Great! until…

This app is awesome and has helped me with countless things, I especially thank the creators. But on day I logged on to book creator and pressed create book but instead of adding a new book to my other creations a page popped up that said I needed to re buy the app and under it said “already purchased”. But when I pressed it did nothing. So even though I was already on my last nerve, I pressed the 4.99 button. After I made the purchase I sat for thirty minutes staring at a buffering symbol until it stopped. I would also like to add I was on Wi-Fi and had just restarted my iPad and turned Wi-Fi off for twenty seconds. Then after I tried to press create book again it showed me the same 4.99 button. So as you see there is obviously a serious glitch that made me repay double the amount I was supposed to. Please answer my review and fix this glitch as soon as possible thank you for reading my review. 🐱

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!

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.
