This "stark new redesign" is hideous. I can't stand it. I thought the entire point of iBooks and similar readers, was to simulate reading a book as much as possible. Making everything look barren and clinical does NOT accomplish this. I'll be going elsewhere for my reading needs. This redesign, on top of all the glaring issues I have with the UI itself are it for me. Done. See you later iBooks, get your act together and maybe you can entice me to come back. I won't hold my breath however. Fix this please.

Apple screwed up a good thing. New icon is ugly, and the new design is ugly and basic. App still works well but it looks like an amateur designed the layout with no imagination. Bring back the original book shelf and real looking book border.

I like the old version better. I like how the old version looks more like I'm reading from an actual book and not just from a device or computer. Also, the highlighter before was less harsh and uneven lines similar to real life experience. I had hoped they would leave the update for at least iBooks app. <3

New design :(
One of the main features that I love about iBooks is the way it looks like an open book. It is now gone and I don't like the plain view. I might as well just read a book from any of the other ebook Apps, like Kindle or Nook. They look the same! Please bring back that feature! Not a fan of the new icon or bookshelf either. Miss the other version.

Bad upgrade!
WHY have you taken the wooden bookshelf away? Everything looks cold and sterile, now. Since iOS 7, everything looks like it has no dimension. PLEASE return the wooden bookshelf to improve the look!

New version looks like Kindle app = Not bad
The new version looks a lot like the Kindle app, which is not entirely bad. The Kindle app looks clean and it works well. I think it was good for Apple to copy their design.
