First iBooks Author Medical Textbook – for free


The first interactive medical iPad iBook by the iBooks Author DIY Tool arrives in Apple’s bookstore, free to download.

The autor of „The Podmedics Do Surgery“, Dr. Wallitt, stated in an interview (highlighting by me):

From a technical perspective it was incredibly easy to create. In the past, to create a similar textbook would have required a detailed knowledge of Xcode, Objective-C and Cocoa touch. However with iBooks author, Apple have created a gateway for anyone with any word processing ability to create compelling and high-quality content.

It’s bold to prognose that in 12 months time there will be a lot of medical textbooks in the Apple store, some for free, some for little money? And even some German ones? Stay tuned!
