ebooks development
The new Apple version of Ibooks has been created as a mechanism for delivering interactive textbooks to those users. With the aid of a free authoring program, publishers and individuals can easily create educational content for distribution through the ITunes store. It took me four weeks to get my first e-book right, that was researching and very Sunday all day. I had some help but no one I could sit down with and say, " how do you do this? " Since then my students get an e-book or a pdf every Monday, and my life is much better. This Scoop will try to bring the best tips on e-book development but more so the new IBook author.

It's interesting that if your new to the ibook you simply cut and paste into placeholder, however, there is much more going on behind that images, and a lot you need to know when you're using images with ibook.
