iBooks. Something you may not know
After opening up my iPad I was anxious to try all the features out. The one that gave me most interest was iBooks. Being able to read on the device was just an added bonus with all the other things it could do.
So at first glance the iBooks app has a lot of potential. Whether it’s reading a how to book or some vampire love story. What blew me away was the genius that was already inside. Winnie the Pooh. Such a classic book. I remember my mother reading this to me years ago. Apple made a smart choice providing a sample book with it’s free app. They really thought about their consumers needs. Not only does this cover the young but I’m sure parents appreciated it.
Now to explore the iBooks store. In just minutes you can purchase a best seller. From what I’ve seen the best sellers run around $9.99. What a great price. Many would say they like the feel of a book in their hands but I have to disagree. When I pick up my iPad, knowing I have 15+ books at my disposal in such a tiny machine makes my head explode. Yes Kindle by Amazon has done this already but Apple just did it better. Sorry Amazon.
Back to the iBook store. When you open the store you’ll notice something very similar to the App Store. Free and Paid items. Leave it to Apple to not only provide you with a classic like Winnie the Pooh but also others such as Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Peter Pan, and much more. FREE FREE FREE. I downloaded all of them instantly. When I say instant I’m not kidding. On a WiFi network the book downloads in a few seconds.
This is a home run for Apple yet again. I forever will be in debt because of Apple, but with a smile on my face.
