iBook Downloads

One of the most remarkable dimensions that made the Apple iPhone so unbelievably famous was Apple's intelligent integration of downloadable software from its App store. Right now, with the intro 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.

Right now, buyers will generally have to spend 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 users find cheap ebooks? iPad owners might just have to wait and see.

Amazon's Kindle is the iPad's closest counterpart. Right now, there is an Amazon Kindle app for ibook downloads, which generally offers iPad-specific features, like new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom and scrolling support, and adjustable display brightness.

But what about other third-party developers? Surely there will be a massive market potential for affordable ebooks. iPad customers are no doubt already scouring the net for methods to stay away from purchasing 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 product which is not authorized by Apple. iPad customers can then download several programs which are not made available through the iBookstore and App Store to access different 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 ibook downloads." And most people agree that the iPad will definitely develop new chances for 3rd party developers.
