[IOS] v2.0.0 iOS issues

Hello @ all,
same problem here - all books are gone without warning!
But additional issues here:

- Before the update I could one-tap on the "On device" button and download several books at the same time - Now I have to make three clicks all over the screen for one book and wait until it is downloaded until I can click the next one! Or is there somewhere a collection function to download several books at once?
For me this means literally hours to download all my books with 3 clicks each again and then also manually set them as read - simply not acceptable.

- Overview (Tap on "Back" in the top left corner, usual view when not connected) does not show the thump nail pictures, just white placeholders and title + author in black writing. Could not find anything disabled in the settings that would explain this.
Also I am disconnected every time I look at the overview - when I change the view, I then have to connect again every time.

Also I am interested in the explanation for the "subscription model" change.

Not happy at all!

I just ran into the same issue as LostJen where trying to log in to the Content Server pops up a request for username and password but the OK option does not light up so no way to actually connect.

Fully agree to all of the above - had exactly the same experience with the new version 2.0
Lost all of my books on the devices and had to reload them from my pc - what a pain ...
Content server cannot be connected to from within CC, only via the normal browser.
If CC is turning into a subscription model - I'm definitely out - that is a no go!!!

iOS version 2.0.0 was just released. Are you running Android then? Below is a screenshot of the iOS App Store for CC.



Edit - Content Server is OPDS. Just a fancier name.
You're right, I've just seen it.

Unfortunately I updated mine before reading this, but haven't opened it. If subscription, I, too, will stop using it. It is so much worse than the great Android version it was almost not worth it before the subscription model.

If I don't open it, is it possible to go back to a previous version in IOS?

My Calibre Companion updated on my iPad Pro, and all of my books are gone from the app.

All 2,332 books are still in my iPad mini CC ap, which I've not updated.

I'm not happy.
It did the same on my iPhone 8 when I updated Calibre Companion last night.

It deleted over 2500 books! After I added them all back in, the search feature and the Filter options find just a handful of the Authors, Titles, Series, etc.
I can't use any of them to find the Titles or Authors that ARE there! And with over 2500 books it's almost impossible to find a specific Title, or ALL the Books by an Author.

These issues need to be fixed ASAP!!

Please comment back on the numerous issues people have left you here on these issues.

I have one iPad that unfortunately was set to automatically update apps so everything was wiped from cc. My other three device are fortunately okay. If we do not update, can the developer change the wireless and content server connection within the main Calibre program thus rendering the older version useless? I recently ran into the password issue that others have mentioned.

Hi everyone,

Sorry you are so upset. This is a serious mistake that we are currently working on fixing. I'm doing my best. This new update was to get the codebase up to swift standards. I did not anticipate the issues with it deleting everything in everyone's library.

As for the crazy difference in prices. We were just running different pricing models to check out the differences in conversion rates.

The subscription model is best for the business as a whole and will incentivize the team to work on a lot of updates. Unfortunately, our first update was crap so I'm sure that left a bad taste in your mouth. If you do not wish to continue with the updates I completely understand. The change is going to be to $.99 per month. We have had a lot of community members add lots of great suggestions to the trello board which we plan to immplement. Hope you all stick around to see all the new (much better) updates.

I think it's a real shame to force people to use yet another system to comment on changes; one where I can't even view without registration

Update:
one-tap download works now - still downloading and marking as read each and every book manually.

Overview shows now thump nail pictures, but not from the earlier downloaded ones. Had to delete the books without thump nail pictures and when downloaded again, those books also showed the thump nails.
But am still disconnected every time I go to the overview and have to connect again in order to view another view.

Wanted to sort the overwiev according to the date I added them to the main calibre but this does not work! I do not know how it's sorted but definitly not according to when I added the books to the main calibre.

Surprisingly I never had problems to connect with the content server to transfer, that worked always without a hitch.
