I really hate the new iBook app update, its ruined my ebook library
Anyone else hate the new iBook app look and feel since the new update. I miss the old bookshelf look. Now it’s impossible to enjoy. I have over 300 iBooks, and I hate having to see every ebook I’ve purchased. Before the update, I just had whatever book I was currently reading on my iPad on my iPhone, plus some samples of books I was thinking of buying. Now I see every book, even if they haven’t been downloaded to my phone. I don’t want to hide the books because that’d hide them on my iPad too.
My 2nd generation iPad is so old, they stopped providing updates for it a while back, on the iPad I still have the bookshelf look in iBooks, which I love, but I’m gonna have to get a new iPad soon since mine keeps crashing and the screen is unresponsive to touch in areas.
All the books on my iPad I have manually put them in order by author and in order by place in the series, which took a while.
On my iPhone, ever since the update all the books are out of order, and even if I put sort them by author the books are still not in order by where they fall in the series. Rather than seeing book 123456, I see book 624351, which drives me nuts.
Trying to manually sort the books is a pain because there are so many and there’s no way to select multiple books at once and more them around. I’ve been told that if I had a new iPad, whatever changes I made to the book library would also show up on my iPhone iBook library, does anyone know if this is true? Because it probably would be a little bit easier to manually sort them on a larger screen.
Has anyone heard any rumors of Apple is ever gonna fix iBooks or bring back the bookshelf?
