I can't boot up iBooks at all on my iPhone 3G or my iPad. It will load up the library but after a few seconds it will crash to the home screen. I tried reinstalling the app and that fixed the problem for a few weeks but now it's happening again.


Has anyone else had this happen?

    I had problems with games on my ibook. I couldn't solve it, so I've discovered Gameduell and keep on playing online games.

    And it's still a funny hobby.

    Does that have anything to do with iBooks the app?

    I have a similar problem. I have an iPad (1) 16gb WIFI/3G. Every time I open iBooks and try to open an iPhoto album saved as a PDF, it opens for about 5 seconds and then quits. It then reverts bak to the home screen.


    I am using OS 4.3.3


    I have no problem opening and viewing this file on my iPhone 4 Verizon 16gb, on an iPod that a friend has, or on my iMac with Snow Leopard. 


    Something is wrong with either the iBooks App for the iPad or I have a bad iPad.

    I have a 2G iPod Touch running iOS 4.2.1, I can get into my iBooks library, but when I try to go to the iBooks Store it crashes and I end up with the home screen.

    I did notice last night after getting onto iTunes that Apple made changes to iBooks that prevent you from buying books through iTunes unless you have iOS 4.3.3 (of course I don't know if this was an option available before iOS4.3.3 came around - never tried - but didn't need to then), I'm guessing for those of us who can't upgrade to iOS 4.3.3 we are screwed as far as buying new books. Unless it is just a problem with Apple's iBooks web site that is causing it to crash.

    So it looks like Amazon Kindel app will be getting all my book puchasing business!!!

    I am having the same problem you describe, still looking for an answer...

    I, too, am having the same problem. I have to download the book each week to be able to read it.

    Hi Guys,

    I have a simple fix. Don't restore your iPad. Just remove the iBooks app from your iPad. Then download it again from the App Store on your iPad. Works great!

    Nope. The problem continues. Tried it a couple of times to no avail.
