What's New in Version 4.5.7
Security bug fixes
Been using this app for a while now on my iPad Pro 10.5 and it is frustrating me to no end. It keeps syncing blank books to my device and then constantly crashes. As if that wasn’t frustrating enough, there isn’t a way to mass delete all those blank books and there over 160 of them! I went through and manually deleted them ALL.... then I thought I might uninstall the app and retry... nope... it just re-sync those 160 blank books all over again. I would like to have all the hours of my life back that I invested into this app, but I’m doubtful Adobe can make that happen. Perhaps if they enabled two-page view and fixed the glitch where it keeps crashing and syncing blank books... I might be able to forgive them.
The purpose of consumer technology is to make human lives easier and more efficient. This product does precisely the opposite. By inserting itself clumsily into what were previously smooth workflows, it hampers experience at every turn. Poor user interface, many lags and glitches, impossibly restrictive sharing features. This is several steps backwards from Gutenberg, to wit, I would much prefer bound volumes I could keep at my desk--they would be so much easier to use. This entire product is a dark smirch on Adobe's good name. If I see that a book is available through Adobe Digital Editions, next time I will be wise enough to run the other way.
Really frustrating app
Most Bay Area technology vendors design their products to wow the user. They make it easy for the consumer to sign up and get started in mere seconds and then have a pleasurable experience as you use the product.
Not these guys. Not at all.
It looks like the User’s experience is the last thing on Adobe’s mind.
They just don’t care if you like it or not. They still design their products as if it were the 1990s.
Rest assured you will have a frustrating and infuriating experience with this app that will turn you off from using any Adobe product at all.
