    OK now its been suggested to use Kindle App and Kindle books in the same way, might be easier as it syncs to all devices that have the same account but i don't know if there are any complications with this!

    Not tried myself. I don't see why it shouldn't work if all of your iPads use the same account. I guess free Kindle books are fine but paid ones would be against the licensing rules as they are meant to be individual devices really.

    Yeah, thats always going to be the problem, there is no easy solution and terms & Conditions for both apple and amazon seem quite sketchy on this issue

    Damn it. I uploaded a few ebooks to Google Drive, installed it on the iPad and then used 'Open With' to to view the books in iBooks.

    I then created a backup of that iPad with Apple Configurator and restored it to the other iPads. I opened iBooks and there were all of the books, although they didn't show the covers like they did on the 'master' iPad. A few seconds later, all of the books disappeared!

    I'm guessing the profile that Configurator automatically installs when a device becomes 'Supervised' is preventing the books from installing on multiple iPads. I can still read the books on the 'master' one. Maybe I'd have to manually go to each iPad, sign into Google Drive and open each book in iBooks. Trouble is, next time I install an app, create a backup of one iPad and then restore to the others, it will probably wipe the books off again...perhaps.

    Like you say, Kindle books might be more straight forward!

    Just spent the afternoon at our local apple store with the business consultant talking me through setting up and deploying ipads using, Mac mini server, apple configurator and profile manager. Looking into Lightspeed MDM or Meraki.

    Is anyone able to provide some advise or a quick chat and answer a few questions.

    There is no need for a extra mdm then, Profile Manager is a MDM

    Whilst Profile Manager can deploy profiles to enrolled devices, it is not a full MDM solution as it does not integrate with Apple VPP for app deployment
