iBooks for iPad Update: PDF Documents Now on Separate Shelf
      06/21/10 07:31 PM

With iOS 4 release today Apple updated the iBooks app for the iPad. There are many improvements and new features, most noticeably, now PDF files are easily synced to the iPad via the iTunes just like ebooks, and there is a separate tab in the iBooks that puts the PDF files on a separate book shelf. We tested a few ebooks in PDF format, all looked great with graphics and formatting intact.

What's New in Version 1.1

? In addition to iPad, iBooks is now available on any iPhone or iPod with iOS 4.
? Open and read PDF documents from Mail. PDF documents will be added to your library and appear on the PDF bookshelf. You can even search PDFs for words or phrases and bookmark your favorite pages.
? Take advantage of new ways to bookmark. In addition to highlighting a word or a passage, you can now also add notes or bookmark an entire page with the new page ribbon.
? Keep your bookmarks, notes, and your current page wirelessly in sync between iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with the new automatic bookmark syncing feature.
? See your book pages in a new font, called Georgia.
? Read your books on white or sepia colored pages.
? Choose left or fully justified text layout from Settings.
? Read pages with greater ease by increasing to even larger font sizes.
? Enjoy greater stability and better performance.

The iBooks update is free and available from the iTunes App Store:
