Good improvements.
Problems found :
1- Reopening a file doesn’t recall the last page / area when was closed, it just recalls 3-5 pages earlier.
Suggestions :
1- Make the title bar floats when the page is clicked so it doesn’t change the level of the line being red.
2- if I click search so I’ll be typing! Surprised ?? Ya I 99% will so if the keyboard opens automatically will be great.
3- Dear developers, please use this app on iPad to read pdfs at least 3-4 hrs a day as I and others do, I’m sure you will get the right way to add nice modifications.

Why the hell the title bar shows every time I scroll down !!!! Who the hell is the genius developer who think this is convenient or comfortable ! This developer is NOT using this app to read books. Before I used to tap to show the bar or scroll down just to scroll the hell down.. now scrolling down shows the hell of the title bar and confuses eyes searching for the hell of the line I’m reading ... developers please USE your apps for what we use them for ...

I have 700 books in pdf on iPad and I use it since years .. I recommended it to MANY iPad and iPhone users
now !!Just bad after the last update!
1- links inside pdf files are not working anymore
2- bad interface
3- search icon change is annoying
Recent view is just bad
4- can’t open files in other apps !!
And a lot more problems

What else are you going to use?

Regardless of which platform I am, using Adobe Acrobat, is the only reading app I turn to for .pdf documents. It is always efficient, effective and up to date. On the iPad who blends in well with the way I work and I am always pleased to be able to email stuff to my iCloud account and then send attached ?pdf's to Acrobat, where I can continue to access them long after the email has been deleted.
Then when I've finished with the document, a quick flick to the left gives me the option to delete it.

Less intuitive controls / visuals

Latest update has removed a lot of the speedy functionality of the previous version. No swiping on an item to move, rename, delete etc. Can’t find how to transfer files via Bluetooth within the app any more. Can’t delete the “Welcome” pdf. Each file seems to use a lot more height, so less files visible on screen at a time. It still opens PDFs.
Update: trying to change directions while scrolling and stopping scrolling both have significantly delayed response times, I assume because of the way they make the top bar appear or disappear depending on the direction you scroll. Frustrating.
