Over 1 million ebooks have been created using Book Creator for iPad since its launch in 2011, at a rate of 80,000 per week. In order to celebrate this and make the app even more accessible, the developers are launching a free version.
The Full version of the app will continue to be priced at GBP2.99/$4.99, but there will now also be a free version available, with all the same features as the Full version but limited to creating just one book. Users will be given the option to upgrade to the Full version with an in-App purchase. With Book Creator for iPad you can:
* Create books on your iPad with an easy-to-use interface
* Apply rich formatting with over 50 fonts to choose from
* Add photos and video or record your own audio
* Open your books in iBooks and share them with friends
* ePub format enables you to publish your work on Apple's iBookstore
Red Jumper Studio's Dan Amos, the app's developer, said: "We're thrilled that so many books have been created using Book Creator at home and in schools. Now with the free version there really are no barriers to creating your first book and sharing it with your friends and family, or even publishing to the iBookstore."
What others have said about Book Creator:
"What a great tool! It's sleek, intuitive, and easy. Being able to design a fixed layout picture book right on the iPad makes total sense. Highly recommended." - Liz Castro, Author of 'EPUB Straight to the Point: Creating ebooks for the Apple iPad and other ereaders'
"I love this app. It's an incredibly powerful app with a deceptively easy to use interface. One of the three iPad apps every elementary school should buy." - Dan Callahan, Instructional Technology Specialist K-5 with 1:1 iPads
"Makes E-Book publishing easy." - Wired
Book Creator for iPad 2.7 is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Books category. A discount for the Full version is available via Apple's Volume Purchasing Programme.
