Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful, but limited
Really like reading with this app and have found the award system fun and rewarding!
I do want to see syncing for audiobooks that I have downloaded from other sources, even if it uses my iCloud storage. Currently having to manually sync over a wire is not really a modern or practical solution, and is an impossible solution for folks that don’t have a traditional computer.
Additionally, would like to see the ability to modify metadata for files in this app. Like in the Music and TV apps where you can change details like artist, director, etc. I’d like to be able to say if it is a novel or textbook, who the author is, etc.; that would be so useful!
I’m ok with IBooks but it lately it keeps shutting down within 10 to 15 seconds of opening a pdf. I updated to the latest version of IOS hoping for a bug fix but it still happens each time. I would try deleting and reinstalling the app but I’m concerned about losing all my titles.
Since the latest iOS update, my books open to various parts but never where I’ve bookmarked. It’s really annoying every time you open your book to have to go looking for where you left off. If I take a call or leave the app for a different app it does this too.
