After releasing the iOS4 update earlier today, Apple has now followed up with the company’s e-book reading app, iBooks, which will now run on the iPhone and iPod touch.
Released as a 1.1 update, iBooks is now a universal app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, those of you who own an iPad will remember that it already included iBooks, however this latest version brings a number of new features to the reading experience, including bookmarks, the ability to highlight passages, and note-taking capabilities.
Furthermore iBooks 1.1 now allows you to choose between a sepia or white page background, and Georgia is available as a new font. You can choose between left or fully justified text layouts; you also have the ability to increase the font size even larger than before.
Just like it did with the iPad, Apple has made Winnie the Poohavailable as a free download to iPhone users who install iBooks.
iBooks requires iPhone OS 3.2 or greater, and it is available now for free in the App Store.
