What's New in Version 3.2
iBooks has been updated with a beautiful new design for iOS 7.
Don't Mess with Perfection!!
I am a total bookworm and I loved the iBook app....until the update came along today. It's purely aesthetic things and that made me sad - what's with the orange colour scheme? why has the red page marker been made smaller? why take away the choices of format for the books? And again what's with the orange colour scheme? The app worked perfectly but the changes seem to have been made just because someone "could" rather than they "should".
If I could give this 0 stars, I would
The old iBooks was great. The design was nice to look at and easy to use at night. But I actively avoided the new update until I made a mistake and downloaded it by accident. You guys at apple have screwed up with these new "beautiful" designs. It's terrible. Not beautiful. Terrible. It's white and colourless and nothing works anymore. I'm tired of the sterile ugly look and want nothing more than for the old ios to be reinstated.
Apple now have an odd definition of beautiful. The ole design was nice, it resembled a bookshelf. It was a little slow sometimes, but nothing I couldn't live with. Now we have a design that's uglier, and loads more slowly. Apple used to have a reputation of combining design and functionality perfectly. This latest round of updates is damaging this.
