Frequently Asked Questions

Book Creator works on all versions of the iPad.

For iPad 1 users an older version of the app is available through the App Store.

If you want to take advantage of all the latest options, you’ll need an iPad 2 or newer, as Book Creator is optimised for iOS 8 and above.

For starters how about:

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

The list goes on. 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 so you might prefer to use applications like Apple’s Pages or Microsoft’s Word which create ‘flowable’ e-books.

With Book Creator One you can create 1 book for free. When you’re ready to make more books you can upgrade to unlimited books through a simple in-app purchase. The free version is great for trying out Book Creator before purchasing it.

With the paid version Book Creator for iPad you can create as many books as you like and there is no in-app purchase. This version is ideal for educational use. The full version includes comic book themes and templates that aren’t available in the free version.
