Free web app builds iPad books and magazines


Looking for a way to easily publish content for iPads? iBuildApp thinks it has the answer.

iBuildApp claims its free application of the same name provides a simple method of self-publishing content such as ebooks, catalogues and magazines for the iPad.

The free web app provides drag-and-drop assembly of the publication, with the opportunity to upload custom buttons and backgrounds, as well as pasting or typing the content. RSS feeds and web links can also be incorporated, and social media services such as Twitter and Facebook are supported.

Completed projects can be published on Apple's App Store via the user's existing developer account at no additional charge, or for $US50 it can be published using iBuildApp's developer account. A third option is to pay iBuildApp $US199 to set up an App Store developer account for you, as an alternative to paying $US99 directly to Apple.

The source code of your app is available at no extra charge, but removing the iBuildApp branding from an app costs $US35.

"We want people to be part of the trend of digital publishing. It's a great way to build a global audience around your niche without the cost of print. With iBuildApp's publishing tool you don't need a developer. Its easy and free to publish your monthly magazines, newsletters, catalogs, or books on the iPad," said iBuildApp CEO Rafael Soultanov.

"We believe that a digital magazine or newspaper should feel like a media app, not like a magazine reader," he added.
