For Those Who Have The Book
Bought this to see if there was any difference between this and the actual book version of it. For starters it had a ton of moving pictures, which unfortunately are not in the book. That was pretty cool. Also, you could make all the pictures full screen which is also a nice feature because you can look at them all one at a time. Other than that it is pretty much the same. The only downside is the pull out things in the book (educational proclamations, hogwarts letter, etc.) are all digital so you can't physically take them out. However, the digital versions are pretty cool. The added bonuses to buying this is that you will be able to watch all of the trailers for all eight films and you there are a few pages about deathly hallows that aren't in the book.
Uninstall and reinstall worked for me.
I've had this app for a while and have enjoyed it very much. When I opened it today, it went directly to a blank screen. I went to the app store to see if there was any info (or reviews) regarding this, and learned that the recent iOS upgrade can cause crashing. I followed the directions to uninstall the app and reinstall, and it worked like a charm. Do turn off your iPad after uninstalling and before reinstalling. That made a difference in my case.
I wish there was more info in the app regarding the last HP movie, but perhaps more will turn up in a future update.
Love it Love it Love it
March 2012 - update woe. Yes I got the blank screen issue too.
I uninstalled it from m iPad, did a sync without it. Then reinstalled it
and now it works fine and I'm a happy little house elf once again.
I don't say this often but "Must Have For Any Potter Fan". Realy, it's a fun book to have.
$5 bucks is a very affordable price for such a LOADED book.
Full of details, personal stories, and humerous anecdotes it's well worth having.
The ultimate coffee table book for your iPad!
the ONLY drawback, you can't bookmark a page so you have to scratch through to find where you left off.
