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.

Crashes constantly

The Adobe Digital Editions app crashes with disturbing regularity withouth saving the position in the book. It is next to useless.

Doesn't work properly

It seems like the book is not on the iPad as it takes so long to load the pages. Feels more like I'm reading a book online.
