iBooks Author Downloads Over 600,000 in 5 Days

iBooks Author, the app which allows educators to produce their own textbooks, has pushed over 600,000 downloads in 5 days.  It was previously thought that this number was under 90,000, however Apple announce in this morning’s conference call that this plus a total of 3 million iTunes U downloads is pushing the education initiative along mightily.

The fact that iBooks Author only runs on Mac OS X Lion should also drive future Mac OS X sales or even machine sales as users come to grips with not being able to run the app unless they upgrade.

There have also been over 700 million downloads of iTunes U related materials thus far and that number is expected to grow exponentially as iTunes U is adopted by more and more universities.
