Have you read the Overview page at Maplepop's site? http://www.maplepop.com/web/mr/overview.php

They tout the SE/CE bundle for split view multitasking.

No, I compared the product descriptions in the Apple App Store. I was hoping somebody familiar with the differences could point out what I was missing, because it seemed to me (with my limited understanding of the product) to be a pointless bundle. I’ve read the overview page now, and the top part is just the same description as the App Store descriptions. Why would you need CE if you have SE which has “all features”?

Which version do you use, and why? Thanks.

Is this to get around the limit of only one instance of an app running at a time? Could you tell me why I would need to utilize Split View? Thank you.

I have the SE version on both iPads and on my iPhone. I wanted something that could handle both ePubs and PDFs as a replacement for that piece of junk iBooks.

Sorry, I can't help with the Split View as I don't understand why there would be a need, myself. My eReader usage is very basic: just reading the books; no notes, annotation, etc.

IMHO you are missing nothing.

Split View or Slide Over could perhaps be useful for „scientific“ reading - for cross-reading and so on.

I am using SE. I have a rather large library on Calibre, which I access/download using the ‘Exchange’ OPDS. I have noticed a few things that I am not sure if they are due to “user error”, or bugs…or, simply, requests for additions/improvements.

When I first look at a book in OPDS, I see the cover, tags, and (Calibre) description of the book. Once downloaded, there is the cover and the tags are in the index of tags, but I can find no way to see/read the Calibre description.

Second, if, by accident, I go to download a book already in my SE library, it downloads a second copy. There is no warning or indication of this.

Last, I often switch between my iPad and iPhone. If I forget to manually sync a book, I am out of luck when going to other device. Is there no way to have it sync automatically when closing.

For me it’s long tap and context menu Get Info

The existing book is updated for me
