Lots of great stuff flying back and forth during the 9/18/11 #storyappchat. From the need for iBook review sites to choosing fonts for an ebook, we covered it! Enjoy the 18-page transcript–and we look forward to seeing you next Sunday, September 25 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern for a very special guest: Dan with Red Jumper! More details in another day or two–stay tuned.


Transcript for July 17 #storyappchat

Note: Brooks Jones is on summer hiatus for a couple of weeks. Carisa and I are filling in. —David Fox

Here’s the transcript from our July 17th chat, with guest host Rafiq Ahmed of @Demibooks talking about their upcoming story app creation tool, Demibooks Composer. It’s unique in that it’s an iPad app, and all of the content is assembled directly in the app (after preparing the art and audio assets in your tool of choice). More information at demibooks.com and you can get on their beta email list here.

A couple of points that really stood out. Their plan is to give the app away for free, at least for the initial few months after it’s released (there will be a charge to actually publish your book app, though). And owners of their Composer app can share their book creations with other owners, even without having to publish the app. Think of the opportunities for kids in school creating and sharing their own story apps!

Here’s the transcript… dig in!

Our next chat will be an open forum, topic to be announced, on July 24, 9:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. PT). Join us!
