[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Veteran iOS eBook reader app developer Inkstone Software today is proud to announce the availability of eBook Search Pro, an enhanced version of their popular eBook Search app. eBook Search makes it possible to find over 2 million free eBooks and download them directly to the iBooks, Kindle, Nook, and Kobo apps. It does this by connecting to the free book catalogs of Feedbooks, Baen Books, Project Gutenberg, Smashwords, and the Internet Archive.
Since its release in October, more than 2.75 million free books have been downloaded through eBook Search.

ManyBooks offers over 29,000 free books in more than 30 languages in a variety of formats including ePub, FB2, PDF, Kindle, and RTF. Munseys is known for its hard to find titles including Pulp Fiction, Religion, and a wide variety of other topics.
"We have worked hard to bring the best free books available on the Internet to iOS devices. We love helping people discover the rich trove of freely-available literature as well as up and coming indie writers." said Inkstone CEO Patrick Thompson.
While most people are satisfied using eBook Search to download books from the built-in catalogs, users can add any OPDS-compatible catalog to the app, including Calibre, the free personal eBook management platform.
