    iCloud does not seem to be working on my iPhone 5. There is nothing under the “Purchased Books” tab. Works fine on my iPad 2, but not my iPhone. Anyone else have this issue?

  • …and still no iTunes 11. 🙁

  • I do, on iPhone 4S though

  • it’s a shame I can only +1 this…

  • I updated and restarted yet my iBooks flip not scroll.

  • I don’t get how sharing works, I have it enabled on some books, and disabled on others..
