Book Writer, Good Effect

By David Kapuler

Retail Price: $3.99 regular ($1.99 during 2 year anniversary event)

Book Writer is an iOS app that lets users easily create multimedia digital books. Book Writer can be used with any curriculum, grade level, or subject.

Quality and Effectiveness
Book Writer is an ideal iOS app for digital storytelling that can be used for any grade level. The app can be used to “flip a classroom” as well as for mobile learning.

Ease of Use
Book Writer allows students to upload an image, video, or audio and even record narration with just a tap of the screen. Also, there is a detailed walk-through tutorial that users can do to help get started.

Creative Use of Technology
There are a lot of sites that lets users create books (e.g. Mixbook,), but Book Writer is the first iOS app I’ve seen specifically designed to let students create digital books. These digital books can be printed out via PDF or published to iBooks or Dropbox.

Top features:

    • Seamless Integration: can be used by any educator/student for any subject or grade level
    • Mobile Learning: a fantastic teaching tool to help students become 21st Century Learners
    • Innovative use of technology
