Create Your Own Narrated iBooks With Book Creator

Create Your Own Narrated iBooks With Book Creator | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Book Creator allows anyone to create their own books using images, text, videos, and audio recordings.

Book Creator is not a free app ($4.99 as an individual and less with volume purchasing) but I think that it is well worth the money that I spent on it.

 

The latest updates to 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.

Another feature added to Book Creator 2.5 is the option to take pictures and videos from within the app. Version 2.5 introduced new page format options including a full screen format.
