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

Judging by the high-quality chatter we enjoyed last night, many of us see the iBookstore as a viable option for producing interactive books for kids. Be sure to study the transcript above for links and other valuable industry information from @LizCastro, @RonMartinez, @DrawBeard and @TheiPodTeacher. A lot of people who joined us last night had nice things to say about Book Creator, a WYSIWYG (graphically-based) ePub editor which makes it easy to create files for the iBookstore.

Remember, we convene every Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific to talk about creating storybook apps and ebooks for kids. Join us next and every week, OK?

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!
