Topic for 6/26 #storyappchat

Seems like there is a lot of chatter today about Pottermore, J.K. Rowling and the wizarding world. While it’s hard to compete with that, I will at least share the topic for this Sunday’s #storyappchat:

iBooks vs. apps–do stories with limited or no interactivity belong in the iBookstore instead of the App Store?

There has been a recent push by Apple to move stories from its app marketplace into the iBookstore. Apple has even added the ability for content creators to add a voiceover to their stories published in the iBookstore. As developers, writers/illustrators and consumers: does this make sense? Do you enjoy content as apps, iBooks, or both? Which do you prefer? What are the advantages, if any, from a developer’s viewpoint? Where do stories ultimately belong?

Come and share your opinion at 9:00 p.m. ET on Sunday evening, June 26. I look forward to a lively discussion and will see you then!
