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?
I never knew that. Thanks.
At one time, iTunes' Source list carried an Audiobooks entry. This has changed to read Books in iTunes 9.1. When you select this entry you'll see not only any files that have been tagged as audiobooks, but also ePub documents that you've added to iTunes--either via iTunes' iBookstore or by dragging ePub documents into iTunes that you've obtained from other sources. Currently there's no way to read ePub documents within iTunes.
Books are also reflected in the tabs that appear when you select a connected iPod or iPhone (and, surely, an iPad). Currently, that tab shows only audiobooks, but presumably it will also display e-books when you select Books with an iPad attached.
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?
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.
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.
