Book Creator App

I installed the Book Creator app on my iPad this morning.  I used it to create a book of my daughter’s sight words.  With her help we recorded the words on the iPad.  It was a easy program to learn.  We were able to export it out as an ePub, a PDF and a video.  This only took a few minutes.  It will be easy to create a book each week for her to study.   The app cost $5 in the App Store.   It is available on iOS, Android and Windows mobile.  I recommend trying the free version out.   Here are links for the video  and ePub.  

I hope this helps and email me if you have any suggestions holcomb.ca@gmail.com.

Creating and Sharing Live Photos

Live Photos have been part of iOS for a little while.   I have been experimenting with it to see its potential.   I used it last week to take pictures of my daughter at practice.  I was trying to take some action shots.  With Live Photos I was able to catch her in action. It didn’t matter that I didn’t snap the photo at the exact right time.  


In case you are not familiar with Live Photos, they are essentially a 3 second video that pauses in the middle.  I am not sure how that I will be able to use it except to share it on social media with family and friends.   I look forward to see what the future will hold for this feature.   

If you want to know more about this feature be sure to watch my video.
