iBooks Widget for Mac

CNET Editors' review

iBooks Widget allows you to quickly preview in your dashboard both paid and free books available in the iBookstore. This widget's well-designed interface and legible typography make it a good choice for any digital bookworm, though the graphics and the buttons could do with a redesign. Still, if you love books you'll love this app.

iBooks Widget installs to your Mac dashboard, giving you a nice display of current titles in the iBookstore, along with detailed book information and short plot synopsis. You can browse through interesting titles quickly and filter displayed results by categories such as fiction, biography, and memoir. The widget displays top paid as well as top free books, making it easy for you to keep up to date with what's popular. When you find an interesting title, you can download it with a single click, saving you the trouble of having to go through the rather lengthy iTunes book-buying process. What's slightly annoying, though, is that when you're switching back and forth between categories, previously viewed links don't change color.

Overall, iBooks Widget delivers what it promises. With it you can view and buy books from the iBookstore more easily, and have more fun doing it. But you'll only find this dashboard widget useful if you use iBookstore regularly. If you do most of your shopping on Amazon or some other online bookstore, this widget has nothing to offer you.
