Ratings and Reviews
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.
Turned bad after update to iOS16
The most of the features like animation were excluded from the app after the update. The experience became much worse. The previous version were much better
No way to stop books offloading
I’ve been fighting this for a while. All my books, be it from the store or my own files, get deleted from the device and remain only in the cloud. So every time i want to read i have to download the books again.
What may be a nice feature when you want to save some disk space becomes a nightmare if you discover all your books are offline while on a plane!
So many people on the internet complain about this, seems such a basic thing. Not sure how long Apple will take to fix this???
