Apple Books is an app that lets you browse, buy, and read e-books on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. It was first released in mid-2010 as part of the iOS 4 update. Since then it has been updated and is available for macOS as well.
Open a book
Apple Books is an iOS app that lets you read books, browse book descriptions and reviews, and manage your library. Its main features include multi-finger gestures and a Touch Bar. You can also listen to an audiobook or use the table of contents button.
Apple Books uses HTML semantics to layout text. In addition, it supports horizontal and vertical text. The text direction is defined by the writing-mode property. Some languages may prefer a right-to-left (RTL) or left-to-right (LTR) direction. For nonlinear documents, the document opens in a separate window. To make sure your document maintains formatting and is readable, use CSS to style its transitions.
When reading an EPUB file, you can zoom in or out. The iBooks app also allows you to re-read your favorite books. You can add a book to your Want to Read list. If you have an unpurchased book, it is displayed in the upper right corner of the book. Similarly, you can click a “Go to page” link to return to the previous page.
Listen to an audiobook
If you have an iPhone or an iPod, you can download an audiobook from Apple Books and listen to it offline. Alternatively, you can purchase an audiobook from the Apple Audiobook Store.
Unlike other audiobook services, Apple Books allows you to buy audiobooks individually. You can also listen to free sample audiobooks.
Apple Books offers many great features. In particular, it provides a high-quality ebook reading experience. It also has a search bar, Browse sections, and a “Reading Now” tab. Besides its wide selection of audiobook titles, Apple Books has a sleek, futuristic design.
Buying an audiobook from the iBooks Store is a little complicated. You have to learn how to use the service. Plus, it’s not always the most affordable option.
Fortunately, there are other apps you can use to access and listen to free audiobooks. One of them is Audible. The company offers a 30-day trial. And, it’s also a reasonably priced subscription service. Audible users can download free podcasts, theatrical recordings, and audiobooks.
Organize your library with collections
Apple Books has a nice set of tools for organizing your library. They include a cool reordering feature, and a quick way to sort books within collections. However, there are some built-in collections that can’t be edited. Organizing your library using Collections will make it easier to locate the right book when you need it.
Kindle users can also create collections to organize their library. This feature can be useful when you want to group books by topics, author, or genre. There are other collection features, too. You can group similar books in the same genre, or create custom Collections with unique names. Organizing your Kindle Library is not as easy as it sounds.
If you’re looking to reorganize your library, the best way is to remove unneeded books. The Books function of iBooks lets you sync your contents to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac via iCloud. By removing unneeded items from your library, you can free up space and keep it organized.
Gift a book
The iBooks Store is one of the biggest online book stores, and it is also home to a huge library of books. You can purchase eBooks from Apple’s iBooks Store and send them to other people.
When it comes to buying an iBook as a gift, the process is relatively easy. Apple recently added a new digital gifting feature to its iBooks app. If you have an iOS device, you can find this option by tapping the ‘Gift This Book’ option on the app’s share menu. However, if you have an Android device, you need to open the Google Play app, locate the book you want to gift, and then select the ‘Gift’ button.
Before you can give a book as a gift, you’ll need to enter the recipient’s Apple ID. This is required, as well as their email address. Once you have logged in, you can choose the title, author, cover, and more.
Next, you’ll need to set the date the book will be delivered. The delivery date can be selected to arrive as soon as the book is purchased, or up to 90 days in advance.
