Just refreshed the store and it's up for DL.
Thanks. I don't really use these forums a lot and had no idea how to do that.
Awesome!!! Thanks so much for posting this!
Of course it's front and center on the App Store in iTunes now
Very easy. Click the down arrow and you see this:
Nice, thanks for the heads up.
Thanks! Just downloaded it.
i no this may seem like a stupid ? but can u only access the ibook store through the app? will it be available within the itunes store thats on your desktop or macbook?
The "Audiobooks" section of iTunes should be transforming into just "Books" or "iBooks" on April 3rd. It will be accessible via computer.
I never knew that. Thanks.
Yep, I wish they'd just switch it over already; I'm sure Audiobooks is the least used category in iTunes currently, and I'd love to have some books download for syncing on launch day.
WIll the ibooks app work outside of America? I know it won't be available in Itunes and I know the Ibookstore won't be available, thus part of app too, but would the app itself, the part that lets you read epubs, work, if you somehow managed to get a copy of the app?
Kind of disappointing that you can't read your eBooks/iBooks/whatever directly on iTunes.
No reason why it wouldn't, it's not area specific for the application itself once downloaded. You'd just have to have iTunes 9.1 and have ePubs imported already and make it so they'd sync.
And mickbab, I can feel your pain there. I think it's mainly because Apple would have to develop an interface for it (most likely wouldn't be very widely used), but depending on how we can access the ePub files, we can use external tools to view them like this.
To me, it just seems like having iTunes to store music, but only being able to listen to it on an iPod. Applications pose a different problem, because they require the iPhone/Pod/Pad interface to function properly, but I can't see why they aren't building in a book reader function.
Well, do we know for sure that they aren't incorporating any basic reader? I know it hasn't been announced, but we may be pleasantly surprised tomorrow; or whenever we can finally import/download an ePub.
People have been importing their ePubs since the iTunes update came out.
Yes, that's how I knew that iTunes currently doesn't have book reading capabilities. Here's hoping that they can surprise us in the near future.
Apple's iBooks App Now Available
Apple's iBooks application is now available (iTunes link) on the App Store. The Free download offers both a book reader as well as an online bookstore to purchase new books. Features include:
- Complimentary copy of Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
- Read a free sample of any book on the iBookstore
- Change font size, pick from five different included type faces
- Highlight your favorite passages with the built-in bookmarking feature
- Accessibility features such as speaking words on a given page
You must own an iPad to use iBooks and the iBookstore is only available to U.S. customers.

The lack of reading features in iTunes was what suggested to me that the iBookstore wouldn't be an equal part of the iTunes Store at all. Maybe if and when they do replace the Audiobooks section they'll also toss in the reader. Or maybe it is already in there, but it needs to be activated by some internal time trigger for April 3.
Nice looking Logo!
And a few other starter iPad App's...
The Local Apple Specialists are having "bagels" this saturday
Damn can't use it on my iPhone. Guess I'll just have to brake down and buy an iPad. Nice one Steve!
Nice...complimentary Winnie-the-Pooh... Well, I guess it's better than nothing...
