iBooks – access multimedia textbooks (and thousands of other books). Textbooks are owned by the purchaser and stored in their account – including free updates. Some textbooks are free, others available for purchase. If you have access to a Mac, use iBooks Author, another free app from Apple, to create your own multimedia textbook.
