From Today’s Announcement:

Safari Books Online ( today announced their next generation Safari To Go apps which are free apps designed specifically for Apple and Android phone and tablet users.

The Safari To Go apps can be downloaded from the Apple App store and from Google Play for Android device owners.

Safari To Go iOS and Android apps provide the following:

  • Offline Bookbag capacity increased to allow the download of 3 books for reading without an Internet connection
  • Synched Recent Views, Bookmarks & Folders across all devices used to access Safari Books Online
  • 3G & 4G optimized for faster load times and smaller data overhead
