iBooks 1.2 Download for iPhone and iPad Now Available

Apple [AAPL] has released a new update for iBooks. The new update is version 1.2 and it brings several new features to the iPhone and iPad (and iPod touch).

New features include better and fully illustrated books allowing childrens books to look better as well as for other books such as artbooks to get a makeover.

The update also brings more organisation to your library and now allows you to organise the library in to collections. The Books/PDF buttons have now been replaced with a single button that takes you to a list of folders. Here, you can create new collections such as study books etc… and then put books in to the folder to keep things more organised.

Printing PDFs is also an option now, for those of you lucky enough to have an Airprint compatible printer.

Full list of features here…
• Experience fully illustrated books, from children’s picture books to beautifully designed art books, available for download in the iBookstore.
• Organize your books and PDFs into personal Collections. Swipe left or right to jump between Collections.
• Print PDF documents and notes you’ve written in iBooks using AirPrint.
• iBooks now fits more words per page by automatically hyphenating text, available only on iOS 4.2 or later.

Available now via iTunes or as an update in the App Store.
