[prMac.com] Vilnius, Lithuania - Jumsoft, developer of high quality applications for Mac OS X, today is pleased to announce that it has updated its template assortment for Apple's iBooks Author. The first version of the Book Palette app was launched six weeks ago and contained 10 templates, which have now been boosted with another 10 designs for beautiful e-books.
Book Palette provides templates for various e-book styles - from textbooks to a classic cookbook. The new additions feature a number of Jumsoft's familiar designs for Keynote, expertly adapted for iPad books, along with two completely fresh layouts for a children's book and a gothic novel.
"This time, we tried to experiment more with different layout options in iBooks Author," said Algirdas Unguvaitis, General Manager of Jumsoft. "Although we kept the standard layouts, we also added a few new elements requested by our users. We have tons of ideas and not all of them can be implemented on iBooks Author, which is still a very new application, but I'm sure we'll do it in the future."
All 20 templates contain the full range of standard section and page layouts provided in the iBooks Author app, including covers, chapter pages, text pages, tables of contents, glossary pages, and more. A wide selection of text styles for different book elements ensures a vivid yet consistent look in each template.
Most elements in Book Palette can be easily recolored, moved, or removed. Users can type or paste in their own text, add and remove text boxes, and change the fonts. Stock images can be replaced with users' own photos or pictures. Gallery, video, and other widgets featured in iBooks Author also have a matching look in Book Palette, and the app allows users to adapt these elements to their own liking.
