Cheap iBooks



One of the most important dimensions that made the Apple iPhone so extremely common was Apple's intelligent integration of downloadable software from its Application store. Currently, 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, clients will generally have to spend about $12 to $14 per each iBook, which is a bit of a disadvantage, particularly after forking over hundreds of dollars for the iPad itself. So where can iPad users get cheap iBooks? iPad owners might just have to wait and see.

Amazon's Kindle is the iPad's closest counterpart. At present, there is an Amazon Kindle application for the iPad, which generally provides iPad-specific features, like new page turning animations, a library view with pinch, zoom and scrolling support, and adjustable display screen brightness.

But what about other 3rd-party developers? Surely there will be a huge market potential for cheap iBooks. iPad customers are no doubt already scouring the internet for methods to stay away from purchasing every single iBook one by one.

Well-known among other Apple items like the iPhone and iTouch, the iPad can be "jail broken," which essentially permits code to be run on the item which is not authorized by Apple. iPad users can then download several software which are not made available through the iBookstore and App Store to access various apps and other low-priced ebooks. iPad jail breaking will most likely be very popular among buyers.

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 create new chances for third party developers.

As of right now, the Kindle app is one of the most common software, 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 looking for low-priced ebooks. iPad customers will most definitely be searching for alternative solutions that the Apple iBookstore cannot deliver.
