Dropbox to iPad 3 problem

A friend has the iPad 3 and I've always put books in his Dropbox so that he could open them in IBooks which is our preferred reading app. I've never had a problem, and neither has he.....until recently.


My app still works fine, however, lately, whenever I email or put a book into his Dropbox folder, and he chooses "open in IBooks" as always, the books refuse to load...sometimes there will be a brief "flash" but they will not load.

I tried troubleshooting, nothing has changed,the books work fine on my app.

Whether emailing or putting into Dropbox, they just don't want to load

Anyone have a similar problem or possible solution?

Thanks in advance

I would try deleting and re-installing the iBook app, but maybe you've tried that already?

Does the "open in" feature work with other ePub compatible apps?

Solved the problem........

We first re-started it, when that didn't work, we re-set it, using the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time until the apple logo appeared...

Simple fix to a frustrating problem! I was thinking it was thinking it was something much more complicated than it was......

Glad you fixed it. I'll try to remember that reset trick...

There was a reset trick? I thought that was the screenshot combination.
Well, we all learn something every day

same thing, except you hold both buttons down for a longer period of time.

Takes a few seconds for the "apple" to appear for a reset......
