The Worst Reader!!!

I have a few ebook readers installed on my devices, and this one’s the absolute worst. Wouldn’t have downloaded it if not for an ebook I’ve longed to purchase but only compatible with ADE. Even the simple act of turning a page is such a chore! And when making font size bigger, some chapter paragraphs get lost! Says on their info too that it’s compatible with iOS 9 above, but I can’t view my purchaed ebook on my iPad Mini which runs on version 9+, despite several attempts. Such a shame that such a lousy product came from a company that I consider reputable.

Books won't open

It was working fine for a few months, but now, the books I purchased, which I have already been using, refuse to open. I tried refresing the page and the app itself, I even restarted my iPad, but unfortnately, none of those worked. I would deeply appreciate it if you could fix this problem. I really need to access my books for school. I can't actually study for a quiz right now because my psychology book won't open. Hoping for your prompt feedback and action!

I have Adobe Digital Editions on my desktop PC and it says the books on there have been uploaded to the cloud. However, it doesn’t show up on the ADE app in my ios device.

My borrowed books which have already been saved on the app (which open on the PC) don’t open on the ios app itself. It’s virtually useless.
