Anyone else having issues with this update?

I had used the previous version to read an ePub and a PDF, loved it, no issues. These were via Dropbox.

Yesterday, I loaded about a dozen epubs via iTunes. Now I get a 'loading' message every time I go back to the app as it opens my current book, taking between 5 and 10 seconds.

I was seriously considering a Glo but this is now giving me second thoughts. I'm going to load the same books into the Nook app to see if I also have issues. I'm also going to finish the current book I'm reading, delete it,and see if the same problem continues.

Any other thoughts or ideas?

The application (v5.7 or later) currently supports localization for:
English
French
German
Spanish
Italian
Dutch
Portuguese

Prior to v5.7, there was a separate, now discontinued "Kobo International" app that provided localized support. We decided to roll the localization into the primary Kobo application.

It is expected that as Kobo expands into other markets that additional localizations will appear.

I am looking into the timing situation with regards to chapter loading, and so we are going to try and figure out where any decrease in speed is, and if possible, address this to make it as seamless and quick as possible.
