What it is: an app for creating e-books (with fantasy/dragons theme)

What you do with it: create pages of your e-book by inserting and editing backgrounds, characters, objects, texts and speech bubbles (there are over 100 items to choose with). Once on a page, the objects can be edited moved, resized, flipped, rotated). After the book is created it can be saved to library or edited. There is one sample story included.

What we liked: the concept (creating your 'own' books by parents), number and quality of items to choose from, good editing options (e.g. you can adjust colors of many objects, change settings of backgrounds like night/day sky etc), visual guide how to use the app.

What we didn't like: navigation and the editing tools could be more intuitive. No options to change the order (layers) or locking objects on the page. No option to change the font size. An option to share created books with other users of the app would be a nice upgrade.

Note about ads: apparently the app is ad-supported but during our tests we didn't encounter any (a only nagging 'upgrade to full version without ads) pop up. The upgrade available as in-app purchase is $1.99.
