Bookbin 0.9.5

Create eBooks in the blink of an eye by writing down your text and have the book enhanced with images, clips, as well as background music
Since writing methods have evolved into computer applications, it is needless to say that so did books. On the Internet these are stored in specific formats in which books are found and interacted with. Creating one also requires you to make use of a tool such as Bookbin, with the help of which writing a book for the virtual space becomes easy.

Insert text and media files

Running the application unveils a simple interface. The provided workspace is large enough to manage any form of data you decide to use in the project. The book you create can be populated with text that you either write down or copy from an existing document.

In addition, the application gives you the possibility to make use of media files of your choice. Enhancement can be done with the help of images, video clips, as well as a background sound.

Good but far from being a pro

Unfortunately, when it comes to text, editing options are considerably limited. You can only set several size settings, make it super or subscript, as well as creating a list with bullets. Font cannot be changed, nor can you add color to highlight bits of text.

Additionally, as simple as the interface may seem to be, you tend to get stuck while editing properties, such as author, title and several other technical details. Confusion also seems to rise while managing content and trying to handle images and the way they appear throughout the document.

In conclusion

To sum it up, Bookbin is far from being a trustworthy application of its kind. It's not packed with too many features to overwhelm you with choices, but it manages to somehow create confusion and leave a little something to be desired overall. In case your book is not intended to be too fancy, it can quickly wrap it up for you.
