What's New in Version 1.3
Bug fix when user updates new content
Whew, what a bomb. MoMA blew it with this one. You would think that an iPad with retina display and art e-books are a match made in heaven. Think again. The display resolution is terrible, the book selection is minuscule, and the navigation buggy. Someone hired the wrong team here, and judging from the DOA status of this app, they have already been fired. Don't bother.
"Updating Catalog" runs for hours and hours
Meanwhile, it is impossible to read some of the good books previously purchased inside this app.
