.ibooks File Extension

Developer: Apple
File type: Multi-Touch iBook
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ibooks. Files with the file extension .ibooks can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ibooks files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ibooks file?

The Apple iPad device can be used to read digital books and the digital books that are usually created for this device are saved as IBOOKS files; which is why they are called Multi-Touch iBooks. IBOOKS files are usually in the ePub 3 format, containing some proprietary Apple-specific additions. These files also refer to the text, videos, presentations, images; 3D objects as well other media contained in the digital books and the interaction of users through multi-touch gestures are supported by these files. IBOOKS are only used for the Apple iPad, but they are not created using this device. Instead, they are created using the iBooks Author application; a program used for the designing and publishing of digital books. The IBOOKS files can either be exported to the ibooks format, PDF files or plain text files and once the IBOOKS files have been completed, they can be published to the iBookstore with the use of the iTunes Producer program.

how to open a .ibooks file?

Launch a .ibooks file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ibooks file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ibooks files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ibooks file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ibooks file will open the correct application.

Apple iBooks Author

Apple iBooks Author

Simply known as iBA, Apple iBooks Author is a software that authors or creates e-Book for Mac OS X computers. It is a program that enables an individual to create his own book or books absolutely free of charge. This authoring program creates documents that can be converted or exported as PDF, and published to iBooks Bookstore. Documents created from this program are editable in WYSIWYG fashion from texts to font styles, font sizes to colors, foreground images to background images and more. Like the standard format of books and e-Books, this software product includes the addition of table of contents with chapters, titles and sub-tiles, as well as glossaries and indexes. Other than that, this e-book authoring tool has user-friendly interface for easy and quick management. Its first release was last January 19, 2012 in New York but later came out with two more versions, which are iBooks 2 and iBooks Bookstore category for different textbooks.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ibooks files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ibooks. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
