Anyone notice that iBook is slow or choppy on the new iPad?

    I realized that switching between different "folders" in iBook is slower than my old iPad 2.

    I also noticed that sometime it feels choppy, am I the only one?

    I have probably 50-75 books loaded on there and I noticed that the first time I scrolled down, it was a tad choppy. It had to load a LOT of book cover art.

    The second time I launched it and flipped through, it was much smoother - I'm thinking it might've just been the first time loading 50-75 book covers.

    Folder switching also seemed slower until all the covers loaded and now it's a bit snappier.

    It's slightly choppy but it still seems to perform better than the Kindle app and Zinio.

    I haven't had this problem. The apps I've used have been pretty smooth.

    Yes, its slower than I would like but its not a big deal. The one thing that IS a big deal, though, is going from portrait to landscape while a book is open. That takes a full 6 seconds on my iPad. Thus, if I am reading, and accidentally tip the ipad too far to the side (I read in bed a lot so there is a lot of adjusting, and this happens), its 12 seconds before I am back in my preferred orientation.

    new iPad owner, it's really, really slow on my device. I only have two books on my device and it's a good 10 seconds before the books appear on the bookshelf. I left a negative review and am hoping that it's fixed in the latest update.

    I haven't noticed this problem at all in iBooks.

    Wow, sound serious. I tested it, I don't have this problem. May be you want to talk to Apple about it.

    ----------

    Do you have an old iPad 2 to compare?

    Changing between folders in the iPad 2 is fast, but in the new iPad is a little slow.

    I have over 300 books loaded into my iPad and initially it did seem to be a little slow in finding and opening any book that I was looking for.

    Today it seems to be back to normal and is much faster than the iPad 2 version of iBooks was.
