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.

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.

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.

This really doesn't look much different from V3. The main difference is, I suppose, that it transmits your private data privately. That's good, but why it's taken until V4 is a question worth asking! What's worse is that many booksellers and libraries use ADE to transmit ebooks to their customers and in my experience with V4 so far, V4 is very unstable. In fact, I've had to follow the recommendation of one bookseller and go back to V3, which the seller said "is more stable." Basically, V4 was not able to download certain ebooks properly and as a result the entire application would crash if those ebooks were opened. It actually downloaded the full file but because, according to the seller, the metadata from the publisher was not complete, ADE crashed. At any rate, I really don't like ADE as a general ebook reader. It's too chatty. I pay for my ebooks so I don't see why my reading habits or whatever need to be collected. The problem is that there really isn't a good ebook reader for mac as far as I know.

It looks like a really fugly attempt to copy Calibre, but to even compare them is unfair to Calibre because this is so limited in comparison.

NO uninstall feature, NO uninstall tool, NO uninstall step-by-step support page...several UNanswered uninstall "support" questions in their forum (REALLY Adobe, is that the best that you can do)...I am baffled that a major software company that builds MacOS apps would deliver those apps using an installer and NOT providing any straightforward removal option(s)! In any event, here is a post from earlier today asking for help with the SAME issue that I am having with trying to uninstall this junk software (hopefully he/she gets an answer soon): https://forums.adobe.com/message/6570142
