Hello all

I have just updated my iPad 2 to iOS6 and most things seem to be working fine, the main thing I haven't been able to figure out is in iBooks, for some reason whenever I swipe to go to the next page it skips to the next chapter, considering that each chapter is 30-40 pages long it makes reading the book a little bit challenging.
Has anyone else encountered this problem and what can I do to fix it?


Cheers

I don't use iBooks much, Kindle APP and MegaReader get most of my usage, but I can't find anything in iBooks settings that would control that, and mine doesn't behave that way. FWIW I have an iPad2 running iOS 6 also.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I've also tried replicating the issue without luck. Have you tried different books, or new added ones? Reinstalling the app wouldn't be too much of a loss if you save bookmarks with iCloud.

Touch the Edit button and delete the book from your collections. After that you can redownload.

My main issue now after the update is that iBooks take a long time to open pages that are graphic intensive. I use iBooks for the manuals I create for my job and I view them in iBooks. Prior to IOS 6 and iBooks 3.0, it was very fast opening. Now with the update, it opens blank pages and if you wait, it will fill in the page with the graphics. This was not a problem before the updates.

I love Apple products, but there needs to be more testing before they release these updates. They are becoming more like Microsoft with bloated apps. Steve Jobs would be turning over in his grave knowing that the user is experiencing these kinds of issues. One of the basis' of his success was that the user has a good experience with any of the apps on the product. This is slowly going away and is what I got away from Microsoft and moved to Apple.

I'm in hope that these forums come to the attention of the Apple development staff in an effort to fix buggy software. We'll see...
