iBooks for iPad Now Available in US App Store

Apple's iBooks and integrated iBookstore is now available for pre-download from the iTunes App Store [Free - iTunes link]. Due to licensing and the other insanities that keep publishing in the dark ages, it's US only for the time being, and while its purported 60,000 ePub-format catalog isn't the biggest, the integration with Project Gutenberg and ability to pull in other free ePub content will certainly keep you busy while Apple keeps ramping it up.

iBooks requires the just-released iTunes 9.1 to manage and sync iBooks ePub and DRM-free ePub content, so make sure you're all up to date. Then get reading and let us know how the experience compares to Amazon's Kindle, Sony's eReader, Barnes & Noble's Nook, and -- why not! -- one of them paper and ink real book jobbies!

iTunes 9.1 now separates universal binaries, iPhone + iPod touch, and iPad apps in Album View

iTunes 9.1 now separates universal binaries, iPhone + iPod touch, and iPad apps in Album View

[gallery link="file"]

iTunes 9.1's Album View provides an easy way to sort your universal binaries (iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad) apps from your iPhone and iPod touch only, and iPad only apps by separating them out in just that order.

If you're not sure how to get to Album View, it's the middle button of the three view icons immediately left of the search box, the one that looks like two rows of three squares. The icon to the left of it is List View, to the right of it is CoverFlow. See the picture above.

It's a small touch but a nice one for those of us who fret about just such organization minutia.

SHAPE Services sneak previews IM+, RDM+, iDisplay for iPad

SHAPE Services, who you may know from IM+ or Business Card Reader for the iPhone shared some screenshots of their upcoming apps with us, including: IM+ for iPad, RDM+ for iPad, and iDisplay.

  • IM+ is, of course, their popular instant messenger app for the iPhone scaled up for the big 1024x768 pixel iPad screen. Supports MSN, Yahoo!, Google Talk, AIM, Jabber, ICQ, Facebook, MySpace, Skype and Twitter.

  • RDM+ is Remote Desktop for Mobiles, which will let you access your PC, even through NAT and Firewalls. Just imagine sitting at your sofa with your office or den computer magically held in your iPad display.

  • iDisplay, which will follow later, lets you turn your iPad or iPhone into a an extra Mac side monitor. A universal binary, it will automatically detect if you're running it on iPad or on a smaller iPhone or iPod touch screen, and let you span your desktop to fill the extra space. Think of it as a dual display, only you don't have to buy another screen -- just use your Apple mobile!

While anything can change between now and Saturday, we hope to see at least a couple of these apps on the iPad ASAP.

First iPad reviews are in!

First iPad reviews are in!

TiPb has done the full iPad review, of course, but while we're iPhone, iPod touch, and now iPad-centric, there are a lot of more general technology columnists and gadget bloggers out there who've gone touch-to-screen with Apple latest mobile device, and different perspectives are decidedly a good thing. So here's a roundup of what they think:

Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal says it's "pretty close" to a laptop killer. He also got 11:28 of battery time on it!

After spending hours and hours with it, I believe this beautiful new touch-screen device from Apple has the potential to change portable computing profoundly, and to challenge the primacy of the laptop. It could even help, eventually, to propel the finger-driven, multitouch user interface ahead of the mouse-driven interface that has prevailed for decades.

David Pogue of the New York Times actually writes two reviews, one for the more tech-centric critics and one for the more positively inclined mainstream.

The techie review is decidedly negative:

The bottom line is that you can get a laptop for much less money — with a full keyboard, DVD drive, U.S.B. jacks, camera-card slot, camera, the works. Besides: If you’ve already got a laptop and a smartphone, who’s going to carry around a third machine?

The mainstream review is more positive:

The iPad is so fast and light, the multitouch screen so bright and responsive, the software so easy to navigate, that it really does qualify as a new category of gadget. Some have suggested that it might make a good goof-proof computer for technophobes, the aged and the young; they’re absolutely right.

Ed Baig of USA Today says it's a winner.

The iPad is not so much about what you can do — browse, do e-mail, play games, read e-books and more — but how you can do it. That's where Apple is rewriting the rulebook for mainstream computing. There is no mouse or physical keyboard. Everything is based on touch. All programs arrive directly through Apple's App Store. Apple's tablet is fun, simple, stunning to look at and blazingly fast.
