Login & Logout of widgets with Reader Cloud

The majority of Bookry widgets are Reader Cloud (RC) enabled, which means that readers can save any data that they enter into your book to the cloud. So, if your reader spends time answering a quiz or playing a game, but they want to finish it at a later date, they can simply save it to the cloud and load it another time. Any data saved in a book will always be accessible from their Reader Cloud account and can be loaded onto any iPad. Reader Cloud enabled widgets include Quiz, Share This, Notepad, Form Builder, Maze, Sketchpad and Checklist.

Readers can also email themselves a drawing they’ve done with Sketchpad or tweet a picture of a Maze they’ve solved. Enabling sharing is optional and is controlled by you in the online generator.

Perfect for collaborative book authoring

Sharing Multi-Touch books created using iBooks Author can be difficult due to their large file size. So that’s why we let users create their own BookStore on to upload and share free books with others. For example as a business you may wish to build up a private BookStore for your colleagues only. Or, as an educator of textbooks you may wish to create an open BookStore for your school. Simply upload your .iba files to Bookry and place them in your BookStore. Then share the link to your book for others to download. It's that easy!
