This app is amazing appI love it hows ever looking on the reviews get this app                Amazing app
Lately I have to wait a long time for the app or a book       Please Update
I even use it in school                UmI LOVE IT
I always look at the reviews before I get an app so as I always do I decided to check them and well they litterally said the app went from great to TERRIBLE and this is horrible because Im really looking for a book app any suggestions    Uhhh
The ibooks store isnt working How am I supposed to get new books Whenever I click on the store its just blank white Fix it please    Store
iBooks is a huge disappointment after using audiobooks I have to flip through chapters to start the book I listening during my commute so when I have to manually forward to the next chapter it becomes more trouble than its worth Boo    Audiobooks1 iBooks0
Love this new design                New design
Id like to be able to highlight and make little side notes but I dont know how          Great but
I think iBooks is a great app if you like to read you can download books them easily It is easy and simple to read the books you love when you want to          iBooks
I really like this app It is very easy to use and useful It is convenient too Love this app                Love this app
I recently updated to iOS 71 a couple months ago and iBooks update is horrible most importantly they took out the rotating feature And Ive had to re download some of my PDFs because some if them just disappeared one day I cant stand that I have to go to iBooks to download files online if I leave while its downloading it wont work Please fix these problems          Please Fix This
Terrible design after last update    Terrible
Hate the new look Bring back the bookshelf Some things just need to be left alone Seems like you are copying off of kindle The bookshelf felt cozy as though you were actually pulling a book off the shelf I dont know what this is Who ever thought of this needs to be fired Booooo Im done with Apple    Want book shelf back
I bought American sniper and it wont download but it took the money off of the account FIX    Fix
It is the best thing I have ever sawlolthis is the and reading is awsome                This is awesome
Perfect way to organize your pdfs Highly recommend                Great way to organize
I really LOVE the app itself but it makes my phone run slower and it freezes and shuts off while Im reading a book and wont let me on other books             It love it but
We are not children without any kind of decision We dont need Apple decides for us in terms of design Give us the opportunity to choose what bookshelves background we want In the new update please include in the options the previous features       Great App horrible design
I absolutely hate this app I have a lot of books but the little circle is always spinning so I cant even get to the edit button to delete them It takes at least 30 minutes to download my books They always show up on my phone but it takes forever on my iPad The little cloud button with the arrow always shows up and it have to constantly press it before the book will download Ive had to resort to using the Nook and Kindle apps because this has so many problems I wish they would fix it because I really like the setup of iBooks    HORRIBLE
I enjoy this app but I preferred the previous version The wood shelves were classy One could delete books The edit button is missing so books cannot be deleted There is no info on how to put books into categories which would be nice The weekly free book has vanished I still look for books but Im not as pleased with this app as I was          IBooks is fine but took a step back in the new release
Sooooo stupid I got this app and its free but you have to pay for the books you cant just make the app cost money and pay once instead of making the books cost for every book on there you read it makes you pay money    Stupid
I recommend you read The Help amazing book just finished it and its heart touching                
I still like iBooks but the older version was more pleasing to the eye in landscapebook mode on the iPad Now it looks just like the Kindle app and that is not a good thingNote to designers Dark room Reading a book using Night black theme Going back to the Library is very jarring with its bright white background I went back to the old versionUpdate 09232014And now this beautiful new design boring version is forced with iOS 8 By being part of the operating system it is no longer a separate app on upgraded devices that we can remove and reinstall the old version Sad This app has not been updated since Nov 2013 I really hope Apple has read these reviews before they no longer exist under an app and update it soon with some more UI options to make the program more personal to individual likes Reading is very personal101514 Im missing out on the new iOS 8 features on my main device because Im holding out on upgrading All to keep the old iBooks version a little while longer040915 Im finally updating my iPad to 8x Byebye bookshelf Byebye book edges Ill have to visit you on my older iGadgets that cant be upgraded to the latest iOSWhen the Night theme is used on a book sometimes the background switches to a darkish blue after a few seconds and sometimes it stays bright white either way I have squint Apple please add more background options to iBooks Please       Too flat Too white Too BORING
Refer to title Not sure what all of the complaints are for Its especially good for iPad or maybe iPhone 6 iPhone 6 Plus                iBooks is OK
I absolutely hate this app now Its completely white and sterile and not the cozy wooden bookshelf it used to be The books take forever to load The app just crashes after idling for five minutes It deletes my book marks I hate itits soo crappy now what the hell been trying to download a new book for an hour waste of time FIX IT    Why
