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!

Transcript for 9/25/11 #storyappchat: Red Jumper!

Dan Amos of Red Jumper guest hosted this terrific chat, and answered questions about their new Book Creator app, which is a tool for making fixed layout iBooks. He graciously answered our questions and gave us a peek into some of the upcoming features that will be added to the app.

We also gave away two free copies of Book Creator, courtesy of Red Jumper. Thanks, Dan!

All the details are in the transcript above–and remember: we’ll do it again this Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. Don’t miss it!

We are thrilled to have Dan with Red Jumper with us this Sunday (September 25) to guest host our weekly #storyappchat. They’ve just released their Book Creator app for the iPad, which allows anyone to easily create a fixed layout picture book for the iBookstore in ePub format. They are the first to create a professional-level tool which lets you publish a horizontal-format picture book to the iBookstore–and their app is only $6.99.

Bring your questions for Dan–I know I will! We will see you this Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. EDT–just use the #storyappchat tag to chime in.
