iBooks Author is a free App from Apple that allows you to create textbooks, cookbooks, history books, picture books, and more for iPad. There are lots of great Apple-designed templates that feature a wide variety of page layouts. Add your own text and images with drag-and-drop ease. What sets these books apart it the use of Multi-Touch widgets. They allow you to include interactive photo galleries, movies, Keynote presentations, 3D objects, and more.
The templates include lots of great layouts and text formatting, but you can change it all if you wish. You can import your chapters from MS Word or Pages, and you can add sophisticated mathematical expression with the new equation editor using both LaTeX and MathML.
All the work is done on your Mac Desk or laptop computer, then you preview your book on your iPad at any time during the creation process. Then submit your finished work to the iBookstore in a few simple steps. And before you know it, you’re a published author.
