On Thursday, Apple launched a minor upgrade to its iBooks e-book and PDF reading app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
iBooks 1.2.2 features “a number of important stability and performance improvements” for playing video with more sophisticated books from the iBookstore, improper fonts being displayed, and navigational responsiveness.
iBooks works with an iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 3.2 or later.
