Apple has released the free, yes free, iBooks Author app. The OS X application is aimed at any author wanting to create any type of ebook.
The app features a number of templates that are available for authors to quickly get started on their next project. Video and audio can be dragged right into the project’s window. You can also interact with other applications such as Keynote, for adding slides, iBooks, for previewing the ebook and iTunes for syncing. There is also a neat feature that lets you preview a book on the iPad via the USB sync cable.
This is great for many Envato readers and users. If you have ever wanted to create an ebook, whether is a WordPress tutorial or a guide for freelancers, you can now take advantage of the full power of the iPad and HTML5 with ease. This is your chance to do so without having to learn a bunch of code. Even if you have HTML knowledge, you can also insert custom HTML anywhere in your book.
iBooks Author is a free download in the Mac App Store. You can download it right now, if you have a Mac running OS X 10.7 Lion.
