Book Creator is coming to the web

Dan KempAndroid, Blog, Chrome, Windows

This summer – our biggest ever update!

Here’s what we’re working on… a new, web based version of Book Creator that will work in the Chrome browser on ALL devices. That means Chromebooks, Macs, Windows devices, even Android and iPhones!


NEW!! Book Creator for Chrome is open for beta testing »

Since it’s launch in 2011, Book Creator for iPad has gone on to become one of the best-selling Education apps on the App Store, with over 25 million ebooks made in classrooms across the world.

Building on that success, we are now developing a web-based version of Book Creator to bring simple ebook creation to even more students and teachers.

This new version will allow you to create books on any device. And it will be as fully featured as the iPad version, plus more.

  • Add text, images, drawings, shapes, audio and video.
  • Create awesome comics with the built in comic templates.
  • Publish and share your books online with our new web-based reader.
  • Work collaboratively and combine books from multiple authors.
  • Access all your books on any device.

That last one is huge. Imagine students working on a book using their Chromebook at school, then getting home and grabbing their iPad to finish it.

We’re planning to launch this new version of Book Creator in the summer, ready for the next school year.

  3. Hello Dan,
    yesterday I bought your great App (€ 4,99).
    Now my question: will it be possible to combine the App with (for example) the new web-based-reader?
    Thanks for your answer.

    1. In our next update to the iPad app (coming soon), we’ll give you the ability to publish your books online to our web reader, yes. You’ll need a separate subscription to use the web editor version of Book Creator.

  4. If I want to create the books on a Windows PC and have my students view them on Chromebooks and possibly iPads, what is the best approach? Wait for the web editor version to be released?

  5. Hi Dan,
    It says that that students will be able to work collaboratively. For my classroom set of iPads, does that mean they can share and work on the same book in real time from different iPads?

    1. Collaborative working in real time will definitely happen with the Chromebook version. No plans to add this to the iPad version just yet – at the moment the iPad app is still an offline product. In either case, you can combine books from different authors with no problem using iPad or the Chrome version.
