Topic for the 1/27/13 #storyappchat: the iBookstore

Apple's iBook AppWhile it’s true we’ve done chats before on the topic of the iBookstore, we thought it made sense to revisit it, given the rise of one-stop DIY tools like Book Creator and excellent technical resources like the tutorials and how-to books from Liz Castro. With a little bit of help and an entrepreneurial spirit, anyone can create robust and very app-like titles for Apple’s iBookstore.

Of course, others are using Apple’s free iBooks Author tool to create content, and that’s pretty exciting too.

So: let’s talk about it this Sunday (January 27) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific. Just start using the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter about that time, and we will look for you then!

  1. Sorry I logged in just after the chat closed. I have just published in the iBookstore an alphabet book for the 21st century, animated and aimed at a broad audience, from young children to adults. The ibook uses sticks and stones to display the binary representation of the letters and associated words, thus teaching the relationship between language use in our world and in computers. There is also an associated page discussing the chosen image and there are sound files that can be played through links on the page or hidden as “easter eggs” within the images. The website for the book discusses the various audiences.
