Transcript for the 12/9/12 #storyappchat: Will Terry

So glad to welcome Will Terry back to #storyappchat, and based on both the stuff he’s posted to his blog and the amount of high-energy discussion last night, he’s had his hands in a bunch of very cool stuff lately.

Catch it all in the transcript above, and remember: we do it every Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific. Make it a weekly ritual, how about it?



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!

Transcript for July 10 #storyappchat

This was a truly amazing chat, with attendance by most of the app-creation services and many passionate content creators tossing out their ideas for what would be part of their perfect story app creation tool.

I’d be doing a disservice to you if I attempted to summarize this chat–there were just too many high-quality ideas flying back and forth. Download the transcript, and enjoy 24 pages worth of wisdom and inspiration.
