After using the Kindle and other apps I have finally found my perfect match. I now read all books on iBooks due to the simple interface and sleek design. I can even store epub, pdf books and audio books on it and easily access them. I prefer the fonts on this app along wth the black background view for reading at night. I use scroll reading as I read very fast and there is never any lag with it.
When listening to aufio books you can set easy timers and hop swiftly through chapters. The book store connected is perfect as well, i rarely tun into any formatting issues anymore which is very pleasant. All in all my favorite reader!

I used to solely use my kindle app, though I'm unsure why seeing as I carry my iPad everywhere, but I found there were a ton of great free books on this app, and often are cheaper than kindle books. Not always, but I just check both apps. I love that I can download stories from Smashwords to my iBooks app and save them until I'm read or have time, and as someone who is a complete bookworm I believe you can never have enough book apps! This is a great one, it's never even had a glitch in all the yrs I've been using it either. Which is rare! Great must have app for all readers!

I only read on my iPad, so iBooks is my go to app. I do sometimes get frustrated when a book is not available yet on the app. Then I have to download it elsewhere. But I love the convenience of being able read on multiple Apple devices. I also love the setup and options of the book formats. Wether I want to virtually flip the page or if I would rather scroll endlessly through the book. I also love the night time setting so I can read at night while my husband sleeps with out keeping him awake with the bright light of the iPad.

I love that Apple iBooks makes it so easy to find good novels to read! My favorite feature is hat when I find a book that I like, I can go to the tab in the store called "related" and find other books written by the same author, similar books and books that other customers bought as well! It makes it easy to find new books that are related to the ones that I know I like without having to search through the Internet to find them!

One of my favorite iPhone preset apps! I love how you can use it to store books you buy or article pamphlets from Safari. It also helps keep ticket information handy for when you don't want to print it out. All of this stays "offline" so whenever you need to pull out an article, book, ticket voucher, magazine, etc you don't have to worry about data use nor poor internet connections.

This app is easy to use and reading is so much more convenient. The brightness of the page even adapts to light conditions! Easy to highlight and add notes. One thing I don't like is you are unable to change highlight color unless you have unhighlighted it first which can be a pain. But otherwise good app. Necessary for owners of new apple products

With newer updates the app is easier and easier to use, and I have problems with crashing on my iPad perhaps one out of every 50 uses. Book prices are really expensive so I usually buy ebooks and download pdfs elsewhere and import them here so It's amazing iBooks has that feature to import other forms of media not purchased from Apple.

As an educator, I can't emphasize how amazing iBooks are. They are very easy to make using the iBooks Author app, and it allows my students to learn only the content that I want them to learn and pull the information from multiple sources. They are visually appealing and you have many different options on how to produce the books.

I love this application for reading iBooks. I have also used Kindle and I am not as impressed. I like that it shows you what page you are on and how many pages are left until the next chapter. It is free and the books are a good price, but can be expensive. They also offer free books (like Wuthering Heights)
