Google Play Books for Android Can Now Upload Personal ePub and PDF eBooks – Supposedly

Google Play Books for Android Can Now Upload Personal ePub and PDF eBooks – Supposedly | Digital_publishing | Scoop.it

Google has updated their Play Books app (such a silly name for an ereading app, don’t you think?) to add some new features and stability improvements.

The most notable of the upgrades is the ability to be able to upload ePub and PDF ebooks from your Android phone or tablet to Google to read in the Google Play Books app. As you may recall, back in May Google first introduced personal ebook uploads for PDF and ePub ebooks from computers using modern web browsers, but it didn’t work with mobile devices or apps.

New Startups Focus on Tracking eBook Reading Data

New Startups Focus on Tracking eBook Reading Data | Digital_publishing | Scoop.it

How long does it take for someone to complete a book? When reading a steamy erotica, are you lingering over the sex scenes? Do readers ever finish the books they start, or skip right to the end? New startups are seeking to address these questions with new software and they intend on opening it up to writers, indie authors and publishers.

 

New startups such as Oyster are selling critical user data to companies about their subscribers, who access a copious amount of titles for a low monthly fee. These eBooks can then be read on a myriad of iOS, Android and mobile devices.

Colorado schools face challenges in transition to digital textbooks

Colorado schools face challenges in transition to digital textbooks | Digital_publishing | Scoop.it

Mesa County parent Elizabeth Chiono received letters from some of her son's teachers at the beginning of the school year informing her that he would not get textbooks in history and science classes.

 

The school district instead offers parents a link to online materials, causing the Chionos to have to rush to the school library before tests or to locate another computer whenever the outdated software on their own computer does not allow them to view schoolwork. It's a growing problem that has complicated the family's access to educational resources, but Chiono said other families face much more difficult situations.
