Demibooks Inc.

This free version of Demibooks® Composer Pro is the 1st iPad-based authoring software to create interactive book apps. Best bit? No prior coding knowledge required!

• “This may very well be the single greatest iPad creation tool yet”-iPadCurriculum
• Barrier to entry is broken! 4 stars for giving people like me the opportunity to create animated book applications without having to spend $5,000-$20,000. –Maximus Brown, AppStore Review
• “My project in particular took a great deal of time to build....I was thankful that the easiest part was putting it together on the iPad. I [compiled] everything in Composer over the course of a weekend.” - Natalie Murrow, student RISD

Produce rich, interactive content with the same platform used by independent storytellers, leading publishers, and schools around the world such as MIAD, Pratt Institute, Startup Middle School, and Parklands College. Schools use Composer for digital storytelling, introducing app and game development as well as teaching students coding basics. It is also perfect for interactive presentations, games, tutorials, even design prototypes.

Apply a sophisticated set of features- realistic physics, advanced animations, conditional behaviors - to create immersive experiences with their images, text, sounds, movies, and visual effects beyond the capabilities of standard ebooks.

===From our users ===

"There is no question in my mind that not only did we encouraged some writers and artist on their careers but everyone who participated in this program has a new sense of confidence and accomplishment." -Kristin Harris from Kirstin Harris Design

“When I was first introduced to Composer at a Virginia-State sponsored program for elite high school students, the app captured my interest the moment I started working with it. Composer provided a medium for me to transform my idea for an Air Hockey Game into a real iPad application....I was so impressed by the app's performance and the the team's support that I am currently working with my high school to integrate Demibooks into the curriculum of several classes.” -Ezzy Sriram, Langley High School

"...Our experience was fantastic. The features are incredible and very user friendly.....” -Mr Toonz, FarmToonz creating apps that promote learning by interacting

Simply the best!... BRILLIANT APP and FANTASTIC PEOPLE! -Mojave Magnolia, AppStore Review
