iBooks Author is software developed by Apple to create electronic books (eBooks). iBooks Author is uniquely designed to create interactive eBooks that take advantage of the functionality and portability of the iOS and Mac OS X devices. While the software is designed for creating interactive books, it is also possible to export your eBooks in PDF and text formats so they can be viewed on other devices (e.g., Android tablets/phones, laptops). Unfortunately the interactive pieces will not function in these formats.
