I'd rather have a proper book but it doesn't seem that Genesis are planning to release one (yet). The December publication is a hand-bound signed limited edition that is likely to cost several hundred pounds. As with Postcards from the Boys, there will probably be a regular publication at some stage, but so far as I've seen no date for that has yet been set.

As far as I've read online, it will only work on an iPad.

No, the version available from iTunes is usable on a computer.

A new book called The Beatles: The BBC Archives by BBC radio producer Kevin Howlett, who previously wrote The Beatles at The Beeb, will be coming out in October to coincide with the re-release of the Live At The BBC album. More at WogBlog:

The Beatles exploded into British popular culture in the 1960s and changed the face of music for ever. Central to this success were the BBC radio and television programmes that brought them from the clubs of Hamburg and Liverpool into the living rooms of an adoring public. The Beatles performed on countless BBC programmes, performing both their hit songs and rare cover versions of the music that inspired them.

In this landmark book, BBC producer and Beatles expert Kevin Howlett delves deep into the BBC archives to reveal hundreds of rare photographs and long-forgotten interviews that document the early rise, steady evolution and eventual split of the group. Uncovering additional archive documents such as early audition reports, audience feedback forms and internal memos from startled BBC executives, the files give a fascinating insight into the biggest band of all time.

Beautifully packaged and extensively researched, The Beatles: The BBC Archives is a definitive guide to a unique relationship between two cultural icons.

Reportedly, the main body of the book contains the surviving transcripts of the Beatles' appearances on BBC Radio and Television from 1962 to 1970. Each interview transcript will be set in its historical context, with accompanying commentary by Kevin Howlett. Howlett's commentary will be supplemented by rare photos of the Fab Four at the BBC's studios, both onstage and off. The book will also feature memorabilia-album art; concert posters, flyers, and tickets, all from the BBC.

Sounds like something else to save up for.

Here's another one I liked from Ringo's ebook, from the Hey Bulldog session:
