Sharing from Book Creator to Showbie

Send your books from Book Creator to Showbie

You always could export your books from Book Creator to Showbie, but with the improved sharing capabilities of iOS 8, Showbie v1.5.1 allows you to seamlessly add books to your Showbie app directly from Book Creator, without leaving the app.

Note: you can send books up to 25MB, but for larger books you’ll need to upgrade to Showbie Pro.

Preview your ebooks within Showbie

Even more exciting is that you can now preview your Book Creator books within the Showbie app. We’ve tested this and the experience is fantastic – all multimedia elements work and it’s almost as if you are viewing the book in iBooks, complete with cool page-turning effects!
