Reasonably useless

Constantly crashes, can’t access pages searched (blank page shows up), won’t sync to computer, but so many academic websites require this app to read books. Slow and limited.

How to return books to the library?

Is there a way to return books to the library on the iOS version of Adobe Digital Editions? I don’t have a computer and I don’t find any options to return books from my iPad... Such a pity!

Won’t sync

Downloaded this so I could read my book after forgetting my Kobo. Does not sync books and after reading Adobe forums this seems to be a common problem.
