[prMac.com] Montabaur, Germany - Photobook Plus is pleased to announce the release of their new app "Photobook+" for the iPad, now with a reduced inductory price. Most families have given up on trying to print their digital photos and then actually gluing them into a real photo album. Simply collecting them in a photo data base isn't the best and most satisfactory solution either.
The iPad now offers the creative Photobook solution. The app is able to create any number of virtual photo albums, that may be viewed right on the screen - in retina resolution. 47 beautiful, preset layouts are available to incorporate someone's photos and really show them off to their best advantage.
The photo albums will accept pictures from the iPad Gallery. However, it is just as easy to import them from iCloud or Fotostream directly through the iPhone. By using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, photos from a digital camera may also be selected. Additionally, by going through iTunes, it is more than simple to use image folders from the hard drive.
With Photobook+ the user can really let his sense of creativity take over. The copy spaces of the photo albums don't just accept pictures. They can also incorporate map sections, drawings that where painted with the finger, explanatory texts - and even the accurate weather to match the date and place of recording.
The pages of the finished photo album may be turned over with the finger - just like the ones in a real book. Furthermore, so your friends don't feel left out, the album may be shared via Facebook, Twitter or e-mail. A great way to watch the album might be if the iPad is being connected to a monitor or a TV and set up as a slideshow - this way everybody will be able to enjoy the "big show". If an AirPrint printer is close by, the album could be printed out in high quality and would this way still be put on paper, after all.
Marco Metting, responsible for the development of the app: "Thanks to the stored GPS data, all images can be located on a world map. It might be fun to share with friends all the places you have visited around the world."
In a nutshell:
* Generates virtual photo albums
* 47 preset photo album layouts
* Displays photos, maps, drawings, texts and more
* Browse through the photo album with a swiping motion

It is a good idea, to back up all data from the app. This way the photo albums may be restored at a later time, either on the same or a different device.
