New Apple iBooks App Features For Printing, Folder Management And Illustrated Books

Apple has released a fresh update to their iBooks eReader app that brings a number of new and interesting features to the application. One of the new features includes the ability for users to wirelessly print PDFs and other documents from the iBooks app using the AirPrint functionality on iOS 4.2. The new update also supports fully illustrated books that could introduce readers to a number of chilren picture books as well as art books.

Besides these, the new iBooks version introduces users to ‘Collections‘ – a folder management option for users to better organize their ebook collections. You may remember our article from late last month where we had given you a glimpse of this new feature. Users may move any Book to a designated Collection by tapping Edit followed by a tap on the Book to specify the Collection. The new iBooks app will also have a dedicated Collections tab on the top of the page to easily navigate through the various folders.

The new version of the iBooks app is now available for download on the App Store. You can download it by clicking here.
