E-books and e-readers are increasingly popular, and many popular book sellers have released apps designed to replicate their dedicated e-reader’s reading experience on the iPad. As a result, the iPad can be viewed as the ultimate e-reader, as it replicates available devices’ interfaces, supports multiple book formats, sources, and offers more choices for readers. The iPad (and its many apps) also makes the DRM that locks many e-books less important, as you can simply switch apps if one doesn’t support your e-book’s DRM scheme. The iPad, then, provides options to readers they would not have otherwise (without buying another device or removing DRM). Yet, these options come with a price: navigating the App Store to find the apps you need to read what you want. Lucky for you, we’ve done this arduous task for you, and you can follow this Guide to find the app(s) you need to read the e-books you have, find the e-books you want, and buy them.
