full with bugs

Ipad version is a piece of crap. It keeps quiting or randomly going back to the beginning of the book. The bookmarks also dont always work e. g. I use this sowtware for CFA exam and tha pages' numbering not consistent, sometimes the program marks the pages to be 20-40 pages less then it should be thus makeing it hard to bookmark.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you are having issues with Bookshelf and your eBooks. You should not be having these kinds of issues. Would you please email me at and let me know what books are giving you issues with page numbering and some example of where you see this issue. Please include the device and OS version you're running? We will take a look at the book and see what we can do to make things better for you.
