Get rid of your generic ebooks!

iBookplate brings an ancient book tradition into the modern world. Before ebooks, or paperbacks, or hardbacks, or any type of mass-produced books, avid readers would purchase their books unbound and bind with their own, personal bindings. They would then attach a bookplate to identify the owner of the book. iBookplate updates this tradition for the Mac. iBookplate allows you to personalize the appearance and metadata of both ePub and PDF books in iBooks.

Many ebooks, including both free, public domain works and sometimes even purchased books, are distributed without cover images. The title and author may not be exactly correct or what you want to see in iBooks. The iBooks category is assigned by the iBookstore and cannot be changed. iBookplate fixes all of these problems.

Use iBookplate to change the cover images, titles, authors, and categories of your favourite ePub and PDF books. If your books are already in iBooks, just export them, change them, and put them back in.

Works Great!!!! - #1 reason to buy this program - when you go into the Books folder (where iBooks hides all the ebooks), you can select the file and see the cover!!! This program allows me to change the category, name, and cover of the book. iBooks seems to have a limitation that you can’t save the new cover/data directly to the old file, but have to remove/replace the item. This is what worked for me: Step 1 - Delete the book out of iBooks with the iBook program. This file will go to the trash. Step 2 - Drag/drop the file to a new folder. Step 3 - Right click and “open in” ibookplate. Make changes to the file and save. Step 4 - drag/drop the changed file back into iBooks. Your book will be added with all of the corrections and you can rename/save the corrected file (in the folder) somewhere safe. This saved my sanity because the lack of covers, incorrect categories/genres, and screwed up names were driving me crazy!!!

Fake. Broken. DO NOT BUY. - DO NOT BUY THIS. When you click the app icon, nothing opens. It’s a fake app meant to steal your money. I’m calling Apple for a refund.
