How to bake

I downloaded this book to find that it was unreadable. The pictures were great but the writing is so tiny on other pages that it was unreadable. Moving the fingers to try to increase the size of any writing did not work neither could I use any font size to be able to read it- as you can imagine I am asking apple support for help or a refund

Terrible execution

The content of this book is great, but it's near on impossible to even turn the page. It's slow chunky and just horrible to use. I've never seen a book like it in iBooks.... The programming is simply horrible. Somebody needs there head read if they think this should have been released in this poor standard. Mary would not be best pleased. I'll be buying the hard back version.

New format

Just a warning this book has a new format which is a little strange. I can see the reasoning behind it as it is easier to move between pages of the recipe in order to go backwards and forwards to the ingredients etc, however it doesn't seem finished. You can scan across two pages which means that you can end up half way between pages (not good with butter hands) but it only works for pages which would be next to ch other in the actual cook book, you would think they would take advantage of the ebook format to fiddle with it slightly. It also doesn't take up the entire screen and looks really strange.

Other than that the pictures are crisp and very pretty and a glance at the recipes they look good but I am not sure how much I will use the book as the format is so strange.
