iBook Downloads

iBook Downloads

One of the most well known dimensions that made the Apple iPhone so incredibly popular was Apple's intelligent integration of downloadable software from its App store. Currently, with the intro of the new Apple iPad, Apple is looking like it will do the same thing in terms of iPad applications and iBook downloads from their iBookstore.

Right now, end users will generally have to pay about $12 to $14 per each iBook, which is a bit of a disadvantage, especially after forking over hundreds of dollars for the iPad itself. So where can iPad consumers discover low priced ebooks? iPad owners might just have to wait and see.

Amazon's Kindle is the iPad's closest counterpart. At this time, there is an Amazon Kindle application for the iPad, which generally provides iPad-specific features, like new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom and scrolling support, and adjustable display screen brightness.

But what about other third-party developers? Surely there will be a big market potential for affordable ebooks. iPad end users are no doubt already scouring the net for ways to keep away from buying every single iBook one by one.

Common among other Apple goods like the iPhone and iTouch, the iPad can be "jail broken," which essentially allows code to be run on the unit which is not certified by Apple. iPad consumers can then download several software which are not made available through the iBookstore and Application Store to access various apps and other affordable ebooks. iPad jail breaking will most likely be very typical among buyers.

Apple is predicting that there will be "a whole 'nother gold rush for developers if they build for iPad." And most people agree with the fact that the iPad will definitely develop new options for 3rd party developers.

As of at this moment, the Kindle application is one of the most well-known software, with a Stanza app and Facebook application in the works. Whatever the case may be for the future of the Apple iPad, people are always going to be researching for low-cost ebooks. iPad buyers will most definitely be looking for alternative solutions that the Apple iBookstore cannot deliver.
