kindle app DESTROYS ibooks imo
We couldn't find some books today on the ibook store so we decided to try the kindle app. Not only does the kindle app have more books, but on average it seems like books in paperback are about four to five dollars cheaper than in ibooks. Plus the app itself is much more smooth and less laggy. No loading pages forever, etc.
Just one mans opinion....if you don't need to convert and import books...I highly recommend kindle over ibooks. Ill never buy another ibooks book again, that's for sure.

And if you like the Kindle reader, try the Nook (B&N) reader. Barnes and Noble has tons of inexpensive ebooks.
And then there's uBooks, which will read all those old format books that you've had on your hard drive for years. It's not as smooth, but it's free, and reads everything from epub to pdf.

Wow, are you an amazon employee or something?
I disagree, for one, you barely talk about the apps themselves. The kindle app is very "unpolished" and doesn't have fancy curls or the great highlighting.
Secondly, the prices of the books and the iBookstore selection are not at all in any way related to the apps themselves.
