    Apple - I say this from the bottom of my heart - this tool is so underutilized and undervalued by you but it is so great. If you put half as much effort into this as you did into Garageband, you'd have an Adobe InDesign killer on your hands. Please reinvest in this amazing tool!

    Useless for me. Hard to customize, for example Chapter named and numbered automatic. I am making cookbook and want to organize by main dish, sides, appetizer etc instead chapter 1, section 2.

    that it will no longer open my .IBA file no matter what i do.. this is total BS. the fact that this program can’t read its own file is very disappointing, i have tried numerous times for the last month, and no luck. I will never ever recommand this program to anyone anymore.. Do your self a favor and don’t download this program cause it won’t even read its own files!

    I wish I knew what I was doing with this. They sure don't tell you like I am, and that is a dummy trying to figure out this stuff. Directions are not a 5 star by any means. They asssume everyone knows what they mean. I DO NOT. It's probably a 5 star if you know what you are doing but...if you don't: they get no more than a two star and that is just because of the name.
  • Expectations are so high for this app that its open for poor reviews BUT...

    For free you will not fined a better app on the market anywhere that can do what this app does. I have published books many books and ran into to all kinds of normal challenges only to find I was able to work around them with a little effort. Now I am woking on an animated treasure hunting book for children. Already I am so excited I want to release the first chapter without finishing the rest. Even the professionals will admit what they get for free is fantastic in this app. The publishing to billions is another, NO WHERE TO BE FOUND oversight by those with the low ratings. Don't let those wanting the app to be developed fast for them deter you from trying it. You will love it and agree with this review. In this case low stars simply mean they love it and want more yesterday! Notice how none of the low rating reviews state they will stop or quit using the app??? That says it all doesn't it? Try it yourself and enjoy the power of publishing your own work. For me I will gladly pay the cost if Apple ever so demands.
