View Full Version : How to download iBooks app for Aussies that get iPad first

Hey guys, been contemplating on how I would go about getting iBooks on the iPad obviously because the App Store for iPad might not be available before the initial release in Oz so I created a US iTunes account. This will also give access to the iWork apps if ppl wanted them early like myself

i use a US account for my apple TV, so will just configure the ipad with this account. Hoping this will work

I too have a US account but it only let's me get free apps. Can't work out how to use my Credit Card as it will reject it being as how it's an Aussie Bankcard.

Don't know what all the fuss is about as Calibre, Filemagnet and Stanza both make it easy to get Books and magazines onto the iPhone so i'm sure it will be just as easy on the iPad.
