eBook Apps

08/11/11  |  Posted by Niki Smith  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

Heard about ebooks? Digital books, available for eReaders like the Kindle, Nook, and Kobo, or for apps on your tablets (iPad and Android-based), smart phones or computers. There are a number of big players in the ebook scene now-- Amazon's Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook, and Apple's iBooks. These apps allow you to change font and font size for easy reading. You can bookmark your place, organize your library, and read free samples. Check and see if some of your required textbooks are available as ebooks! Nook in the iTunes App Store - FREE Pros:

  • Over 2 million ebooks, newspapers and magazines in the store.
  • Any books purchased will automatically sync with your Nook device, or with Nook apps on your computer or phone.
  • You can check out eBooks from the Cleveland Public Library for free.
Cons: Kindle in the iTunes App Store - FREE Pros:
  • Over 950,000 titles in the store.
  • Any books purchased will automatically sync with your Kindle device, or with Kindle apps on your computer or phone.
Cons:
  • Amazon's eBook file format is very restrictive. The Kindle only accepts .mobi files, rather than the more standard .epub, meaning you can only read books you've purchased through Amazon on this app. Ebooks checked out from the library will not work in this app.
  • You can't purchase books in the app itself, due to ongoing issues with Apple. To buy a new book, just visit http://Amazon.com/kindlestore in your iPad's Safari or any web browser.
iBooks in the iTunes App Store - FREE Pros:
  • You can purchase books directly from the app instead of visiting a website.
  • You can check out eBooks from the Cleveland Public Library for free.
Cons:
  • Any books purchased will only sync with iBooks on iPads, iPod touch and iPhones.
Which app are you using to read ebooks?
