Book Creator supports iBooks' fixed layout format, including double page images and soundtracks. Fixed layout books are not suitable if you want to create novels, where text flows from page to page. You will not be able to copy in large amounts of text from other documents.


The app includes a Getting Started manual, plus we have an online support forum at with how-to articles and email support.

"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 of ‘EPUB Straight to the Point: Creating ebooks for the Apple iPad and other ereaders’

"The app is super intuitive! I was working on a book for my 7 year old niece (who lives in Brazil) in no time. It took me about 30 minutes to put together a book for her, publish in iBooks and email the ePub file to my brother…to open it up on his iPad…. for my niece to read it."

iPad App(s) don’t have full functionality

The product is excellent in theory but there are 2 different iPad apps, one paid upfront and one paid in app, I ended up buying both hoping for full functionality, one should be removed from the store to avoid both appear identical.

The second issue is neither app has the library functionality, in particular image searching, if this could be enabled the app would be brilliant.. they can get pictures online and create brilliant books…

This is a far superior product to the others on the market, it just need streamlining and image searching without requiring extra accounts, logins, websites, seperate libraries every time the kid’s open the app.

Pls fix ASAP

Book creator is an awesome app but in the latest update the feature to put text/pictures/ect underneath the page to expand it was removed. I used the feature/bug all the time and i really want it back. There’s also an infuriating bug that when you draw, some random “ink” appears somewhere on the screen and sometimes the drawing goes wobbly and slightly away from where you were touching. The biggest problem i have with this new update is the removal of customisable colours, which was really helpful when drawing stuff and now with the colours limited it’s really hard to draw more complex pictures. The new feature of being able to redraw saved drawings is awesome, but I’ll be nice if if you edit the drawing, then go out and back in you’ll still be able to undo it. (A redo button would be nice as well)

Amazing App -Review from Star Review Company

This is a great app! If you’re willing to pay the fee, which is totally worth it, you’ll be able to see how good this app is! When I first installed there were bugs, but the developers have done an excellent job and eradicate them. I actually wrote a review that said there was a bug, and I explained the problem. Two days later, the bug was gone. Really good, it’s great that you can create books and comics, I recommend to people wanting to create stories.

You can express your imagination and creativity, and this would help kids to expand their vocabulary by wanting to write books. I absolutely adore this app and have written two books already.

100% Recommend. Great app. I give you all an applause!
