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 bookcreator.com/support with how-to articles and email support.

Book Creator is open-ended, creative and cross curriculum, and is one of the most popular iPad apps for teachers across the world.

“Book Creator sits atop my list of the best educational apps. I’ve used Book Creator with learners of all ages, from kindergarten to adults. Its simplicity is refreshing, allowing authors to focus on their content.”
- Tony Vincent, Learning and Technology Consultant, learninginhand.com

“In my opinion the essential education app for the iPad!”
- Andrew Rhodes, Apple Distinguished Educator and Director of Technology, International School of Stavanger

"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."

What’s New

Version 5.4.0

We've updated Book Creator to be fully compatible with iOS 13 and 14 (to make sure we can keep providing awesome updates!).

In this release we fixed a couple of small bugs related to text editing and hyperlinks. You can also now add Apple Maps to your books. Why not add a map then use the pen tool to annotate it?

Thank you for continuing to use Book Creator and bringing creativity to your classrooms. Happy book making!

Imogi🐞 ,

The bug.......

Book creator is a really helpful app for school but there is a problem. The problem is that sometimes you see the buttons and the out line but the grey bit and the page all go white and you can’t see anything on the page☹️ This doesn’t just happen to my iPad it happens to a lot of my friend. But I still like it, I use it for presentations, stories (that’s not often) and stuff like that.......BOOK CREATOR PLEASE FIX THIS IT IS VERY ANNOYING! and also 👍🏻

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear this Imogi🐞- the best thing to do if you experience this is let us know at support@bookcreator.com and we can investigate. Do you know if your version of Book Creator and iOS is up to date?

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)
