Hi Sue, I really like your suggestion! For there to be a community of readers, there necessarily has to be a community of writers. It could be anything from fiction to non-fiction. Would be really great!

Helikon | iBooks van Malmberg onder de loep

Helikon | iBooks van Malmberg onder de loep | Ebooks, interactive iBooks & iBooks Author | Scoop.it

Je kon er op wachten natuurlijk, er moest op een gegeven moment wel een grote educatie uitgever zich aan de iBooks gaan wagen. Na de verschillende experimenten met traditionele content verpakt / verstopt / netjes aangeboden in eigen Apps (Schooltas, Boekenlezer / Studiekit / Tablisto) heeft uitgeverij Malmberg een voorzichtige eerste poging gedaan om lesmethodes in de vorm van een iBook aan te bieden.

"Longer text book apps – a hybrid of a book and an interactive game – are an emerging trend in the literary landscape. They can be read on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, so anyone with a portable device can carry a library in their pocket. As someone who has always loved to read, I can’t think of a more wonderful thing."

Bob Baker's Book Promotion & Marketing Blog: Two Words That Can Turbo-Charge Your Life as an Author

Bob Baker's Book Promotion & Marketing Blog: Two Words That Can Turbo-Charge Your Life as an Author | Ebooks, interactive iBooks & iBooks Author | Scoop.it

But I've discovered a surprising thing about them: These words are often misunderstood by many people, especially writers and authors.

Here they are: "serve others."

De tamelijk briljante app Book Creator waarmee je op je iPad heel eenvoudig prachtige digitale boeken kunt maken heeft een update gekregen waarmee het mogelijk is ook video (gemaakt met je camera of met Explain Everything bijvoorbeeld) aan je epubs toe te voegen. En dat is echt wel heel erg cool en het was zo’n beetje de laatste grote en veelgevraagde feature die nog ontbrak in de App. Vanaf nu kun je dus bijna iBooks maken met deze App. Downloaden dus want voor die €3.99 is het echt een must have.
