I exported an iBook from "iBooks Author" and I successfully side-loaded the iBook to my iPad via DropBox. I'm aware that it's also possible for an iPad user to download an iBook into their iPad via a webpage.


Has anyone successfully side-loaded an iBook (with interactive and multimedia widgets) by importing it into iTunes then syncing their iPad or manually transferring it via iTunes?

    I did it successfully! I just now:


    1. In iTunes, I chose the "Books" category from the little drop-down menu at left,

    2. Used File -> Add to Library ...

    3. Imported my iBook into iTunes

    4. When I started to drag the iBook icon towards the right, a panel displayed at right that contained an icon representing my iPad ... I dropped the iBook icon onto the iPad

    5. The iBook opened within the "iBooks" app on my iPad
