Book Palette: First Templates for iBooks Author on the Mac App Store

February 2, 2012 in Publishing (E)

[] Vilnius, Lithuania - Jumsoft, developer of high-quality applications for Mac OS X and iOS, keeps up with the latest technology news. Within two weeks after Apple released its new iBooks Author application for creating interactive e-books, Jumsoft launched the first set of templates for it to appear on the Mac App Store. The Book Palette app contains 10 beautiful and functional templates that bring plenty of creative options to Mac users who wish to publish their own gorgeous e-books.

"We were really excited when the news about iBooks Author first appeared," said Algirdas Unguvaitis, general manager of Jumsoft. "The announcement came late at night, European time, and we already had all of the key ideas for Book Palette by the next morning. I really hope that users of iBooks Author will appreciate the beautiful extra design options that Book Palette offers, and I can't wait to start expanding the current template range."

The first version of Book Palette provides 10 templates for various e-book styles - from slick business publications to a traditional cookbook. All 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 variety of text styles for different book elements ensure 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 modify these elements to their own liking.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X 10.7.2 or later
* iBooks Author
* 22.0 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Book Pallete 1.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Graphics & Design category. After the app is downloaded, it will be automatically installed on a user's Mac.
