I am using iBooks app to store many PDF reference files. I am getting the PDFs from my dropbox app. File names in dropbox are descriptive, but when I chose to view them in iBooks they get a different title like "form 2 XXXX".
I cannot seem to find if I can change title once file is in iBooks.

I would like to buy preorder the iPad and gift to someone overseas. Will they be able use the iPad in their own country without any problems on the itunes store for that country? I know they won't be able to download the iBooks application initially but eventually when it gets rolled out for the appropriate country, will they just be able to continue using it?
Apple will not be shipping iPads with the iBooks application as a built-in app, notes John Gruber at Daring Fireball. To get the iBooks application, iPad users will have to download it themselves.
Depending on how Apple promotes the iBooks app in the App Store, this is a nice opportunity for Amazon's Kindle app to pick up market share.
If iPad users don't know Apple has the iBookstore, which is possible, they might search for and download the Kindle app instead.
John speculates that Apple didn't include the app as a standard, because it's easier to update it if it's an independent app. The apps that are bundled with the iPhone -- Stocks, Weather, etc. -- are only updated when the iPhone OS is updated.
Interesting decision. Most people will get it immediately after they first turn on their iPad for the first time but why lose some potential customers just to have it update independently.
I was hoping for a new version of iTunes to come out soon with the iBook shelf so I can start organising my PDF's and editing tags.
The iBooks application after about 1/2 minute from startup, quits, this happens with a book open (any book)or in the iBook book display screen. Problem started after I downloaded a large number of epub books using iTunes. Anybody has experience this problem ?. Sometimes resetting the Ipad solves , but only temporary, the problem

I use my iPad mainly for work. Generally I get pdf documents into iBooks by email. However, the title of the document when it gets into iBooks is changed, often to something that doesn't mean much (e.g. Microsoft Word Introduction).
Is there a way to change the document title as it appears in the list of files in iBooks?
I'm getting around this by putting the document into iBooks via iTunes where the document title remains the file name but I can only do this at home - I want to be able to email documents and have the file name appear as the title in iBooks.

Safari Hands Off EBooks To Stanza, Not IBooks. How To Change That?
May 5, 2010
I have my eBooks collection on my university office computer and I use calibre's built-in server to make them available to me wherever I am. I use Safari to obtain a catalog listing of my eBook library and click on a book title link to download it. Safari then presents me with a button labeled "Open in 'Stanza.'" Stanza is an iPhone app that I have to run pixel doubled on my iPad. I would rather Safari let me open it in iBooks which is optimized for the iPad. How do I change that behavior?

IBooks Upload Files Lost If IBooks App Is Deleted?
Jul 18, 2011
I downloaded my original copy of iBooks using an obsolete but still functional Apple ID by mistake. I now would like to delete this version of the app and upload another copy of iBooks using the correct Apple ID so I can ask Apple to delete the old Apple ID once and for all. Will the pdfs and other files I uploaded for viewing in iBooks be trashed if I delete the old app or will they be waiting and accessible to the new copy of the app?
