[prMac.com] Bristol, United Kingdom - Today, Red Jumper Studio is pleased to announce the long awaited Book Creator 2.4. Book Creator has revolutionised digital publishing and has enabled people in over 50 countries to share their books with the world. Book Creator shifts iPad use from consumption to creation by providing simple tools that let anyone publish their work. From 5-year-olds to octogenarians, kindergarteners to professionals, Book Creator is simple to use, yet versatile, allowing creation to take the stage and complicated ePub formatting the backseat.
"Makes E-Book publishing easy." - Wired.com
"What a great tool! It's sleek, intuitive, and easy. Being able to design a fixed layout picture book right on the iPad makes total sense. Highly recommended." - Liz Castro, Author
New in 2.4:
* Import Book Creator made ePub Files - With support for importing books, you can now work collaboratively across multiple iPads, or easily backup and restore individual books from your iPad.
* Combine books - Work on sections of a book individually, even on different iPads, before combining into a final book.
* Enhanced PDF export - PDF documents now export with high resolution images and vector text so that they look great in iBooks and on the Retina display.
* Support for hyperlinks and richer text editing - Link to pages inside your book or external content.
Now with richer editing you can underline, italicise, and bold your text. Requires iOS 6.
With great books in the iBookstore like All the Things I Can Do! by Mollycules and The Crockodogopig by Ricky Tart & Andrew Kolb made using Book Creator as well as 5-year-old John Tambunan's Little Fish (a top ten children's book in the US iBookstore), BookCreator is well loved and used by professionals as well as those writing their first book. Schools like Cedars School, the world's first iPad 1:1 school, also love using Book Creator and with the new features offered by 4.2 it will be easier than ever for teachers to use Book Creator in the classroom.
Dan Amos, the developer behind Book Creator, left his position at Nokia as a Product Manager to create this app when he saw that there was a need for a simple, affordable digital publishing tool.
About what's new in 2.4 Dan says, "With Book Creator 2.4 you can now create beautiful iBooks collaboratively. With the simple import feature your creations can be edited across multiple iPads, opening up new ways of working. At home, family members can all contribute to their joint holiday book. In the classroom teachers can prepare books for students to complete, and add comments to their finished projects. Friends can remix one another's content. We believe collaboration is the next evolution for iPad apps after the journey from consumption apps to creation apps; and Book Creator is leading the charge."
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 7.2 MB
