is there an option to see what books you recently bought in Tablet? Something like we have for a desk top version. Today, last 7 days etc.

No - there are some filters available in the mobile Library but not those for when added / updated

Graham is kind of right. On my mobile device, I sort by “recent.” What I end up getting is 1) books that were recently used and 2) books that were recently purchased.

In that last screenshot, the first two books were opened and used on my iPad last night. The other book not circled, was used on this device which is my iPhone. The books that are circled were purchased yesterday and have never been opened

I wondered if the new books would need to be downloaded onto my desktop to show up under the “recent’s” but I just made a purchase and it appeared immediately after a restart and sync.

JT is correct that sorting the library by Recent will currently place new purchases in the mix.

The way this happens is a bit of a hack, and it is one that we are hoping to remove in the not-so-distant future. We plan to introduce Added and Last Updated facet filters to the library similar to desktop. That will become the way to look for new resources in your library, they will no longer show up when you sort by recent.

That would be great! Smile
