No sync between devices.

two annoying features:
1. no sync between devices. I ream on Mac, iPhone and iPad. Every time i need to recall whem I stopped reading and scroll down. It’s much easier in kindle app. Pls add sync feature between devices.
2. It automatically offload books and you need to download before reading it. And if you no Internet connection you can’t read them.
I can’t understand the problem with storing a few Megabytes on local disc.
If you don’t have purchased books, I recommend to look for alternative reading apps.

Deletes my books and wont let me download them again

This app decides since my phone doesn’t have enough space it can just erase my books automatically and wheni come to download them it says i need wifi to reload them not mobile data. If i had wifi I wouldn’t be rwading a book i would be on IG.
Theres no setting anywhwre to change this!!!
My favourite thing about this app was that it had a slide bar where you could see how far in you were of just drag it to go forward or back but now its hidden in the menu and its basically useless to me now
My books suddenly blank when im reading. Likw i would be on 30 with 10 pages left in the chapter and as i scroll down suddenly its blank and i have to reset the app and download my book again for it to be fixed. But i can download cause maybe im in the bus and i only have mobile data.

This used to be my day-to-day used app

I bought iPad when my bookshelf was not capable of adding new books and my sight started to decline slowly not only to read ebooks on it but mainly. I was pleasently surprised by the screen quality and by a good reading experience using iBooks. It was clearly better than any of my previous eink readers and even close to paperbook experience. And books were searchable... I could have many of them with me.

But the good reading experience is somehow gone with the redesign of the app, now called Books. My reading setup disappeared, turning pages is gone, searching is gone (or well hidden), Jobs rule to never break UX is trampled.

And most probably there is no way to restore previous version. How unfortunate!
