iBooks, Wattpad Ipad apps avalaible now, B&N coming soon

I figure everyone knew that iBooks was available, but I just want to make sure. You can download iBooks now (if you have a US iTunes account).

From the Wattpad press release:

Wattpad, the world’s most popular ebook community, today announces immediate availability of its popular mobile application for the Apple iPad.

...

Wattpad for iPad is specifically optimized by making full use of the iPad’s large screen. Due to iPad’s larger form factor, Wattpad’s iPhone application is completely redesigned for the iPad in order to fully take advantage of the larger screen and enhanced interface.

As for B&N, The Wall Street Journal is reporting:

When the iPad went on sale this morning, Apple’s own iBooks store had nothing to fear from Barnes & Noble, the country’s largest bookseller — because Barnes & Noble’s iPad app isn’t yet available on Apple’s App store.

...

“We don’t have an exact date, but it will be there within the next two weeks,” said William Lynch, the new chief executive of Barnes & Noble. “Apple certifies all apps, so it’s not totally in our control.”

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
