Really outdated

It baffles me that a gigantic company like Adobe has an app like this in 2020. I thought the mac-version was bad, but I believe the iPad-version is even worse. The interaction design looks like something from early 2000s, when tablets were but a distant dream, and people wasn`t comfortable with touch screen. Seriously Adobe, this i embarrassing!

I lost a few thousand braincells using this app.

Seriously, I think i just got aids.

- Importing books is a nightmare, I'll import one book and it suddenly appears twice in the library. Not only that but all the metadata gets thrown in the trash. Apparently "Chemistry (McMurry)" is actually called "I35GO8H0ROCIN4I"
- The entire app feels sluggish, with constant hiccups and weird croppings of pages, not to mention that I need to swipe like a robot for the page to turn.

Save yourself of the tumor and avoid this app.
