FROM THE DEVELOPER
No.1 iPad app Book Creator joins Google’s push to take on Apple in the education market
Book Creator is the easy way to make ebooks on your tablet. After three years of success with the iPad app - 4 million books created and no.1 in 60 countries in the iTunes App Store, Book Creator is now available for Android.
The iPad app has found its place as a key educational app in classrooms across the world, putting publishing into the hands of students and enabling teachers to collaborate with classrooms in other countries. With Google ramping up Google Play for Education to take on Apple in the education market, it was an obvious choice for Book Creator to move across to the Android platform too.
Tony Vincent is a former classroom teacher and is now Learning and Technology Consultant at learninginhand.com. He said:
"Book Creator sits atop my list of the best educational apps for iPad. I’ve used Book Creator with learners of all ages, from kindergarten to adults. Its simplicity is refreshing, allowing authors to focus on their content. I’m so pleased the app is available for Android because this means more students and teachers can be digital book creators."
Dan Amos, Founder of Red Jumper Studio, said:
