Let readers browse Keynote presentations with customised animations — inside their textbooks. iBooks Author includes intuitive controls for slide navigation and optional self-playing presentations.
Pictures go further when they’re interactive. Callouts and pan-and-zoom features add even more to the experience.
Instead of seeing just one image on the page, readers can swipe through an entire collection of interactive photos and captions with a finger. They can navigate the gallery using photo thumbnails or step through images one at a time.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but sometimes it can use a few more. Pop-Overs let readers tap an image to reveal a window of additional information, images or other data to give more context.
Video and audio bring any subject matter to life, anywhere on the page. Readers will experience text and images — instead of just reading and viewing them. Movies can play automatically, and iBooks Author allows any frame of a movie to be the poster frame.
Let readers test their knowledge using a variety of question types: multiple choice, choose the correct image, label the image or a mix of all three. Authors can include six possible answers to each question.
Readers can interact with 3D objects by touch. So instead of seeing just a cross-section of the brain, they can manipulate a 3D image to see all the way around it. iBooks Author gives book creators the option to adjust the background, allow readers to rotate the object freely, or constrain its movement to horizontal or vertical rotation.
Create your own HTML widgets using your favourite text editor or third-party app, then add them to your book alongside the text. Web-based, dynamically updated data keep examples current.
