I really like it but one thing...

I love this app and I make lots of books with it, I don’t use it for school purposes (I still make kid friendly books!) but there’s one problem. You have to pay to make more than one or three books I forgot (I’ve used this app for so long I forgot how many books you can make without having to pay, I think you can only make one though). Also I don’t though if you can fix this but I had this app on an old iPad I had and that iPad broke, so I had to get a new one and when I got book creator, all of my books were gone. Don’t think the creators of this app can fix that but I just wanted to mention that. Great app, but the paying to make more books is kinda dumb.

Buy This App!!!

I love this app!!! It’s so amazing! Even though you have to pay some money, you can’t expect everything thing for free you know. Also for others that are reading this, when you finish writing a book and you can’t buy more, use the instructions manual! Erase everything on it and make a book! That’s what I did until my mom bought more for me. Please buy this app! It’s amazing even though I wish that there was more thing in here. If anyone wants to be an author you can work on this app to practice! Especially if a child has lots of imagination. I am even writing books of my nightmares and dreams! One of my dreams was when monsters were taking over the world! Knowing that I will die, but also remembering a clip I watched about that you can control your dreams if you will. And I had super powers and I made me and the people around me turn invisible! And I made the monsters go right though us so we don’t die from getting stepped on. Also you can get nightmares from watching or seeing something you don’t like! But the whole point is this is a great app!

Come on! #2. (Includes font talk) DEVELOPERS READ IT.

It’s me again. I had another Come On one. First of all, if you don’t have it upgraded, can you PLEASE make it one comic if it isn’t? My other review, said New Times Roman and EB Garamond were my fav fonts. This book series, Wings of Fire has a font no Book Creator has. Could you add it, since the font is so cool? The only font that I think is closest to it is EB Garamond, but the Ts and the Ys, and Palatino, which is very close to it. The font in Wings of Fire has a long end of the Y and a line, not a circle at the end. The Ss have like the Ss in Palatino and EB Garamond. No y in any font looks like the font in Wings of Fire. I looked up what font Wings of Fire had, and the websites, I could not understand, and I think there’s a font titled Etsy. And certainly the y looks like the y in wings of fire. If the developers can’t add it, could you try adding a font without the Ss like in Libre Baskerville and New Times Roman, along with a bunch of others? Thanks, I’d love more fonts like that. Ok, enough font talk! Bc fonts were all I wanted to talk about in my second review, thx and bye! Hope the developers read it!
