Enter an awesome App: Picturebook (iPad and iPhone)
The app is free to buy on the itunes store, and if you want to use your own photos in your stories, it’s a $0.99 in app purchase. Once you buy the photo option, you have that option permanently. Books can be viewed in the app, or can be exported by email (PDF copy), shared with other users, or sent to Facebook.
