Comments and Ratings for iBooks

GEAT APP! (3.2)
21/03/2014 00:32:00 5/5 By StEvIeG2ooo
I dont know why people are complaining, I've bought about 17 books with this app and have no problem what-so-ever. Highly recommended!

Apple messed this up. Very upset. (3.2)
20/03/2014 14:43:00 1/5 By Unltd Thinking
I had several thousand books and PDFs with metadata a from years of organising in iTunes. On updating to Mavericks all of this was wiped and all my books were renamed and meta data was lost. And the books never even appeared across any of my synched devices except the ones I had bought from Apple. Highly irritating and had to restore from an old back up to add them to iBooks again bit having lost a lot of meta data / organisation. So many other people suffered the same fate and none of the apple forum help threads got any response from Apple. Radio silence. Instead users offered up workaround a to go back to iTunes instead of iBooks. I am really disheartened by Apple's iBooks app and their lack of proper beta testing. Either that or they had a devious anterior motive to wipe people's collections to force them to buy through iStore again.

Most used app (3.2)
19/03/2014 09:05:00 5/5 By JosieJay
I always have a book on the go in this app. There's only been a handful I've wanted that haven't been available. I love all the features, especially the black background. Only thing I'd ask is can we have the most recent book reviews at the top. I don't want to know what someone thought of it 3 years ago.

Like, but not like (3.2)
11/03/2014 18:08:00 4/5 By Heni (( _ _ ))
I really like this app, because there are so many formats that you can open. I use a lot of (EPUB). But since i used another app before i still crave to have those options not much just little. For example more colours to highlight with (underscore/over the word), able to highlight not full words, and if you highlight something you can still access the cross reference. Thank you for the app, it is great, i know its not meant for any extensive use but since this is the only app that can open EPUB can you please give a bit more options:)) Thank you for everything

Great app - no need for a Kindle!! (3.2)
09/03/2014 21:05:00 5/5 By Amz is Amaze
Great app and a bonus - I now don't need to buy a kindle! Also guys stop rating it 1 star and saying it is total crap - because of the DESIGN!! It's just sad to see people do it. Honestly. I feel sorry for those who care about the look of their homepage. Don't ever judge a book by its cover (or app by its FRONT COVER DESIGN!)

Hate the Design (3.2)
08/03/2014 21:07:00 1/5 By TiggyWink14
I use iBooks all the time. But I load it on my iPad with Calibre (hate iBooks in Mavericks). However the design of this latest iBooks leaves a lot to be desired. The older design was much more appealing and giving the “impression” or reading a book in its graphics. SO I’m sticking with the earlier version, thanks.

Horrible design (3.2)
08/03/2014 07:53:00 1/5 By Cazza55555
Feature is great but miss the old design. I use this for musical sheets which are white. There is no contrast and white on white is hard on the eye - difficult to identify individual sheets. If we can't have the wooden shelves back, perhaps a choice of background colours?

Crashing! (3.2)
07/03/2014 11:47:00 1/5 By Maureen Chong
Stop tweaking the back end of the app. After working for a couple of weeks the app is crashing again and requesting I login every time. The experience has now been totally ruined and I have decided not to use the app any longer after four years!
