Apple has updated iBooks to version 1.2 with some major new features. You can now organize books and PDFs into personal Collections. This is a blessing for those with unorganized iBook Shelves. Fully illustrated books have also been added to the iBookstore ranging from children’s books to beautifully designed art books. Let’s see the Kindle do this one. Another expected feature is print support for PDF documents and notes in iBooks via AirPrint.
Here’s the complete changelog for iBooks 1.2:
• Experience fully illustrated books, from children’s picture books to beautifully designed art books, available for download in the iBookstore.
• Organize your books and PDFs into personal Collections. Swipe left or right to jump between Collections.
• Print PDF documents and notes you’ve written in iBooks using AirPrint.
• iBooks now fits more words per page by automatically hyphenating text, available only on iOS 4.2 or later.
This is the beauty of not making iBooks a part of iOS. It keeps getting updated regularly unlike the other stock apps that have never been updated.
