EBook Magic, the app to create photo books on the iPad, was recently updated. The app offers several template options and tools to create and share photo ebooks. EBook Magic is a good shortcut to help anybody, even total newbies with no previous experience, in the task of assembling a photo book in minutes without having to go through all the hassle of starting everything from scratch.
What’s new in version 1.5? Apart from several improvements and bug fixes (including the bug made the app crash when adjusting text), there are two major additions in the latest version of eBook Magic.
- iPad camera support
You can now add photos taken directly with your iPad instead of importing them. Previously, eBook Magic only allowed to use images imported from the device’s albums, which could have been a pain for those users that simply wanted to add photos right away. Given the possibilities offered by iPad 2’s camera, being able to add photos taken in-app makes things much easier in some instances.
- EPUB output
EPUB, the open ebook standard that replaced the older OEB (Open EBook), has become a widely popular format for publications over the recent years and thus it is now for many the primary choice. EBook Magic now offers the possibility to save ebooks in this open format and optimizes them for displaying on iOS devices.
EBook Magic is available from the App Store for $3.99/€2.99/£2.49.
