eBook building just got a whole lot easier with the release of two very interesting apps. Book Creator [$6.99 – iPad] makes it easy to build very graphical books right on your iPad which can then be published through the iBookstore. The few minutes I’ve spent with it so far shows it has great potential for building family story books for young and old alike. The other option – Legend Maker [$49.99 – Mac] – offers even more potential. This is a serious book-building tool that can convert your manuscript to both ePub and Kindle’s Mobi formats. Both formats can contain images and the ePub version can even contain audio and video.
This weekend’s plans are to dig into both apps to see what they can do and how useful they will be for family historians. I can’t wait to get started!
