BookWatch Tracks the iBookstore so You Don’t Have to

A new app launched last week that looks like it might help you find content in iBooks.

BookWatch is one of a trio of new apps from Alex Pepper, a longtime iOS developer. This app, along with AudiobookWatch and MusicWatch, tracks content sold by Apple and helps you find new content as its uploaded. You can find the apps in free (ad-supported) and paid ($.99) versions, and they function in generally the same way.

With BookWatch you enter an author’s name and the app will check for that author’s books in iBooks.  Yes, that does sound rather simple, but the app also saves the name for the next time you run the app Then it will tell you if there have been any changes.

Over the long run, this will cut down on searching iBooks. It’s a nice little shortcut.
