I tried it yesterday on two of my Macs and ended up uninstalling it. From my wife's iPhone, the iMessage text would arrive to both of my iPhone and my Mac because I registered the same iCloud ID account with i(Messages) on both devices. However, from my iPhone, the iMessage text would only arrive to my wife's Mac or my wife's iPhone even though the same iCloud account was registered on both of her devices. Additionally, she would have two threads from me on her iPhone...
I'm posting a link to a good write-up on the new Apple's iBooks 2 format (.ibooks). It appears that even though it is based on ePub 3, it has so many proprietary extensions that it is basically a new proprietary format. Perhaps, ePub 3 is not up to the task of interactive books, but at least, iBooks 2 (the app) should be made compatible with ePub 3, and iBooks Author should have an option to create ePub 3 books. Then again, this means that people would be able to create...
There is no ePub support in iBooks Author.
You can't open an ePub book in iBooks Author. You can't even export into ePub from iBooks Author. You can insert text from Pages or MS Word into iBooks Author (good luck on preserving the formatting) and then export into the new format (.ibooks). You can also save it in the iBooks Author native format (.iba). So, for authors who have a feature book as plain text, this would work. For those who are going to write their entire book in iBook Author, this would work as well....
Exactly, what????
I will ignore the troll and will not bite. It is curious, though, that Pages have been able to export files into the ePub format for a year and a half now, but the newly released iBooks Author cannot do this. This is especially strange because the entire iBooks store is based on the ePub format. I would have liked iBooks Author much more if it could open ePub books, edit them, and then save (or export) in the ePub format. I have never done any book authoring, but have...
I haven't tried it yet, but it appears that the .ibooks format is the one you could transfer to the iPad, not the .iba format. The .iba format is the format in which you can save the book on which you are working in iBooks Author. Once the book is ready, you have to export it to the .ibooks format. As for transferring the book to the iPad, Apple has just released iTunes 10.3, and iBooks 2 for iPad, so I think you can add your eBook (exported into the .ibooks format) to the...
I don't have Pages - I am waiting for new iWork to be released. I have been using MS Office (first '08 and then '11) ever since I switched from PCs four years ago, and frankly, the new iWork cannot come out soon enough for me at this point. I just don't feel like buying the old version unless Apple decides to provide free upgrade to the new version. I know Apple is not making a lot of money on iWork, but if they announced a free future upgrade, they could have had so many...
I have downloaded iBooks Author and have tried to open the ePub books that I had purchased from Cisco Press - they are non-DRM ePub books that I can read on my iPad and iPhone, using the iBooks app in iOS. Here's the problem - I cannot open any ePub books in iBooks Author. So, my hopes that iBooks Author would not only allow one to publish eBooks, but also read non-DRM ePub books ,as well as Apple DRM ePub books purchased in iBooks store, have been dashed. When you...
