Blurb’s New App Lets You Build A Book From Your iPhone or iPad

Usually when you think of making a photo book it involves loading up InDesign or Photoshop and spending a few hours on your computer. But Blurb is looking to make the process easier and more enjoyable with their new iOS App, which allows for users to create photo books directly from their iPhone or iPad.

The new app launched yesterday and users of the app will have a few options for what they want to do with their books. You have three page layout options, two size options, and two cover options. This may seem limited, but remember that the point of this app is to make the process simple and easy to complete in a short amount of time. It is possible that the capabilities will be expanded at a later time.


The books will be available in a 5×5 or 7×7 size, with the caveat to the 5×5 being that it is only available with a soft cover. Blurb is marketing this as a fast and easy way to make photo books while out on the go, taking an Uber to your dinner date, or walking home from your evening classes. It won’t replace your computer for professionals, but for a quick photo book for personal use, it seems to be an ideal blend of customization and simplicity.

The app is available now over on the App Store and you can start making your own books right away.
