  1. Does this mean books I’ve created with Book Creator for iOS will be usable on Android devices, or just that I can create Android versions using an Android device?

    1. Hi Dom, yes – you’ll be able to transfer your iOS books to you Android device. Only square books will work at the moment – Portrait and Landscape will come soon.

  2. Why is it only available on Android 4.1? I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that I want to use it on. It also doesn’t work on my note 3! I have 3 Android devices and it doesn’t work on any of them. It’s very unfortunate because I was looking forward to it.

    1. Hi Tony, Book Creator requires a tablet with a screen of approx 7″ or larger which is why it isn’t available for your Note 3.
      We had some bugs with on 4.0 devices which we were unable to fix for this release. We are looking at fixing those and getting support for 4.0 into a future release.

    1. At the moment you can only print your books from the iPad version. We have not yet built this feature for Android, but plan to add PDF export in the future – which is the first step to printing.

  3. Is there any way this app can be used in a Windows 8 PC? If not now, anytime soon? Thank you!

    1. Hi Claudia – yes, we’re working on a Windows version that will work on PCs running Windows 8.1 or higher.

  4. Book Creator is the best app for you if you have a very wild imagination and you really want to share it. It is also a good idea to practice making books in. And that is why I think you should download this app!????????????????

  5. This app is not available. No link works. It says, item not available.
    How did the other guys above get it?
    Ii live in South Africa…. maybe that?
