Not able to authorise and non user friendly app !

This app is pathetic. The authorisation section is not working to type anything iniPad. The windows desktop version (4.5) is also giving issues like if any diagram is there that will mot appear in full! Only partly able to see it and in next page it is totally vanishing leaving no trace. I had feedback the same thing to ISACA.

Apple should give feedback to Adobe to fix the problems including the requirement of a up & down scroll bar. This is certainly not a user friendly app.

I am really wondering how is DRM going to support the user needs if things are like this!!!

Apple should remove this app from App Store if Adobe is unable to fix the problems because it will help the users to feedback the issuer of secure documents to provide alternative options.

Bottom line : if a high security is hindering the legitimate use of an authorised material is as good as it is not authorised.

I also don’t know whether I have to buy the printed copy of the book which I want to read. If so it is going to be a double expense for me due the great work of DRM supported apps.

UX issues

The font size and scrolling is well in the realm of nightmares — left to right scrolling on the phone is never a good thing, and the font size is so large that even at the smallest setting a paragraph fails to fit on the page. Don’t really have anything good to say about it.

A app to block your reading

I’ve downloaded quite a couple of reading apps, but ADE takes the cake for making my life difficult.
Does not work. Even after authorizations. Read the forum. Delete app. Choose another book.
Easter egg bonus: the app crawls on my 16GB ram laptop.
