First Impressions of Apple iBooks Author

apple ibooks author softwareApple launched iBooks Author this week and it’s pretty amazing. ¬†Basically, it’s free software that allows you to create media-rich, interactive ebooks. ¬†It’s available for download on the Mac App Store.

Typically, this has been a pretty difficult task, but iBooks Author is so simple because it plays nice with Pages, Keynote and several other forms of media available on your Mac.

I spent a couple hours working in iBook Author and after importing some existing content from Pages, I had an ebook ready to publish rather easily and quickly.
