Safari To Go brings iPad access to subscription books

updated 12:10 pm EDT, Fri November 5, 2010

Titles focus on training

Safari Books Online has released a new e-book reader for the iPad, Safari To Go. The app accesses books from the SBO subscription service, which concentrates on educational titles in fields like technology and business. Some publishers signed up to Safari include Adobe, Cisco, O'Reilly, Microsoft, McGraw-Hill and Wiley.

Users can browse for books and search through their contents, and create notes, tags and bookmarks, which are synced with the Safari website. Trials and subscriptions can be activated from within the app; if a person isn't a subscriber, they can read a sample of each book. An important feature is offline caching, which allows books to be read away from an Internet connection.

The app is a free download, but subscriptions are paid. A 10-slot bookshelf subscription is $23 a month, for instance, or $253 a year. The costs of an unlimited subscription with access to video and draft extras are $43 per month and $473 a year. Still more options are available for workgroups, businesses, schools and libraries.
