Jumsoft Releases First Collection of iBooks Author Themes with ‘Book Palette 1.0’

Posted in Apple News, Mac, Miscellaneous on 02/02/2012 by Chris Hauk


Jumsoft has just released Book Palette 1.0 on the Mac App Store, a collection of templates and themes for Apple’s recently released iBooks Author platform.

9to5Mac reports:

The first release of many to come includes 10 templates from business to cookbooks that all include customizable layouts, covers, chapter pages, tables of contents, glossary pages, and everything included in the iBooks author app. It looks like Apple isn’t going to have an issue with developers selling additional add-on content for iBooks Author through the Mac App Store.

Although Jumsoft has designed the templates to be ready to go with the default designs and layouts, they explained just how customizable they are: “Most objects in the templates can be easily reshaped, recolored, moved, or removed. Use a variety of pre-designed text styles or opt for fonts of your choice to format your text for the best effect. Add matching gallery, video, or other Multi-Touch widgets and also modify their look to your own liking. In fact, feel free to create a book that is entirely yours.”

Book Palette 1.0 is now available on the Mac App Store for $2.99, and of course requires iBooks Author and Lion 10.7.2 or higher.
