighting and note glitches, such a shame to have to read a purchased book on here. Makes the book a waste of money.

This wretched app crashed my iPad repeatedly

I was trying to use Adobe Digital Editions to read publisher’s advance review copies because they have DRM and require a reader with Adobe ID. This app is, frankly, garbage. It got to the point where it finally wouldn’t do anything but crash my iPad whenever I opened a book. After discovering an alternative to this wretched app, I have successfully downloaded the Bluefire Reader App instead and will be using that in the future.