Apple let people who prefer the look and feel of reading a book have the Classic look back I would pay to have it restored The current look is ugly cold sterile but most of all just not fun to read The new version is just a sad Kindle knockoff Now there really isnt any difference betweend the reading experience on the IBOOKS and that on any of the other tablet ereaders Too bad I used to enjoy buying and reading books exclusively on the IPAD Now I will look at Kindle books which are offers a much wider inventory of books dd    Bring Back Skeuomorphism as in app purchase
This the best pdf viewer app that Ive ever used but if you add visible bookmarks that you can see before entering the book it will be awesomeAnother thing if you could add the arabic books to your library that would be good                Great app
It wont even let me download a book without saying their is a mismatch error and I can not download a book       Fail
Love it But every time I get on it it LOSES MY PLACE IN THE BOOK Its VERY FRUSTRATING          ITS COOL BUT
It is good to use but I like my kindle better       Good but
I dont understand the bad reviews I have never had any issues with iBooks whatsoever I can easily find the book Im looking for download it easily and it always retains my spot with no problem Even if I am reading a book on my phone then switch to my tablet and it automatically updates I where I was on my phone I love it and have no bad things to say about it at all                Great App
This is the main reason I have not updated to iOS 8 You expect us to adapt and use a app that is slower dummied down ugly and unable to delete it and downgrade I swear this app has gone from looking and acting like a Lamborghini to acting and preforming like a Yugo Is it asking too much to bring back the old wooden bookshelf and let us delete this junk off of iOS 8 or are you guys too lazy Since being bundled with iOS 8 the ratings for this app have plummeted due to criticism of being bundledOverall fix this app and allow customization to make it look like the good old days Jailbreaking to avoid delete and reinstall the old version 312 of this app is unacceptable Even if there is another version released called iBooks Classic with the wooden bookshelf UI we will be thankful    From Lamborghini performance to Yugo quality in one update
Love it                Love it
Disappointed that IBook has not been updated The app is lame with its generic look Id much rather pay a few extra dollars to own a book that welcomes you to read rather than IBook which keeps me away from reading an already purchased book    Generic
The app will not let me download and I have tried multiple times This it terrible    It wont
I love inooks but hate the white Needs to be back the way it was Yall making it where no one likes it anymore       iBooks
My install collected 250 MB of nothing despite all media deleted Allows renaming of PDF with slash in name then may delete document if you try to email Loss of files inexplicably Design a la Johnny Ives a barren wasteland as bleak as 1984 Use Kindle instead    Crapplication
It doesnt download                492Abc
Downloaded app then paid for a book to read Book downloaded ok but app wont allow me to access it Dont waste your time or with this Apple really screwed this up    Worst app ever
I think everyone would benefit if the next update or so had the feature of being able to listen to the pronouncement of the word you are defining Please do this feature             The dictionary
I think I books is THE DUMBEST APP EVER It is stupid I cant even figure out how to use it Anna giving birth goober    I hate iBooks
This app is horrendous If it has the ability to save books via iCloud then why will it not do the same for PDFs Horrible During the ios8 update my iPad randomly disabled itself and then the only option left was to system restore Crappy update made me lose almost everything Lost plenty of important documents 5 stars Sorry but this app is only if you want books clearly the developers of this app should have eliminated the PDF section ENTIRELY or provide more insight on it Horrible    WORST
What i most loved about this app is now gonethe wooden bookshelfa bookshelf like that in real life and a whole roompersonal library like that look has been my dream of the lifeso it felt so good to have that look at your fingertips and browse n read books from thatthe new updated look is a total crap like frozen american junk foodi hardly visit the app any moreplease provide those old look atleast as themes guysdamm    I hate the new white background
I love reading on my phone Im not even kidding when I say I stay up all night reading                I love iBooks
I love iBooks I suggest fixing the app so it saves your spot in the book across all devices I am gonna go read now thank you             Love it but suggestion
Can you plz make a screen recorder so we can make cool videos for YouTube                Screen recorder plz
I highly suggest kindle app in place of iBooks Purchased school book through here and it glitches and freezes constantly Just an awful app Not to mention you buy it and your stuck with the book thats doesnt even load    Use kindle app not iBooks
I really enjoy the hyperlink feature in iBooks This allows room for eliminating other publications Everything in one app On the next upgrade can you include a variety of bookshelf colors The pale gray is unattractive and hard on my eyes Any wood stain color would suffice Also can you add a variety of colors to the underlying feature and a text box featureThank you                Preferably wood stain color
I have loved the look of the original design with the wood and have avoided updated for the new design for over a year because of its cold look and lack of realism I accidentally clicked it and now its so BBBad I am actually crying over the look Does anyone know how to reverse an update I am devastated and cant read my book like this I want to slapp whomever made the new design in the face and make them fix it PLEEASSSSEEEE    This new design is actually making me cry
you people need to chill out because u guys are making a stupid choice                all of the neggitive comments
