The Book Creator templates that we've added to the online version aren't yet available in the iPad app. So you won't be able to use the builder in the same way.
However, we have made the full templates available for you to download and import into Book Creator for iPad.
They are located inside this Google Drive folder. You can either add the whole folder to your Drive, or use the links in this article to download individual templates and add them to Book Creator.
Method 1: Adding templates from the Google Drive folder
You'll need to install the Google Drive app to your iPad first, then make sure you have saved the Book Creator Templates folder to your Drive.
Open the Drive app on your iPad and navigate to the Book Creator Templates folder
Tap on the template you want to import - you'll probably see a message such as 'Unsupported file type' - this is because it cannot display the .epub file in Drive. It's nothing to worry about.
Click on the 3 dot menu in the top right of the toolbar and then click Open in.
You'll get a message saying 'Preparing to export' as it downloads the template.
You should then see a popup asking how you want to open the file - tap on the Book Creator icon.
Here's that whole process:
Method 2: Using a link from this page
You can use one of the links below to open the template directly into Book Creator for iPad.
Make sure to navigate to this page in Safari on your iPad
Tap on a link to a template in the table above
Google Drive will open in Safari
Tap the Download icon in the top right (the downwards arrow in a tray)
A message will pop up. Tap the Download link
You'll see a little icon appear in the toolbar - a circle with a downwards arrow - tap on this to access the downloaded file
Tap on the name of the file and it will open a new screen
Now tap on the Share icon in the toolbar and choose Book Creator
Here's the process:
Using the templates in Book Creator for iPad
Each template comes with every page pre-loaded, so you'll have to rearrange and delete pages as you need to, and get used to editing the text, images and other items on each page. This is covered in more detail in our support article about using templates.
