A brand new application was revealed this week at the Apple education event by the name of iBooks Author, this app brought on aside the iBooks 2 app update and the addition of interactive Textbooks to the fold. This event has played host to a set of updates to the iPad-based world of books, the iBooks Author app at the center of how you'll be making books yourself with your Mac desktop machine. Templates will be included and a simple interface will be in place so that anyone, no matter their background, can make a fully interactive book for use in the iBooks world.
You, the author of these fine books made with iBooks Author, are able to add a glossary, check your work at any time, bring forth the content you wish at a snap, and publish these books directly to the store. Anyone can create stunning, interactive books, they say, and with multi-touch widgets, photos, videos, and instant publishing to iBookstore, why not? This application is available today in the Mac App Store for free!
