Brief Bits: iBooks 2, iTunes U Apps Now High-Resolution

Apple has been busy updating its official lineup of App Store apps, beginning yesterday with the refreshed iLife and iWork suites for iOS. The trend continues today, as Apple has updated their iBooks 2 and iTunes U apps to give them the high-resolution treatment, optimized for use on Apple’s new iPad with Retina display.

Both apps have also received a number of performance and stability improvements, while the updated iBooks app now allows you to see page numbers that correspond to the printed edition of select titles, search for a page number to jump to a desired page with a single tap, and use your finger as a highlighter when swiping over text.
