In case you haven’t heard by now is taking over LOL, but more importantly they just released their Google eBook App on the iphone and iPad, and Android as well. I downloaded it and took a quick tour of it. Much the same as other ebook readers, however they do seem to have more books available.
Quick pros and cons:
- Pros: you have an option to read from either the digital version (Flow Text), or Scanned Pages. This is a great option for those of us that need to cite our references. The Scanned text is the exact same page from the book, which includes page numbers.
- Cons: you can’t highlight, or add any annotations. That kills this App
But I suspect that this is only temporary and will be corrected very soon. Also as best as I can tell once the book is downloaded to your app you don’t need WiFi to read it. I did a quick test and it seems to work.
