Is it possible to view books purchased in iBooks on an Android device

Hi, I've bought my first book within iBooks, is it possible to view it using an Android device e-reader (I use Aldiko, but could use any other)? I get a technical failure when I try and import which I suspect is caused by DRM kicking in, having previously imported ePub titles without any problems.
Also, are there any good alternatives to the iBooks store - e.g. which allow purchases which can be copied between devices in this way?
Thanks in advance

If I  produce an eBook using iBA  to offer free ( and DRM free ) from my websites....  can they be downloaded and used by Android  phones/tablets??
Only the iPad can read the .ibooks format produced by iBA.  If you want to use the pdf option, then anything can read it.

    How to view pictures on epub book purchased from iBooks?

    The important thing to remember abuout iPhoto is that it's a database. And like any db, the data must be imported into it. By default, when you import the pics to iPhoto they are copied into the iPhoto Package File in your Pictures Folder. If you have NOT changed the default, then yes, you can trash the pics outside of the iPhoto Package File.
    Most people do this.

  • How can I read books purchased from iBooks on my Mac?

    I'm completely new to the whole Apple world and have ran across this issue.  How can I read books, that I've purchased through iBooks on my iPad or iPhone, on my Mac?  Surely this is possible, but I just can figure out how Apple intends for us to do this.
    If someone could please help me out with this information I would appreciate it.

    Or I can just purchase them from a competitor such as Kindle and read them on my Mac
    Sure seems short sighted on Apple's part not to have this functionality.  This will drive my purchasing decisions to Kindle.
    I'm sure that there has been plenty of negative feedback already directed to Apple for this decision.  Does anyone know whether or not they have listened and if they have any plans to correct this issue?

  • HT204053 Naive question I know but here goes. One apple ID, multiple apple IOS devices (touch/pad/phone). Books purchased via Kindle sync to ALL devices via iCloud. How can I stop this? I want to separate each of the family's reading prefernces from the d

    Naive question but here goes.
    As a family we have one Apple ID. All devices are synced via my PC and backed up to it rather than to iCloud.
    Books purchased via Kindle App appear on all the devices within the "cloud" option. How do I separate each reader's prefernce to their own device? I want to make sure that the younger one's dont have access to anything unsuitable.

    You can have one AppleID for your purchases so that all teh devices can use all the apps without having to buy them again, and at the same time, have different iCloud accounts for each user so that their content is not intermingled with everyone else's.  You can even go so far as to have your iCloud Account enabled for "Find my iPhone" for each of the other devices allowing you to keep track of where tehy are when they get misplaced.
    If you need/want, you can share iCloud Calendars between different iCloud accounts as well.  This is exactly what my wife & I have done.  We share calendars so I know when she has classes or dog competitions, and she can see my work schedule so she knows what nights I have to be in late, etc.

  • Books purchased through iBooks App missing on ipod touch 4 after updating to 5.0.1

    I updated my ipod touch 4 to version 5.0.1 and now all of the books I purchased through iBooks are unable to load because "the requested resource is missing." When I go to Purchased items, it appears empty.  But why I go to the Store to attempt to rebuy the book I was reading, it doesn't give me the option to purchase, stating that it has already been downloaded.  Anyone else having a similar problem?  Or better yet, does anyone have a solution or advice???? Thanks.

    If or some reason you failed to transfer any purchases to your computer before updating, then redownload them:

  • Is it possible to read books downloaded for Ibook on my computer?

    I am curious, is it possible to read books dowloaded via ITunes for IBooks in my MacBook Pro?

    Yes there is. Not by Apple yet but I have read the downloaded books (into iTunes library) using "caliber".
    "calibre is a free and open source e-book library management application developed by users of e-books for users of e-books."
    If necessary, you can also convert to another format (eg MOBI) so you can read on your Kindle or whatever...

  • How much do Canadians have to pay for books purchased using iBooks?

    What is the cost for Canadians to purchase books on the iPad?

    It varies by the book, just as prices vary in a bookstore that carries printed books. You'd have to mention a specific title before anyone could tell you the price. Or, if you have (or have access to) an iPad, you can just go to the iBooks Store and search or browse yourself.

  • How do I retrieve purchased books purchased through iBooks?

    I recently bought a few books on my ipad only to find out my it won't charge, sync, or recognize the cord at all. No big deal, it's getting exchanged, but I can't sync the books just bought! How do I retrieve my stuff with the new ipad?

    You didn't say what app you purchased them in, so I'm going to assume it's iBooks.
    When you get the new iPad set up on the same iTunes account, just go to the store within iBooks and then select "Purchased" on the bottom right corner. To the best of my recollection, it will let you download previously purchased books.

  • How can I delete permanently books purchased from ibooks

    Is there a way to delete purchases permanently from iBooks? I can delete from the library, but you can still see them under purchases; I don't want them under purchases; I don't want to see them ever again.

    I was unable to delete a book sample from my iPhone 5s running iOS 7.  This seems to be what worked for me.  I went to the Library and clicked "edit" in upper right side of the screen.  I then tapped one time on the book I wanted to remove and a blue check appeared at the bottom right corner of that book (presumably you could tap several at a time)  Anyway, when the blue check is on the book, you will see in the upper left of the screen the word "Delete" (mine was in red) I clicked that and then a confirming dialog came up from the bottom of the screen with the choices of "delete" or "cancel".  I chose "delete" and the book was gone.  Hope this helps.

  • Book purchased in ibooks says downloaded but cannot find in ibooks or itunes purchases and not on my desktop.  Paid for it but cannot find the download.  HELP

    Purchase book from ibooks and paid for it. When I look up "purchased" it says it is downloaded but I cannot find it in either ibooks or itunes.  Am very new at this and read all previous similar posts, but nothing helped.  Please help me find my book.

    If it shows as 'downloaded' in the Purchased tabs in the iBooks app then it should show on the bookshelf in the app. If you select the My Books tab in the app (bottom left) and then tap the 'collection' name at the top middle of the bookshelf and select the 'All' collection does it then show on the bookshelf ?

  • Help Viewing Content Purchased On Apple TV on other Devices

    Hello, I have purchased a TV series on my Apple TV3 and I want to watch it on one of my other devices, either an Ipad3 or new Macbook pro
    All three devices are logged on to the same Apple ID. I have homesharing on the computer turned on and Apple TV can see the computer
    The TV series is there in Apple TV and it's indicated as being in the cloud, but it doesn't show up under purchased in Itunes on the computer, nor on the Ipad.
    Is there something else I need to be doing to get the Ipad/computer to find the series in the cloud.  Am I right to assume that any content I purchase from the Itunes story should be visible/playable on all the devices or is some content more equal than other.
    Thanks in advance for any help

    thanks for your answer although I do not want any of my apple tv content to be backed up on my itunes even though I may lose the purchased content on my apple tv for some reason. This is why I changed my settings from "sync" to "streaming". It did not start doing this additional downloading to iTunes till they came out with iTunes 8.0
    Changing the method of media transfer from sync to stream will not affect the tv in the way that you want it to. You you might want to change the type of library to a shared library though.
