Book Creator allows anyone to create their own books using images, text, videos, and audio recordings. You can arrange your book in three different formats; portrait, square, or landscape. Each page in your book can include pictures and videos from your iPad’s camera roll and or from your iTunes library. In addition to the pictures and videos you can include as much as text as you can fit on each page. In fact, if you just want to have text on a page you can do that. If you would like to narrate your book you can tap the record button to add your voice to each page of your book. Every page in your book can have a custom color scheme…Book Creator could be a fantastic tool for students to use to create short stories or to create longer research papers that include multimedia elements.
The latest version of Book Creator allows you to combine books that you have created using the app. In fact, you can even combine books from multiple iPads. What this means is that you could have students work on the creation of a book together from separate iPads. Have each student work on a chapter then combine all of the chapters into one book.

With the latest update to Book Creator you can now include hyperlinks in your books, style individual words in your books, and import books. But to me the most exciting option is the option to combine books. To use the latest updates you will need to be using iOS 6.
