Last month we saw the launch of Oyster, the iPhone app that lets you read unlimited e-books for $10 a month. Today, Oyster is adding an iPad app for iOS 7 and is shifting from an invite-only model to open access for anyone interested in subscribing to its apps, starting with a 30-day free trial.

Since you're likely to use Oyster for iPad at home, versus when you're out, the app features a dark blue background that the team says encourages readers to "get lost in their book" by dulling the reflection from the iPad screen.
