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.

Send Article to a Friend

Fog City Releases LetterRip Pro -- Fog City Software has released LetterRip Pro 3.0, a major revision of their easy-to-configure, high performance mailing list software. In addition to user interface enhancements and performance improvements, LetterRip Pro can now remove duplicate addresses (and recognize similar email addresses), support multihoming under Open Transport 1.3, handle separate administrators for each mailing list, compile daily statistics, and - importantly - add or modify message headers to protect private addresses or add custom information. Until 31-Mar-98, LetterRip Pro is available from Fog City for $295, and current LetterRip owners can upgrade for $95 (the upgrade is free if you purchased LetterRip during 1998). After 31-Mar-98, LetterRip Pro will be $395 and upgrades will be $145. Fog City recently posted LetterRip Pro 3.0.1 which fixes a couple of bugs; there's also an updater you can install over an existing copy of LetterRip Pro 3.0. LetterRip Pro is available from Fog City's Web site and can be used for 30 days without a registration number. [GD]
