Welcome to #storyappchat!

What was #storyappchat? It was a weekly Twitter meeting for those of us interested in creating storybook apps and ebooks for kids. We talked about all aspects of the business, from the latest software tools to avoiding burnout. Most of our weekly visitors identified themselves as:

  • Authors
  • Illustrators
  • Software Developers
  • Librarians
  • Educators
  • Consultants
  • App Reviewers
  • Parents

…but if you don’t fit into any of these categories, don’t worry. We’re happy to have you join us if you are interested in a behind-the-scenes look at children’s storybook apps/ebooks.

The weekly chats are no more, but people still use the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter to share news, information and to ask questions. Keep an eye on us!

We post topics on our Facebook page and on Twitter, so be sure to Like and Follow us there. After our chats, we generated a transcript so even if you missed the live discussion, you could benefit from the wisdom of the attendees.

Scroll down for transcripts from every #storyappchat session held since 2011.


Happy Holidays!
