iBook Downloads

iBook Downloads

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

Currently, customers 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 end users discover low priced ebooks? iPad keepers might just have to wait and see.

Amazon's Kindle is the iPad's closest counterpart. Now, there is an Amazon Kindle app for the iPad, which generally offers 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 big market potential for low priced ebooks. iPad clients are no doubt already scouring the internet for methods to keep away from buying every single iBook one by one.

Famous among other Apple products like the iPhone and iTouch, the iPad can be "jail broken," which essentially enables code to be run on the item which is not authorized by Apple. iPad buyers can then download several apps which are not made available through the iBookstore and Application Store to access different applications and other cheap ebooks. iPad jail breaking will most likely be very common 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 that the iPad will definitely develop new chances for third party developers.

As of these days, the Kindle app is one of the most popular apps, with a Stanza application and Facebook app in the works. Whatever the case may be for the future of the Apple iPad, people are always going to be exploring for low priced ebooks. iPad customers will most definitely be searching for alternative solutions that the Apple iBookstore cannot deliver.
