Book Creator for iPad is my favorite iPad app for creating narrated multimedia books on my iPad. So when the developers approached me with ten promo codes to give away, I said yes. Details on how to get a promo code are at the bottom of this post.
Book Creator allows anyone to create their own books using images, text, videos, and audio recordings. You can arrange your book in three different formats; portrait, square, or landscape. Each page in your book can include pictures and videos from your iPad’s camera roll and or from your iTunes library. In addition to the pictures and videos you can include as much as text as you can fit on each page. In fact, if you just want to have text on a page you can do that. If you would like to narrate your book you can tap the record button to add your voice to each page of your book. Every page in your book can have a custom color scheme.
Book Creator allows you to export your books to ePub 3.0 format. The exported file can be opened an read in the Chrome web browser using the free Readium browser extension. This is a great option as it allows a parent who doesn’t have an iPad at home to view his or her child’s work at home.
Book Creator costs $4.99 (less with volume purchasing), but you can now try it and create one entire book for free. If you’re trying to decide if Book Creator is worth purchasing, try the free version first.
