  • Doesn’t sync between devices

    By Antilllus

  • Horrendous. Why Adobe?

    By Rhett r...
    This is the most frustrating reading experience I’ve ever encountered. Have you guys even used it once before releasing it?
  • Even signing in is annoying

    By Kittycatveryfat
    There is nothing good about this app, it is all around annoying to use, even signing into it is annoying
  • Designed by Amateurs

    By iReviewedU
    The app is nearly unusable. The ONLY reason I use it is because e-textbooks often ONLY come in this format. Half the time I tap a bookmark, highlight, or chapter, it will not even navigate to that page but rather stay on the current page. Furthermore, bookmarks and highlights DO NOT sync across devices. And when I swipe between pages, I usually have to swipe 2-3 times to achieve a successful page turn. The UI is too sparse to be all that useful in an academic environment. Avoid this app if possible.
  • Terrible

    By NickNotTakenScrewUApple
    Very poor design. Couldn’t scroll through pages. Couldn’t delete a book which I didn’t want. Deleting this app immediately.
  • Worst app I’ve ever used

    By I hate yahoo apps
    After using a kindle to read books for a couple years, this is easily just one of the worst apps I’ve ever used. It constantly loses your page, even after just going back and forth between apps. The text is very unpleasant on the eyes. Always glitching and bringing you to a random page. I got duped into using this app after using a gift card from BAM to buy ebooks. This is the only app you can read BAM’s ebooks on. BAM what are you doing?!?! I’ll never buy an ebook from them again
  • If you’re looking for 1985 software this is it

    Someday adobe will reach 2019, unfortunately that will be several decades from now.
  • Overprinting

    By jsmith873
    I wanted a reader for an epub article. I ignored the lousy reviews and rating and downloaded Digital Editions anyway. It’s the first ePub article in my many years of reading online, so why not? The article downloaded fine, but as I scanned thru it, a few pages had sections overprinted on other text. Both were unreadable. Then I noticed that the article could be downloaded and read using my iPad Books app. That worked just fine! Sorry, but my high regard for the Adobe brand has now sagged some.
  • Why are my books disappearing?

    By BrooklynCamilli
    I’ve been using this app for well over a year, just recently it keeps saying my book has expired? This makes absolutely zero sense. Don’t download this app, complete rubbish.
