Contact us on Twitter @BookCreatorApp[/cs_text][x_accordion link=”true” class=”pd-top-50″ style=”margin-top:50px;”][x_accordion_item title=”What kind of books can I make using Book Creator?” open=”false”]What kind of books can I make using Book Creator?

For starters how about:

  • Children’s picture books
  • Photo books
  • Art books
  • Cook books
  • Manuals
  • Textbooks
  • Comics

The list goes on. [/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”What's the difference between fixed layout ePubs and flowable text?” open=”false”]Book Creator makes ‘fixed layout’ e-books. These are books where the author positions text and images on the page, and your readers will see the same layout, exactly what you want for most books containing pictures.

For long books that are predominately text such as novels it would be a big task to layout every page.

If you want to make this kind of ‘flowable text’ book, Book Creator is not the right app for you.

You might prefer to use applications like Apple’s Pages or iBooks Author. Or if you’re using a PC, Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign. [/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Can I only publish as an ePub? What about other formats?” open=”false”]With Book Creator for iPad you can publish in PDF form (suitable for almost all kinds of platforms or readers, or even printing).

What’s more, you can even export your book as a video, meaning you can publish to YouTube or Vimeo, and embed it on your own website if you wish.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Why make an ebook rather than a book app?” open=”false”]We love apps and we love iBooks – after all Book Creator is an app that makes iBooks!

With an app you can do pretty much anything you can think of (fantastic), but with iBooks you get lots of reading related features for free (also fantastic!). Let’s take a look at what you get with an iBook:

  • Page turning animations
  • Background music
  • Accessibility features
  • Search
  • Automatic table of contents
  • Built in dictionary
  • Bookmarks
  • Page brightness adjuster
  • Download of samples from iBooks Store
  • Basic interactivity such as touchable areas
  • Read aloud narration, and word highlighting (not currently supported by Book Creator)

If this pretty much covers what you need then it sounds like an iBook is right for your idea. And the good news is that it will probably be much simpler to make. Plus if you’re planning on selling your finished book it’s worth taking note of Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines, that are used to accept or reject apps:

“Apps that are simply a book should be submitted to the iBooks Store.”[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Can I sell my books in Apple’s iBooks Store?” open=”false”]Yes. Book Creator outputs ePub files that will meet Apple’s technical requirements, ready for a smooth upload to the iBooks Store.

Take a look at Apple’s FAQ for more information about submission to the iBooks Store.

Check out some of the books already published to the iBooks Store in our ‘Made with Book Creator’ Pinterest board.

Here’s our 3-step guide for publishing to the iBookstore.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”If I sell my books do I have to pay any further money or royalties to Book Creator?” open=”false”]No. We only charge for the download of Book Creator from the App Store.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Does Book Creator use Digital Rights Management (DRM)?” open=”false”]Book Creator does not apply DRM to your books, leaving you free to choose exactly how you want to share them with the world.

If you submit your book to Apple’s iBooks Store you can choose at that time to add DRM to your book.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Can I edit my created books and add custom code to the ePub files?” open=”false”]Book Creator outputs standard ePub files so you can unzip them and enhance them however you want.

More on this here.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Can the books I create be read on a Kindle or Nook?” open=”false”]Book Creator is optimised to give the very best experience on an iPad, iPhone or Mac with Apple’s iBooks app.

Book Creator outputs books using the international ePub standard so you can open the files on other e-readers that support ePub, but we can’t guarantee that the reading experience will be comparable to the iPad.[/x_accordion_item][/x_accordion][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” class=”cs-ta-center” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_button size=”global” block=”false” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”http://support.redjumper.net/hc/en-us” title=”” target=”blank” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””]Support articles[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
