5 apps for creative iPad storytelling

2. Creative Book Builder, $3.99
Write and build e-books with this app, and read them on any epub reader (or export to PDF). Images and video (remotely hosted to reduce file size) can be added to books and teachers can also plug in various assessment features, such as quizzes.

3.  FlipBook, $4.99
Have students create animations and turn them into flip books to illustrate hard-to-explain concepts. The app includes drawing tools and image import, as well as features designed to simplify the animation process. A free version with reduced functionality is also available.

4. Demibooks Composer, Free
Combine images, text, music, animation, and more to create realistic-looking ebooks, ideal for telling complex stories. Users build their stories by creating pages, and then linking them together via navigation at the front of the book. There is a free version and a $9.99 version with additional features.

5. PortaPoet, $1.99
A poetry-writing aid, this app helps users find rhyming words, organize poems, and collaborate with other writers. Users can also publish their poems via the app and read others’ work. A haiku syllable checker is also included.
