Safari Books Online Introduces Mobile Integration with Safari Bookbag

Oct 28, 2008

Safari Books Online, a provider of an on-demand digital library including books and videos for technology and business professionals, announced the mobile integration of Safari Bookbag, giving users the ability to download a chapter and full book PDFs to the iPhone and iPod touch. Safari Bookbag can be installed via the Apple App Store. Bookbag users can synch their Apple devices with the "My Downloads" section of their Safari Books Online accounts, which houses PDF versions of books that have been downloaded. To access titles on the iPhone or iPod touch, users can select the chapter of the book they want to download by tapping on the title of the book. With the Bookbag application, any iPod touch or iPhone with Internet access (Edge, Wi-Fi, 3G) can automatically transfer chapters of books from the Safari library. Once the books are downloaded, the PDFs can be read and accessed at any time, even without an Internet connection.
