Breaking Bad: Alchemy available in iBooks, a must have for fans of the show


Haven't seen the show (yet) but I have seen a trailer used in the show. Part of the Sony Pictures Studios tour I took when I attended a Jeopardy taping. I'll need to watch Breaking Bad now (and get the app.)

I bought the iBook and so far have not been able to download it. I have 3.4 GB of available storage on my iPad and it tells me that's not enough space for the book. They are crazy if they think one iBook can take up more than 20 percent of my iPad's total storage.

I know this is very delayed, but I hope you got this figured out.

The biggest problem with the book is that due to all the inset video and such, it's not capable of compressing that, but other content is. In order to install, you need VERY close to 4 gigs, once it's done it only takes up 1.8, thank god.

I don't know what I'll do when it updates!!
