    Can you take a couple of screenshots? I absolutely cannot live without iBooks (only use the Kindle app for library ebooks) and am wondering what it will be like when I finally get on iOS 7.

    Here are a couple of screenshots of the newly updated iBooks app. image-3480154996.jpg image-2056609605.jpg As you can see, the simulated wooden bookshelves are gone.

    image-541773096.jpg The app icon has had a complete iOS 7 makeover as well.

    I wonder if the authors of the books would even make their books have a iOS 7 look. That would be hilarous.

    It looks like the icons are bigger too. Can you still group your books like the old version?

    The icon is ok but the inside is just plain boring. Give us an option to add some background color.

    :thumbsdown:The new Ibooks Is horrible, White background? erhh, I loved the look of the wooden bookshelves! and dark color theme! Why are apple fixing what aint broke!
    Luckily I kept old version of the IPA so I could revert! Read the reviews for ibooks in the app store 98% of people hate it! (do Apple ever actually listen to consumers?) If an apple exec s#@>^d on the floor, Im sure some apple fans would say "that's amazing"....

    I'm no fan of the "beautiful new redesign" either, but the most important thing is that everything works exactly as before.
