The following post is an excerpt from a press release by Red Jumper, the team behind Book Creator, a popular classroom app that allows students and teachers to produce their own eBooks. Winners of the award for Best Educational App at BETT 2015, we’re pleased to share the news that Book Creator is now available on Windows Desktop for the first time.
Book Creator for Windows is here
More than 15 million ebooks have been made with Book Creator for iPad and Android, and now the popular classroom app is receiving a Windows makeover and will be available on desktop devices for the first time. The developers are making the app free on the Windows store for a limited period following the launch.
Book Creator for Windows takes a blank-canvas approach to creativity that makes publishing and sharing ebooks easier than ever. With a simple and intuitive design, people of all ages can create their own international standard ePub files, and with a couple of clicks can become published authors.
