LONDON (April 8, 2015) – More than 10 million ebooks have been created with Book Creator, the simple way for students to make ebooks on their tablets. The number one book app in more than 80 countries around the world, Book Creator brings student work to life by giving them the ability to use text, images, video, music and narration to tell their story.

Book Creator takes a blank-canvas approach to creativity, allowing students to fully realize their ideas without being limited to a strict format. Among the 10 million titles created to date, users have produced children’s books, picture books, photo books, journals and textbooks by authors of all ages. For example, author and Pixar employee Mike Sundy used Book Creator to publish a children’s book for his daughter. By utilizing the international ePub3 standard, ebooks published through the app have a place to live now and in the future.

“Book Creator is the core app when using iPads in my lessons,” said Adam Foster, a primary school teacher in Wolverhampton, UK and author of the Book Creator Teacher’s Guide. “The app is an important blank canvas, providing tools for students to share their learning and creativity in many ways. This has provided a perfect digital publishing platform, accessible to all and gives students a purpose, voice and audience.”

Its flexible format encourages creativity and collaboration among students and teachers with the ability to annotate work as it is being created. Students can share books and pages via Facebook and Twitter, and work can be imported from and exported to other apps for uninterrupted workflow.

“This milestone is a testament to how Book Creator engages its users,” said Dan Amos, developer of Book Creator. “This app provides a space for students and teachers alike to make their ideas come to life and share their stories with the world.”
