Temporary Solution:

For everyone, IF you can purchase the same PDF ebook title from any one source - vendor, distibutor, [your choice here] - that does not download only into the Adobe(TM) Digital Editions software; then go for it.

Preceding Thought:

From the Top View, Adobe is tackling international legal situations - which for this period in time, between 1989 (first burgeoning year of public internet access) and now 15 Nov 2012 - is still an extreme newborn situation, those very few individuals who sincerely care for All Cultures generally, relative to the total population of the entire earth are managing to guide this legal (appearance of a) nightmare.

The single most signficant peave I have is assuming one way is always the best way, this includes proprietary formats that do not use a single Global Multimedia Interconnectivity Standard in the core - which for reference the World Wide Web Consortium ("W3C" colloquially) was created to help prevent mitigate the use of any one proprietary format and build a globally-connecting increasingly more simple to learn and use system of technical web languages.

However, from seeing (of those I experienced and not all inclusive) how Apple, Adobe, Autodesk, Amazon, and all small and medium sized business are interacting, all this cognitive dissoance is very similar Globally how we as individuals are thinking locally; trying to "Solve problems to simplify Life".

If there is feature you would like to see, request through their feedback channels - constructively, not destructively; and with patience. These modern tools are not easy for any one person alone to make.

Sorry for the rant folks, early morning - past midnight -, a mind that works like a very very deep sponge, and a severely horizontal trans-disciplinary mindset.

Sincerely: Cheers, and Thank you for being You-nique!

I use Overdrive on both my Ipad and my Iphone and it works fine with Adobe Digital Editions.  I mostly use if with my library which downloads directly to the app.  For other books I can download it to my computer and then transfer it by emailing it to myself at an account I can access on the ipad (just click on the downloaded file to open it in Overdrive).  I can also download directly by purchasing on the web using the ipad.

Yep nickl20263810 is right.

More instructions syncing ebooks with Adobe DE on iPad here:

I hope this helps someone else out but I recently came accross the Adobe Digital Editions app within the app store and downloaded it to my iPad. At first I was pulling my hair out trying to sync ebooks across using the Adobe DE application on my macbook and it was not recognising it no matter what I did. This in itself is the issue, this method might work for Kindles, Kobos and other electronic book readers but it will not work for Apple devices.

What Apple fail to mention is that you need to transfer content across using the iTunes library (like music and video media). First of all, get the location of your ebook on your computer (you can right click on it in the DE library and get item info). Then open up iTunes and get to your apps area, select the Adobe DE app.

Then scroll down to the bottom and look for the "Add button". Then go looking for the location on your computer with the ebook file is (you should have got this information from the Adobe DE application on your computer). You add the ebook and then hit the "sync" button.

Voilla!

Not very clear on Adobe and Apple's part but there you go.

‌yes I just noticed this functionality later today. Problem is that the Adobe dev team need to put ALOT more development work into the DE app (for iOS at least). It just cannot stack up against the other readers out there, it sucks pretty bad.

after much frustration I went and downloaded blue fire reader. Wow it just poops all over DE....
