Bookbee Ebooks » Maths Used to Prove $2.99-3.99 is Optimum Ebook Price | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

You can Now Listen and Buy Audiobooks with Apple iBooks | Good-E-Reader

You can Now Listen and Buy Audiobooks with Apple iBooks | Good-E-Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Apple is starting to take audiobooks very seriously. In the past, if you wanted to buy one, you had to find a hidden section in the iTunes store and then open up the music app to listen to them. Things have gotten more intuitive with 8.4 firmware update for the iPhone and iPad.

The iBooks app has received a dramatic upgrade if you are a fan of audiobooks. All of your audiobook purchases are now stored alongside all of your e-books and PDF files. You can sort the audio editions from written content by clicking on the main sorting menu. If you fancy buying or browsing a new title you can click on the store option and there is a brand new audiobook section, within the iBookstore.
