Before, my notes i wrote in a pdf of a class book got removed suddenly a month ago and then now after IOS 15 update, ALL MY LIBRARY WENT MISSING!!! Its gone! My work pdf, notes and everything! Im devastated and I had a mental break down. I used to have an iCloud back up but because of a payment issues it got downgraded from 50 to 5 gb… seriously I hate this app… I don’t know why I trusted it with my work…
Not sure if this has to do with recent ios 15 update, but syncing my iphone to my macbook deleted pretty much all of the books on my phone. And deleting the app, reinstalling, then resyncing has not helped. Not even 5% of my books are transferring 😞
IOS15 has caused some bugs. Ex: no longer remembers the page you left off on. Opens to a random page or the same page several times. Only saves pages when they’ve been bookmarked. Bummer because I have always preferred the Apple Books e-reader interface to kindle, but may need to switch if the bugs aren’t fixed.
Absolutely my most favorite place/ way to read a book! However, since updating to iOS 15, when I’m reading a book, the menu/ task bar won’t go away by touching the screen? In my opinion, it’s very annoying and takes away from the actual book that I’m trying to read. To me, it’s a distraction, and I would love to be able to make it disappear again, and then reappear with just a tap!
Would be nice to have all my graphic novels take full advantage of the bigger screen size of the new iPad mini. Why wasn’t iBooks updated to fit the new models before release? My mini is my reading device (as for many) for my ebook collection so i naturally expected iBooks to already have been optimized for all my media and fit the new screen size. Hint apple: why I chose to upgrade to the new model! It blows when you have the new iPad mini and All your media still has that old 7.9” ratio of the older models. (Not everything is about the storefront.) please update asap. I’ve also noticed some major slowdown when flipping pages. Just doesn’t feel natural on my new device compared to iBooks on the previous mini model.
I can’t even open any of my books, never mind getting to read them. It was just blank and the “loading” circle going. I even left it going for over an hour and I’m STILL not getting my book.
The read aloud highlighting function on my EPub books doesn’t work anymore. Also the audio is all screwed up. Please fix!
A good start. Needs the following features: 1. More font options. 2. The ability to sync progress across devices. 3. More options to change the margins and spacing. I feel there is a lot of wasted space on the sides and I can’t do anything for change it. A pipe dream feature: Some sort of integration with Overdrive. Kobo has overdrive built in. Nooks have the ability to read library books through adobe digital editions, a computer, and a cable (very 2001 I know.) Kindle e readers can get library books sent to them from the Overdrive/Libby app. Work out whatever deal you need to with the owners of Overdrive so books can either be sent to the books app like kindle or have it built in like kobo. I feel that Apple should be all over this since they are about learning and education and making a strong connection to libraries would be a huge win. Also, why no Books+ service? Maybe work deals with publishers that would excite them because a ton of people have iPhones in their pocket. Or have it be a publishing platform for little indie authors to get discovered? Or be a place with serialized stories? Apple. Call me. I got ideas.
What your listeners want most is an application that will just read a book and be stable. This app continues to crash whenever I get a call or have to use voice to text. And then it loses its place and I have to scroll forward to find it again. We don’t want your app to need the Internet to play a book that’s already downloaded. Open up in my library and start there. Don’t make me wait 20 seconds while you try to get to the Internet before showing me the book that I’m already listening to.
The books in the app stopped going full screen after updating to iOS 15. Please fix this at the earliest.
