Apple releases iBooks 1.1 for iPhone


Apple has launched iBooks 1.1 for the iPhone which works with  iOS4. When you install it you are asked:

Do you want to store your bookmarks and notes in your iTunes store account for syncing across devices?

Sadly in Ireland there is only those free Project Gutenberg ebooks, lets hope Jobs does not keep us waiting as long as we had to wait for movies…
So what’s new? Well here is what is promised:

• In addition to iPad, iBooks is now available on any iPhone or iPod with iOS 4.
• Open and read PDF documents from Mail. PDF documents will be added to your library and appear on the PDF bookshelf. You can even search PDFs for words or phrases and bookmark your favorite pages.
• Take advantage of new ways to bookmark. In addition to highlighting a word or a passage, you can now also add notes or bookmark an entire page with the new page ribbon.
• Keep your bookmarks, notes, and your current page wirelessly in sync between iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with the new automatic bookmark syncing feature.
• See your book pages in a new font, called Georgia.
• Read your books on white or sepia colored pages.
• Choose left or fully justified text layout from Settings.
• Read pages with greater ease by increasing to even larger font sizes.
• Enjoy greater stability and better performance.
