iPhone," Apple's CEO says"


How will the mobileread ebook readers be affected?

Do we care?
I would expect the page animations to be gone, to fit with this skeuomorphism purge but, other than that, should make no difference.

In plain English, iBooks on iOS 7 on an iPhone is as poor as it's ever been and nothing was done to fix it.

I place iBooks in the same bucket as Kindle, Sony, and Nook apps for iOS, or Android, or BB, or whatever mobile OS floats your boat. Talk about minimalist! These apps all share at least one thing in common--almost no formatting options. It amazes me that after all these years none of those companies understand why we want small or no margins on a tiny screen. My guess is that their decision makers never read, at least not on small screened devices.

You've obviously never tried to customize the layout among other things.

Because you don't have an updated version of iBooks?
iBooks is not part of the OS, so why would you expect it to have changed?

None of the non-stock Apple apps (such a trailers, ibooks, Apple store, etc.) have been updated yet because iOS 7 hasn't been released. Given that they removed things like wooden shelving from the OS X version of iBooks and that they purged the new iOS of almost all skeuomorphic elements, I'd be very surprised if iBooks doesn't get a refresh in the fall.

Oh gawd, I'm silly,. When I spoke of it I had completely forgotten about that minor detail. D'uh.

IN the meantime I have downgraded to 6.1.3 on my 4S. I think the OS is probably well suited to the longer screen of the 5 and whatever comes next but for me, theres way too much screen real estate wasting whitespace in some of the built in apps. I also hate the flat icons and the true multitasking which, if you dont remember to kill the apps, eats your battery. After years of having apps killed when you hit the home button and then later sleep when you hit the home button, its really easy to forget thats all over now.

There is a developer beta of the new OS, of which iBooks is not a part. What are you even doing in this thread?

When I started this thread, I should have put up a warning sign by the cages not to get too close. I don't have insurance for bitten hands.
