**NOTE: Because of the way our different applications support HTML page viewing, bookmarks placed before version 2.1 or from our web/mobile Web apps will launch to the beginning of the section when viewed on any platform.
Bookmarks placed from 2.1 or later will resume to the correct virtual page within the section on the iPad app, but the beginning of the section when viewed on the web/mobile web apps.
ALSO: iOS 5.0 users may experience higher volumes of data transfer/synch with iCloud than expected. Newer versions are not impacted.

Great app; don't be misled by bad reviews
This app works great with my unlimited Safari Books Online subscription. I like the fact that I have full access to all of the books and videos I am interested in. Additionally, the app allows me to download up to 3 items in my offline bag (per device), so that I can read them even when not connected to the Internet. The navigation is, perhaps, not as nice as iBooks, but that is such a minor point that I am still able to give a 5 star rating.
Overall, the app makes accessing my Safari library very pleasant on the go, and it sure beats the hell out of trying to subsist on the mobile web site. I highly recommend this app!
The most basic reader imaginable. No features.
Yes, I can use it to view my Safari online content, but that’s about it. There’s no highlighting, notes, or other ways to interact with the content, and I’m not sure what the heck the ‘bookmark’ feature is for since I can find no way to go back to pages I’ve bookmarked. My guess it that it only marks the page so that the next time you launch, it will remember where you were (which it does anyway.) Heaven forbid you’re wanting to use this to get ready for a test - better take notes or screenshots.
Solid app, but needs features
Overall, it's a solid app. Browsing and reading are easy and intuitive. It's handy to have font resizing and white-on-black/black-on-white options.
Offline books works, but make sure your wireless is not connected. If the app sees a connection that's not valid (I.e. No internet but connected) it will fail.
This app really needs features like highlighting, note-taking. and social networks (I.e FB, G+, Twitter, GoodReads, etc).
