Apple debuted their newest iPad use today… Textbooks. Truly who didn’t see this coming anyway.
iBooks 2 has brought the textbooks update so that now the iPad will have full textbooks available for purchase and download. First thing to mention is that these books are usually a gigabyte or more each which will fill up your iPad pretty quick even if they don’t fill up your backpack. The textbooks all have videos, interactive pictures, and the ability to take notes which will help students as long as it works as advertised.
The best part of the update is the Mac app that allows would be authors to create and publish multitouch books for the iPad and iBooks 2. The publisher app is free on the mac app store and is aimed at putting more content on the web so that this update doesn’t go unused.
