What a ripoff
I enjoy Wodehouse's books a lot and was thrilled to buy this one. Now that I have, I want a refund. Most of the features don't work as promised. The type quality is really bad on the iPad. There is no way to "flip" pages. Each chapter is one long page that you have scroll up and down. And if you press any of the buttons on the bottom, the reading pane resets to the first page. Very inconvenient and irritating. I have iBooks that I am very happy with. This one I will not recommend to anyone.

Plusses and minuses. It's terrific to have so much of the master's output in my pocket and available any time, any place. The problem is there is so little reader convenience in the app. The bookmarking—what there is of it—is pathetically awkward. What's worse, there is nothing in the way of breadcrumbing, so you have no way of getting back to where you left off when the app loses your place for you—which it does constantly.
Apparently this is not the fault of the developer but is a problem inherent in what tools he has to work with in the development process. The same inadequacies show up in other book apps I have just purchased.
Hopefully Apple will improve the book usability for apps, especially for collections such as this.
High marks for the wealth of content and appreciation for letting us have the tools that are available for developers to employ.
More usability features need to be made available to developers.
