It's got everything
This app is sheer delight. You can make the most wonderful little books with any combination of text, sound, clipart, your own photos or your own drawings. There are other apps that offer only one of the many features included here - the ability to add text or artwork to your own photos, for example. The addition of Word Art Wrap is yet one more amazing feature. This app just makes me smile every time I use it. Thank you to the folks at miSoft!

One of my least favorite apps
This app gets plenty of good reviews, so it must work well for some people. It does have a lot of features, but none of them seem to work smoothly on their own, and they definitely don't work well together for me. I've worked my way through the features to put together a few books in video format, but every single time I try to upload a video book the app crashes. The app doesn't cost much, so if you get even one good book from it then it's worth the money, but for me it's just been a complete waste of time. I wanted to like this, but I hate to waste time on something that just crashes anyway.

Every Feature but Landscape
To quote customer service,"Landscape is supported on iPad, but not iPhone/iPod touch". Well that leaves me out. And the old fingers are just too fat for those little buttons.

Great for writing down those stories you tell your kids
I downloaded this app last night after telling my son a new story we made up about some tractors at bedtime. I thought I could use the office document viewing/writing app I had, but it had no way to insert pictures? So, I bought this and hunted down some clipart. I used a sketch app to combine some tractor clipart with a muddy road for my background, and in a few minutes I had a title page and a tractor making a new road. I think the app was rather intuitive, and the help page is reasonably clear. It seems you can only import certain sizes or formats of pictures as stamps, but this wasn't a big issue, as you can use big pictures as a background. I would like to see a reader mode that let's you read the book with just page turning arrows instead of having to export it, but it was easy to export to PDF and email it to myself then access my webmail and open with iBooks. The app occasionally crashes on reopening, but it apparently saves as you go, because relaunching again always brought up my latest revisions even if I hadn't saved them. My export to video did fail due to iPad falling asleep I think, but everything else about this app is great so I give it 4 stars. Start writing those stories down today and buy this app.

Getting better
I had originally gave this app a 2 however emailed the developers and they gave me a very surprisingly quick response. I am not going to lie some of the things could be improved unless the developers write me back and explain how to do what I need but I will say that my previous statement was easily fixed with a little help. So if you are not happy with this app or have questions contact the developers and they are happy to help.

Great app+excellent customer service=exemplary company
The purpose of a review is to give constructive criticism: say what is useful about the app and what can be added or changed in the app to make it worthwhile. That being said, I use this app with my special needs students to create simple stories and it's very engaging and hands-on. Customer service is excellent. They even follow up with you, eager to help if need be. Keep up the good work and keep the updates coming.
