iBook Downloads

iBook Downloads

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

Nowadays, buyers 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 buyers get cheap ebooks? iPad owners might just have to wait and see.

Amazon's Kindle is the iPad's closest counterpart. At the moment, there is an Amazon Kindle app for the iPad, which generally supplies iPad-specific features, like new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom and scrolling support, and adjustable monitor brightness.

But what about other third-party developers? Surely there will be a huge market potential for affordable ebooks. iPad buyers are no doubt already scouring the net for means to avoid purchasing every single iBook one by one.

Famous among other Apple goods like the iPhone and iTouch, the iPad can be "jail broken," which essentially enables code to be run on the unit which is not certified by Apple. iPad clients can then download several programs which are not made available through the iBookstore and Application Store to access different applications and other low-priced ebooks. iPad jail breaking will most likely be very popular among users.

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 chances for 3rd party developers.

As of these days, the Kindle app is one of the most well known applications, with a Stanza app and Facebook app in the works. Whatever the case may be for the future of the Apple iPad, people are always going to be researching for cheap ebooks. iPad end users will most definitely be looking for alternative solutions that the Apple iBookstore cannot deliver.
