According to the mobile phone advertising company Mobclix, eBooks passed another milestone this month overtaking iPhone games in the app store. This should not come as a shock, since there’s practically no barriers in releasing an eBook app.
All you need to do is code a wrapper for the eBook, release the title in the app store and pretty much that’s it. Games, on the other hand, require you to have more advanced programming, artistic and design skills.
Most probably Apple is trying to encourage such stats, in favor of the upcoming iPad and iBooks.app . Just like the apps and games in the app store, we will probably see an abundance of crappy eBooks after the iPad hits the masses. It will be interesting to see how Apple’s iBooks.app will win devoted Stanza fans.
