Do you use iBooks Author? If so, you need to know about Bookry.
This newcomer to the edtech community puts powerful tools in the hands of authors in three distinct ways; with interactive widgets and analytics.
There is no coding required! Simply choose from the widget library, customize the settings and drag and drop it into iBooks Author.
What are the Widgets?
Free widgets include drag and drop, form builder, feedback, flickr galleries, google maps, instagram galleries, quiz builders, and a tool to open apps right inside your book just to name a few. To learn more about the free widgets available visit: www.bookry.com/author/widget/library/
Customizable widgets and server-based widgets are also available which allow the author the greatest flexibility in the development of their content.
Readers can also save and load their widget data to the reader cloud. This means that readers who are taking a quiz or playing a game wish to finish their activity later, they can stop and save their progress.
The “sharethis” functionality sets Bookry apart in the marketplace. They allow the reader to share their experiences within a book or a piece of content across their social networks (twitter, facebook, evernote) thus growing the audience for the book.
The analytics available from Bookry allow authors to better understand their readers. Quiz data, feedback, quantity of readers, and their reading patterns including which widgets and content they interact with gives clear insight into ways to improve or enhance the content for future versions.
Is Bookry Free?
There are both free and paid versions of the Bookry widgets. The free widgets carry the Bookry branding and the paid version is $125 per book to use as many widgets as you like. See: www.bookry.com/pricing/ for more information.
