"Love it. Convenient, well organized, great program."

October 13, 2015  |  By Jason Boone

2015-10-13 22:40:20  |  By Jason Boone

 |  Version: Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

Pros

Simple, well organized, user interface. The library helps keep your epub files neat and easy to find and use. I just think it's the perfect program. No nonsense. No confusion. Just straight-forward and easy to use.

Cons

Doesn't read PDFs, which I was fully aware of upon installation. No matter, I use Nuance to read my PDFs. Non much to say as far as the cons.

Summary

I highly suggest this program if you need a program to read epub files. It organizes your library and has a minimal, but essential, user interface. Try it out.

"Awful, horrible, garbage."

April 26, 2014  |  By HTRC

2014-04-26 13:06:13  |  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

2013-05-02 16:02:53  |  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.

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

January 19, 2013  |  By MarkTwainWasRight

2013-01-19 07:36:27  |  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.)

2012-12-11 01:52:31  |  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.

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

2012-10-17 04:26:25  |  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.
