Open Mic Night for #storyappchat THIS Sunday, July 21, 2013

Plan to drop by the weekly #storyappchat this coming Sunday [July 21] at 9 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. Pacific) for Open Mic Night. That’s right–the topic or topics are up to YOU. The possibilities are endless:

  • Writers and illustrators: ask the developers about the ins and outs of getting your story built into an app or ebook
  • Story app developers and story app service providers: meet and get to know talented digital artists and writers; find out what your users like and don’t like about your apps
  • Moms, dads, teachers and caregivers: find out about new apps for your kids, and discover how they were created

Since you can create your own topic during the chat hour, there’s no reason why we won’t be seeing YOU this Sunday night at 6 pm PT/ 9 pm ET. Use the #storyappchat hashtag, and tweet away!

P.S. Try using our new #TWUBS account, http://twubs.com/storyappchat and follow @storyappchat for resources, transcripts and updates!

Transcript for the 7/14/13 #storyappchat: Sponsored Apps

Here is the transcript for the July 14, 2013 #storyappchat, a very lively discussion on a rather controversial topic, which was “Sponsored Apps: Finding the Right Balance.” Enjoy and we’ll see you next week!

Transcript for the 5/26/13 #storyappchat: Developing for Android

Wow, I am really sorry I had to miss this discussion, because it was full of great links, resources, stats and opinions on creating apps for Android, from people who have been there. Luckily for me, though, I have access to this transcript (just like you) which contains a rather plain but complete capture of the entire thing. So I can benefit from last night’s wisdom, almost as if I was there in person!

Don’t miss the next #storyappchat on June 2, when we’ll discuss the pros and cons of skeuomorphic interfaces. Details later, but plan to join us at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific!

Transcript for the 5/19/13 #storyappchat: iTunes Descriptions

Quiet little chat last night, but still filled with good information, thought-provoking questions, and valuable opinions from the #storyappchat community. Peruse the chat in its entirety via the transcript above, and be sure to join us every Sunday evening at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT for high-quality discussion every week about storybook apps and ebooks for kids!

Transcript for the 3/31/13 #storyappchat: Ron Martinez

Illuminating chat last night, not just about the capabilities of Aerbook, but also about the current state of children’s app/ebook publishing in general, and where we might be headed. Huge thanks to @RonMartinez [Aerbook’s founder] for helming our discussion–I think Aerbook is definitely a platform to keep an eye on over the next several months.

Remember, we hold our little roundtable every Sunday evening at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific, so clear some space in your calendar for the next chat, OK?

Transcript for the 2/17/13 #storyappchat: Music

Last night’s #storyappchat was full of tips on how to find music for your storybook app–attendees shared their favorite resources and everyone seemed to agree that music should not be added to any app unless the ability to adjust volume and mute tunes and sound effects is provided. After all, nobody wants music to interfere with the story, right?

Details provided in the transcript above for those of you who weren’t able to join us. PLEASE NOTE: we’ll be taking next Sunday off due to the Academy Awards, but will be back in full force on March 3, when we’ll talk about taking advantage of social media beyond Facebook and Twitter. Make plans to pop in, and in the meantime, enjoy the break!
