    Apple Launches Free iBooks Author Mac App


    In conjunction with its other educational announcements today, iTunes U and iBooks 2 for iPad, Apple also launched a free Mac app, iBooks Author, which enables anyone with a Mac to create stunning iBooks textbooks, cookbooks, history books, picture books and much more, and then publish them in Apple’s iBookstore. Authors and publishers both big and small can use the Apple-designed templates provided with the app to create their books, with the choice of a wide variety of page layouts. With iBooks Author you can add your own text and images by simply dragging and dropping, and you can also use the Multi-Touch widgets to easily add interactive photo galleries, movies, Keynote presentations and 3D objects. In a news report on iBooks Author, AppleInsider points out that for those authors who already have an iTunes Connect developer account, they will have to create a second Apple ID that is associated with the new iBooks Author app in order to sell their books on the iBookstore.

    Although I do own both a Mac and an iPad I feel uneasy about the fact that you need the two devices as a prerequisite to using iBooks Author. Will there be an app that needs three devices one day?
