iBooks 1.1 Update Not Doing All It Promised with PDFs?

Share This:


TUAW has a recent post up stating that the iBooks 1.1 update is not delivering all the new PDF-related features that it promises.  As shown in TUAW’s screencap above, the two features in particular that are not working with PDFs are the ability to flip through pages and to highlight text on pages.

I’ve had a quick try with a couple of different PDFs on my iPad and found that these features do not work for me.  Just as TUAW’s article suggests, pages turn via swiping not flipping as eBooks do, and the text highlighting functionality just isn’t there at all.

Are any of you seeing any different with the iBooks 1.1 update?  Hopefully this is something that will be addressed in another update for the app soon.
