Needs a real update
This is a good application with a whole lot of potential, but unfortunately it’s stuck in 2007. The Apple team developing this product have seemingly been kidnapped by some unknown force that is holding them hostage 10 years in the past. I genuinely hope that Apple will pull togther its considerable resources, and put together a rescue mission to save these poor souls from this misfortune. I am sure they are frantically trying to call Cupertino for help from their iPhone 2G. Hopefully, help is on the way.
The best app for creating books! But a few bugs...
This app is a very good app for book creating! And Apple made the layout and desings and stuff so so well!(I am very impressed!)
But there is one thing… Sometimes when inmporting media, it slows down your computer for a few minutes and it gets very hot...
Desperately Needs Feature & Design Updates
iBooks Author has been sorely left behind. This app should parallel the iWork suite and be given the same design and feature updates that Pages, Numbers & Keynote get. Instead it has been left behind, not even recieving an aesthetic facelift to match design language introduced in Yosemite.
Please give iBooks Author much needed attention.
One idea, drop “iBooks” from the name, impliment iAd Producer capabilities and allow for publishing to iBooks or Apple News.
