This app is atrociaous. I cannot believe the developers haven't put even a little bit more effort into their software. Kinda sad to see an adobe product THIS terrible.

I downloaded a book for school which can only be opened with this app and am considering buying a physical copy of the book because the app is just so bad. Can't write notes 50% of the time(not a joke, it is random or at least unintuitive), can't copy paste, can't change font size, terrible UI, book marks are messy and much more. It's bad. Really bad. I cannot express how bad this application is. I wish I could give a negative review because of how much grief this app has caused me but I keep sunk cost fallacying myself into using it because I spent 20 bucks on a book. I have never felt so much hatred towards an app.

USELESS! Can't highlight in multiple colours, can't copy or add notes, looks like an old windows 98 program. I have never worked with something so incompetent in my entire life. This is like 30 years behind. Not to mention the lag is horrible. I was forced to use this because of my textbook. If I could have avoided using this I would!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never review software, but decided to search the web for a place to write one just to warn the world about this useless program. Compared to the 3-4 other e-readers I've used, Adobe's UX feels 50 years behind. Formatting is terrible. Text interactions like note taking and highlighting are extremely basic. And the program memory gets bogged down after 5-10 minutes and I have to restart it. Every. Single. Time. Adobe makes some good software, but this is not it. There should be a warning to potential downloaders. Do better!

Horrible program. It is full of stupid errors like not being able to highlight a sentence that contains italics. You have to highlight the first half of the sentence, then the italicized words and then the rest of the sentence, all separately instead of being able to select the whole sentence and then click highlight. There's no logical reason for this. Even simple acts like flipping the page is difficult. If you use your mouse then you cannot use your key arrows without pressing them repeatedly until it works. Once you use your key arrows, you cannot use your mouse to click on next page without having to click it repeatedly. Why? No logical reason. I will never again use an Adobe Reader unless I am forced to. I've never used a worse epub reader. It is actually shocking how much they managed to mess up a such a simple program.

This product is steaming pile of sh*t. It is by far the worst digital reading tool I have ever seen, and I've been at University for 4 years...I seriously cannot believe they would pass this as a product. It's clunky, the pages don't load, word find doesn't work properly. My 206 page text book came up as one giant page of text. AVOID!! This is the worst software I've ever seen. WTF Adobe!?

4.5 version. Not worth even 1 star. I had no other option because local library ebook was viewable only in this junk. The worst part: when the computer authorization does not work, the fix requires PhD in IT. Even the fix is not stable. Even worse part: the viewer does not scale the font and one book page cannot fit the screen. Scroll does not work either. Adobe engineers should benchmark Google Earth. I wish all the Adobe developers be fired.

Terrible! I wish I'd never bought a book via Adobe Digital Editions. It's useful for scholarly work. Clumsy to navigate, you can't highlight or print anything. Stupid. The books I've downloaded to read from my uni library - couldn't read them. Hopeless.

What in gods name is this POS???!!! I buy ebooks through the Kobo store and it seems I have to install ADE in order to transfer my books to my ereader later, as I don't have my ereader with me right now. I thought I might read some of them on my Mac, too. Bu this System 9 looking installer does nothing. Literally. All I get is a message saying "Verifying Digital Editions 4.5 Installer.pkg". Verifying that is embarrassingly utter crap in 2016, I assume. Unbelievable. I haven't seen this kind of stuff literally since System 9. WTF is this crapware?! If/when it doesn't work, and that leaves you unable to read what you've paid for, where do you have to turn? Torrents? What a joke.
