Apple iBooks Author App Lets You Make Your Own Books, for Free

Thu, 01/19/2012 - 5:46am

Apple announced a new iBooks Author App on Thursday that makes creating an Apple ebook a drag-and-drop process.

Using the app, which was announced at the same time as a new textbook experience for iPad, users can drag a Word file into a book creation space. The app automatically determines the best way to lay out the book and creates appropriate sections and headers. Users can then drag and resize images within the text and add terms and definitions.

Users can preview their books on their iPads or publish them directly to the iBook store.

Apple’s Peter Schiller called iBooks Author “the most advanced, most powerful, yet most fun ebook authoring tool every created.”

You can judge for yourself whether he’s right, starting today. The app is free and available on the Mac App Store.
