See All Your Books in iBooks

The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.

With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.

Other bugs fixed include issues with text selection, problems with the Spotlight importer, an issue with undoing shape changes, a few small memory leaks, a problem with sticky flags, and a flaw with the Find panel. ($49.95 new, free update, free trial available)

Comments about NoteBook 3.0.9

I have used Notebook for my diary for the last 18 months. It has worked well in that role. I haven’t used all its features, but no need right now.
Not a great app at all...
Reformating when creating a PDF is just bad...
Whwn playing with picture import and text you can loose pict or text...
Flowing between text and pict is like non existant...

wish it will be better one day...
