Worst app I have ever used

I just purchased an eBook and it required me to download this app to read it. I spent $40 on it. I want to share my extreme dissatisfaction with the quality of the eBook format. It was ridiculously challenging to download and I spent nearly 40 minutes trying to figure out how to download it. I finally figured out what the issue was by looking at the comments on the IOS reviews page from several others that had similar issues. The trouble was that you cannot use safari to download it so I had to get an all new internet browser to download it. Then once it was finally downloaded I was incredibly disappointed in the quality of the e-reader itself. The content in the book is great. I know because I have the paperback version. But I was looking for an electronic version that I could take on the road with me and easily access when away from home. When you read the book in the eBook format it looks awful. Words are cut off, you can't even finish reading complete sentences because the formatting is all wonky. This app is absolutely is ridiculous. The quality is so poor it is completely unreadable.

Who designed this stinker?

I have been reading books on my phone for more than a decade, and I’ve use lots of different apps to do it over time. This feels like the worst of a first generation app: The majority of the screen space is blank around a tiny narrow column of text that looks ridiculous justified, because it truly creates distracting volumes of white space down the middle of the page.

Better apps designed for actual readers go closer to the margin of the screen, allow you to stop justifying the text when doing so avoids that distracting white space that literally makes it harder to read, or to keep the justification when it is appropriate for the text.

Adobe’s name is synonymous with graphic design, programs like Photoshop are now so powerful and flexible that that very flexibility is intimidating to many new users. It seems clear that they forgot that flexibility when creating this terrible implementation of an e-book reader. It forces screens to look like weirdly distorted printed and pages and ignores years of experience that make better readers actually a pleasure to use.

Not for School or Recreation

There are problems that me and all of my classmates mentioned while we were using this app. The main problem is that it lags and stops a lot if you are using it offline. When you flip through pages too much, it starts to freeze for a while before you can flip the pages again. So when we were looking for a certain page in our ebook, the app lagged every 10-15 seconds. This happens less frequently with internet connection, but it can still happen. Especially if the app has not loaded certain parts of the book yet.
Another problem is that there isn't a simpler way to find a certain page. Even though the app has a scroller that helps you jump through the pages, it doesn't indicate which page you're going to flip to. If there's a way you can do this in the future, that would be good as well.
TL;DR I don't recommend this app for anyone who wants to use this for ebooks. Whether for educational or recreational purposes. It's better if you find an app that can do so much better until Adobe fixes these problems. It's not worth it.
