Today’s WWDC 2010 keynote address was focused very much on the iPhone and the new iPhone 4 in particular – but there were still some bits of good news for iPad owners as well, starting with the new iOS 4 that is due to hit the iPad in the fall.
There was also word that the iBooks app is due for an update today, and is adding some major new features:
Now you can make notes. In addition, we’ve added a control to just tap and bookmark a page — under ToC you’ll see all the notes, highlights, and bookmarks
We’ve added another big enhancement — the ability to view and read PDFs. So we’ve built that in. You can now view PDFs. We’ve put a little selector at the top — books and PDFs. You get a whole new bookshelf just for PDFs, they just look gorgeous.
Those should knock off some of the biggest wish list items for many iBooks users.
At the tome of writing this post – around 4:45PM US Central – I don’t see the iBooks update in the App Store. Hopefully we’ll see it soon.
