This is a follow-up to: iTunes ePub eBooks: Cover Display Problems
Continuing to test the compatibility of so-called “industry-standard” ePub eBooks with iTunes.
These are the kind of tests I expected to run on an iPad itself. So all of this stuff is ahead of what I had expected.
I downloaded six more ePub eBooks.
Results after the break.
Yellow: Dracula’s Guest – ePubBooks.com
Green: Feedbooks custom test (this book is not online yet)
Purple: Mother of Demons – Baen Free Library
So, of five books that people can get right now, two had their covers not display in iTunes.
What’s surprising is that the cover from Baen Books did not display.
As for Feedbooks, I’ve been informed that their covers will be fixed over the next few
weeks days. Since Feedbooks is free and can be redownloaded at any time, I consider Feedbooks to now be fixed.
The others will have to wait for Apple to fix iTunes — and possibly iBooks too — or do some changes on their side.
