iBooks Updated to Version 1.2

iBooks has been updated to version 1.2, which features full illustrations, collections (folders), and support for AirPrint. To create a collection, tap “Collections”, “New”, and then move the books or PDFs you want into it. You can then swipe to move between Collections.

Naturally, AirPrint doesn’t allow you to print out text from books, just notes and PDF documents. As with other apps, AirPrint only works with compatible printers (unless you have installed a workaround).

Apple has also managed to fit more words per page by automatically hyphenating text in iOS 4.2+.

What’s New in Version 1.2

• 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.
