Like a miniature version of InDesign, Book Creator might be the new pasting-a-fanzine-in-mom's-basement
The iPad is just for content consumption, right? It looks like somebody forgot to send that memo to the folks at Red Jumper. Their app — Book Creator — lets you quickly and easily make e-books on your iPad and export them ready to read in iBooks, or to submit for sale in the iBooks Store.
Watch the video of the app in action and you’ll see its a kind of InDesign Lite. You can add photos from the iPad’s library and put text in boxes. These are all resizable with automatic guidelines and snap-in positioning, and you can layer things on top of each other, sending objects forward and back as you please.
Once done, the resulting book can be opened in iBooks or sent to Dropbox, and from there you can e-mail it to friends, kids (it’s a great way to make a children’s book) or submit it to the iBooks Store, safe in the knowledge that it meets all of Apple’s technical requirements.
It’s also a pretty nice way to author a PDF if you use it in conjunction with the growing range of iPad PDF converters. Your next e-zine is going to look a lot better than the last one.
