Ratings and Reviews
It was great app before last update to iOS 16
I really miss option of turning page like paper books, bring it back please please please
I love iBooks I’m using it since years but this last update really made me sad. It was great like it was by years, now is strange
so this app is great, I always loved using it but sometimes after the new upgrade the app started to glitch- what I mean is, my goal for reading book per year is 7 (laughable, but symbolic) I already have read like 10 books and it’s still shows that I read 0. Next thing is the app doesn’t show if the book is finished, it’s only 100% read - not finished. The last thing would be that sometimes I have to restart this app because the words just disappear or the word size is changing from page to page, which is very frustrating. I’m using this app for like 8 years and it was always flawless, please fix it ❤️🔥🙏🏻🙏🏻
The app is buggy as hell
Hey Apple Devs and Apple Support! The app is great when it works but there are so many times when it simply does not. For some reason to read a book it has to be redownloaded every time I open the app, which takes much more time than it should (epub files are less than 10 min of size..) even though I have downloaded the book to keep it offline. Other apps can open the same ebook within 5 seconds, without an internet connection. I simply can’t give this app a higher rating, even though I wish I could.
