99 cents for your own pictures?

If you're gonna say that we can use are own pictures. then make it free to do so. Because thats the whole point of why I got the app. At least stop saying that we can use our own pictures.

Great App

I absolutely love this app! I love picture book because you can be creative, and share your creations with your friends and family!

But, picture book has cons too! First, I think it should have spelling correction like Microsoft Word so we can edit our stories. Next, I'm thinking of more pictures, maybe we can draw our own? And I also think we should be able to have more cover options. And more fonts!

Other than that, picture book is my favorite app ever. I will like it even more if you would consider these problems.

Thank you for reading this,
( coming from an 11 year old girl)

Pretty Good!

It is actually pretty great! I use it quite often because I like to write such stories. Fun!
The idea is nice! Totally free except for in-app purchases for things like covers and stuff. I really enjoyed using this app, and you will too!
