NOTE - FIXED LAYOUT EBOOKS:
Book Creator supports iBooks' fixed layout format, including double page images and soundtracks. Fixed layout books are not suitable if you want to create novels, where text flows from page to page. You will not be able to copy in large amounts of text from other documents.

Ratings and Reviews
Just published first ebook of our series prepared with book creator app
If you are looking for an app to prepare an ePub for a children's book, Book Creator app for iPad produces a beautiful ePub3. We varied the font and font size, boldness and color. We chose a square book format, but other shapes and sizes are available. We were also able to choose page color and vary page color throughout the book. We included a short video, in lieu of an illustration on one page. There is the option to narrate your book or have the app narrate it and light up the word being read. There is an automatic page turning option. Air dropping illustrations from your iPad or iPhone is very easy. For book 2 in our series, we are doing more illustrations directly onto the iPad/book creator page with a stylus. For our needs, the app is easy to use and offers all of the features we needed. We have been asked to conduct a seminar for teachers and writers on preparing an ebook with Book Creator for iPad at a local college next month.
The only problem we encountered was submitting a table of contents to Apple's iTunes Producer. There were instructions in Book Creator for preparing a TOC to submit to Apple, but we did not get it right. The folks at Apple were nice enough to redo our TOC.
It’s no iBook Author
If you’re trying to make a book and use it in the ibooks as an epub file, it’s not great. Here’s what you can’t do and they won’t tell you about it until after your purchase it.
1) Once you’ve made a book and transferred to ibooks, you can’t high light it, you can’t change font size. Heck, you can’t annotate over it like you can with pdf files in the ibook... and this is iOS 11!
2) If you want to make a book with chapters in them, you can for get about this app.
3) you can’t crop photos 😕
Here’s why it even got 3 stars. They seem to be focused on making kids books and for that, the price is fair. It’s not for thesis, reports, or research. It’s not for professional use.
Thanks for the honest feedback. I hope you don't feel misled after buying Book Creator. I think we're up front about the fact that our app is for making simple fixed layout ebooks.
Why can I no longer scroll to edit!!
I’ve been using this app for a while and have loved it. But today, it’s not letting me scroll down to edit text! I am panicked because I use it to create our Sunday morning bulletins. I can’t get it to scroll! What happened!
I’m now looking for another program! It’s taking too long to fix the issues!!
Hi LadyTreana - sorry about that. This bug is fixed now.
