Detailed Descriptions of the steps can be found below.

What TouchCopy can do with your Books

The Book functionality is available only for iOS devices that have the iBooks application installed.

With TouchCopy you can copy books from your iBooks App straight into iTunes. TouchCopy can handle both PDF and EPUB formatted eBooks.


To view the books on your iOS device, click the "Books" icon in the category list.

TouchCopy will display all the books on your iOS device and indicate the format that each book has.

Copying Books to iTunes

If no books are selected, clicking "Copy To iTunes" in either the book viewer tool bar or the main TouchCopy control bar will copy all of the books listed into your iTunes library.

Selecting a book or books in the list and clicking "Copy To iTunes" will copy only those selected books to iTunes.

Viewing PDF Files

This functionality requires PDF reading software to be installed on your machine, such as Adobe PDF Reader.

Select a PDF formatted book from the list and click "View PDF". You can also double click a PDF book from the list to view it. TouchCopy will open the PDF Book in the default PDF viewer installed on your computer.
