    "Awful, horrible, garbage."

    April 26, 2014   |   By HTRC

    Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

    Pros

    Sometimes you can actually read and move to another page - amazing!!!

    Cons

    Complete garbage ware. Either this was developed by chimpanzees, or they purposely set out to design the world's worst e-reader software.

    Summary

    It's so bad, you should actually consider not buying or reading a particular book if it's available only in Adobe Digital Editions.

    "Garbage - Worse than useless."

    May 02, 2013   |   By jjhardesty

    Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

    Pros

    Installing and then deleting gives you something to do

    Cons

    Buggy, refuses to open ASCM files

    Summary

    Version 1.7 was OK, not the greatest, not user friendly, difficult to use initially, but it shines when compared to version 2.0. This latest version offers nothing to recommend it. Never opened an ascm file for me: error messages say my device is 'not registered' (when I've been using it with v1.7 for about 2 years) or there is a missing or corrupt file, when my procedure was the same as it had been with the earlier version. Always some reason why it is unable to do the job it was supposed to do. Atotal waste.

    "Simple and useful"

    March 18, 2013   |   By Solun1

    Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

    Pros

    Simplicity of use (imediatelly understood UI)

    Cons

    Better on larger screens (not that great on my 18,5 inch display)
    You have to have an Adobe account (free)

    Summary

    Fast, easy and free way to view your ebooks on PC

    "Major flaw:Broken for more than one user on a computer"

    January 19, 2013   |   By MarkTwainWasRight

    Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

    Pros

    Looks nice.

    Cons

    Not very robust.

    Summary

    If you have multiple users on the same computer, ADE will not recognize plugged in eBook readers; eBook bookshelves disappear. (no permutation of plugging and restarting the program fixes this.)

    "Too many limitations."

    December 11, 2012   |   By 7LaVerne

    Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

    Pros

    None that justify using this program rather than Calibre.

    Cons

    Customizable options are few. NG for PDF.

    Summary

    Following another posting's recommendation, I tried Calibre. Infinitely superior.

    "A good epub reader but still no good for pdf"

    October 17, 2012   |   By Bubbecus

    Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

    Pros

    I like the new theme. For epub there is good flipping of the 'view' pages.

    Cons

    Even the manual is in epub and not pdf. Shame adobe!!
    Even the C-Net screen view is out of date

    Summary

    May as well stay with Calibre.

    Updated on Oct 17, 2012

    C-Net. Can't even select the version (2) for this review.
