A good start, but....
This app has potential. It is intuitive for the kids and it's easy to add photos. The problems I encountered while using this with my second graders need to be fixed before this this becomes our preferred app. There is no return key to use while entering text- we need to be able to start a new paragraph without using the space key to get to the next line. The book does not display correctly in iBooks when opened there. The text is cut off at the bottom of the page. This was extremely frustrating after my students worked so hard to publish their books about Abraham Lincoln. The cover of the book is only displayed on the shelf, not when the book is being read. The text was displayed incorrectly when the books were being viewed on the scribblepress web site. (overlapping text from adjacent pages, font and color issues). This is an interesting problem because there is a default font that can't be changed. It would be nice to be able to actually email the book itself instead of a link. It is multiple steps because I need to put the completed books on 12 or more iPads. At this time I have to email the link to myself, go to the website, download the books, then email the ePub files to the iPads. Too many steps-a waste of time with 30 students. I understand that Scribble Press is in business to make money. I think the parents will purchase the books if teachers let the kids use it to publish, and don't mind not being able to print the books in order for that to happen. Like I said earlier, this has potential to be a great educational, creative app for students, but it is not quite there yet.

The Next Big Educational App!!!
This is an EXCELLENT app and has so much potential for any classroom! If you are a teacher, this is a MUST HAVE app for your students! The possibilities are endless on how students can use this! Even if your not a teacher and just have kids, they will have hours of fun creating and sharing their work! This is the new upcoming app for education and it's only a matter of time before this app is featured on the "New and Noteworthy" section in the app store!!!

Great for kids and adults!
Just amazed at the sheer creativity and thought that went into this app. The story starters, art tools, stamps, gallery including public, and the thought of getting an actual book is next to amazing. My daughter is working on her masterpiece and can't wait to share it with the world and get a physical copy.

Great App for Kids
This app is simply amazing. Melding the art capabilities of the iPad and adding storytelling elements makes it easy for kids to create meaningful books that will sure to delight in the digital future. Also very excited that in the future you can download it to Scribble Press and they can provide a "hard copy" for the grandparents. Great idea and well executed. With the new version, you can submit your kid's work and make actual books, cards, etc! Great addition.
