Making your iBooks more exciting with the widgets that you can use in iBooks Author. The widgets allow you to add video and audio into the iBooks. I have use one to add a timer and I made it using Dashcode. If you don’t want to get into using DashCode there are some sites you can use that let you put in the YouTube URL and it makes the html widget for you. This makes it a breeze to have videos in your books, but they stream from YouTube rather than being embedded and making the file size too big.
