The Perfect iBooks Companion

your iBook with
powerful features

Creating interactive content for iBooks has never been easier. Tumult Hype's simple yet powerful animation and timeline tools empower you to create amazing animations built for iBooks Author and iBooks.

First-class Widget Production

Tumult Hype's fast learning curve and intuitive features lets you focus on content, not code.
Export in one step: drag the pre-built .wdgt package onto your book, and you’re done.

Automatic Widget Creation

Tumult Hype wraps your animation into the .wdgt format during export, supports iBook features for smooth playback, creates widget thumbnails, and more.

Inline & Full Screen Support

Easily create animations that play directly on the page without interaction, or select a predefined size to create full-screen immersive widgets.

Retina Assets Support

Dropping high resolution images into Hype automatically generates multiple versions to support sizes ranging from small iPhone screens to iBooks for Mac.
