Some Things Not Specified

This app is great - everything worked out as it said it would in the description, and I easily took videos and pictures, drew pictures, and added text. The only thing I dislike about this app is that I can not find any way to get back to home. I rebooted my tablet several times, and I attached it to a keyboard and pushed the "exit" button, but I could find NO way to get back to the home page. Otherwise, this is a great app.

It's a Trap!

I paid for the full app, and created my first book. It was easy to operate, adding pages, inserting text, drawings, images, and voice recordings. Moving the pieces around, changing font sizes, and changing which items appeared "on top" were simple and intuitive. However, now my book is done, I can only save it. NOT save for web, or any Export options. How am I to share my masterpiece? Even worse, I can't get back to the start. There's no home button, and no other way for me to exit the book I have created in order to start another, or do anything else but edit the book I've already made. The demo showed a library page of covers of created books, but how am I to get there? I can't begin to know. Shame on you CreateBook!!

Wonderful idea, usability and functionality not

I love the idea of this app for my kids but its difficult to use and lack basic functionality to print, email, even save and catalog easily. Its difficult even to create multiple books and the video functionality does not work. It's a shame because the idea is terrific.

Good but...

It doesn't let me export,shows some error :( Otherwise great!

Need the app to view the file.

i used this app for a project in History class and it worked really well! It could do everything in the description and came out looking nice. The user interface is really simple and easy to use. One problem is it only saves as a weird file type and I can't convert it to anything. The file is .crtb and it will not open in anything else so i can't share it with my teacher

Great Idea

We should be able to export to PDF format. Right now, the books export to some strange format that I can't open with any other app.

Has Potential; Poorly Executed Initial Run

I like the idea, and if I could figure out how to get it to work it might be worthy of five stars, but dropping it to three because I have absolutely no idea how to type, draw, or insert things. Nor is it clear how to export. Or open other e-books. Maybe it's just me, but the menu system seems terrible!

Great app!

Great app for kids to create their own book about a topic they have been researching. I skipped over the instructions initially and now I can't figure out how to see those instructions again. Plus, I can't find any info about this app online to help me out. So be sure to read the instructions before trying to play with it!

Was a good idea but doesn't work well

I feel like I've just wasted my money! I've installed, uninstalled and reinstalled. I can NOT get the menu back except after a fresh install and first opening the App.

Still learning

This app seems have some potential. Though, I am still learning using this app. So far so good :)
