Book Creator 4.3: What have we improved?

Dan KempMusic, News

You can now share media from other apps directly into Book Creator.

The latest update to Book Creator is now in the App Store with support for sharing audio, video, image and text straight into Book Creator from other apps. Sharing works from Google Drive, Dropbox, the Photos app, iMovie and more.

Previously, you had to save any photo or video to the iPad Camera Roll first – now you can do it directly. What’s more, you couldn’t share audio tracks at all before, without exporting them to a computer with iTunes.

But for example, you can now share songs from GarageBand into Book Creator in just a few taps, and then set them as a hotspot button or the book’s soundtrack.
