Transcript for the 12/4/11 #storyappchat: uTales

We enjoyed a lively and informative chat, helmed by Nils von Heijne of @uTales. Thanks so much, Nils! Don’t forget: these guys have a terrific site full of picture books and browser-based tools for creating them–and a collaborations group on Facebook for connecting authors and illustrators.

Get all the deets from the transcript above, and make plans to join us for the next #storyappchat on Sunday evening, December 11 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern!

Guest Host for 12/4/11 #storyappchat: uTales!

uTales LogoWe’re very excited to have @uTales joining us for this Sunday’s #storyappchat as guest host. uTales is a picture book storefront that has over 150 stories, accessible either by web or mobile device app (iPhone, iPad and soon for Android). Register for a free account to preview the books, and find out more about creating your own stories for the uTales platform. The site provides tools for creating books with sound, animation and interactivity, and shares 60% of the earnings with the content creators.

Parents who want to share the books with their kids pay either a $9.99 monthly fee for unlimited access, or pay per book fees, usually between 3 and 5 bucks each.

uTales has a blog and a FAQ page to handle common questions, and they have a Facebook community page for authors/illustrators. Gather any additional questions you might have and join us for #storyappchat THIS Sunday (Dec. 4) at 9:00 p.m. EST. We look forward to seeing you there!
