iBooks Download

One of the most important dimensions that made the Apple iPhone so extremely common was Apple's intelligent integration of downloadable apps from its App store. These days, with the introduction of the new Apple iPad, Apple is looking like it will do the same thing in terms of iPad programs and iBooks download from their iBookstore.

At this moment, buyers will generally have to pay about $12 to $14 per each iBooks download, which is a bit of a disadvantage, specially after forking over hundreds of dollars for the iPad itself. So where can iPad buyers discover cheap ebooks? iPad keepers 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 supplies iPad-specific features, like new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom and scrolling support, and adjustable screen brightness.

But what about other third-party developers? Surely there will be a big market potential for low priced ebooks. iPad users are no doubt already scouring the internet for means to stay away from purchasing every single iBook one by one.

Common among other Apple products like the iPhone and iTouch, the iPad can be "jail broken," which essentially permits code to be run on the unit which is not authorized by Apple. iPad users can then download several apps which are not made available through the iBookstore and Application Store to access various apps and other low-priced ebooks. iPad jail breaking will most likely be very popular among end 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 opportunities for 3rd party developers.

As of now, the Kindle application is one of the most well known programs, 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 buyers will most definitely be researching for alternative solutions that the Apple iBookstore cannot provide.
