With just one day until iPad launches outside of the USA, iBooks is now available in the UK iTunes App Store. It was believed that a few countries actually had availability to iBooks over a week ago but the UK store was not showing the application.
When you download iBooks, Winnie The Pooh will appear on your bookshelf as a taster of what you can expect. The books currently available are free when entering the iBooks store and there isn’t a huge selection to choose from but the fact that iBooks is available can only be good news for those living outside of the US. With any luck there will be more books available at launch on Friday, 28th May.
