    Mostly work, so I can't (at least not without redacting) But it's nice to be able to categorize docs now.

    I just finished creating a couple of collections myself. Seems to work fine - very easy. I also like the way you select and move books in the icon view. They've combined the select with select and move, whereas before you could move the book without it indicating it was selected.

    Another nice touch is that search is now available in the icon view (drag shelf down - same as on iPhone/iPad).

    Now, for wish list: nested collections (unless I missed something).

    This is a great update. The only part I feel could be improved is detecting left/right swiping to move between collections. For me, half the time I don't do it quite right. If the swipe isn't straight right-left it thinks you are just moving up/down. Would be nice if you could swipe the title bar left/right to switch collections, since the title bar does not move up and down. Hopefully I will get used to it over time.

    Moving through your collections by swiping left/right is a nice touch.

    I had the same problem, but hope my fingers will train to be more precise as we go.

    And in a typical sense of entitlement, I was really happy with the new collections for about 5 minutes, and then started wanting to put items in more than one collection - more like tags than folders. Ah well, I still really prefer collections to the original massive bookshelf.
