Apple released iBooks app some three years ago and since then, it has mustered significant popularity among iOS users. The app was initially released for iOS users only and Mac users have long been asking Apple to bring it over to Mac machines too.

Now, much to the delight of Mac users, Apple has finally decided to bring ‘iBooks’ to Mac users. The original ‘iBooks’ offers a whole lot of features such as notes, textbooks and highlights. And Apple has assured that when porting the app to Mac, all these features will remain intact.

For avid readers of e-books, the best thing about iBooks is that you can even purchases books straight from the app. Moreover, since the app is supported on iCloud, you can leave the book mid-way on one iOS device or Mac machine and then resume it from that very spot at another iOS device or Mac machine.
