Digital revolution hot topic at Book Fair | Culture | Storybook App Development | Scoop.it
Some experts already see the end of printed books as the digital revolution has thrown everything into question. But opinions on the future of books remain divided. They'll be hotly debated at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Will Terry - Children's Book Illustrator: Getting Your Story App Reviewed - Interview | Storybook App Development | Scoop.it

I believe there are 3 main ways to get your new story app or ebook noticed and bought many times over.

 

1. Make something AMAZING that changes the user/viewer/reader emotionally.

2. Tell your friends about it via social media and

3. Submit it to review sites. I strongly believe that advertising is for boring products so if the people you shared it with don't respond your time is probably better spent back at the drawing board. That's my plan anyway. 

I'll have an app in Apple's app store in early November if all goes according to plan (and I'll be making tutorials on how I did it so check back soon) so logically I've wanted to get to know who and where I should submit my app to for review. Why mess around I thought - go for the most prominent children's story app review site and ask the reviewer directly. What I got was very unexpected. Straight talk. You guys know I love straight talk. 

I love the answers Carisa Kluver of Digital Storytime gave me (some of her advice is what I've been preaching) and I'm so grateful that she was willing to give me her time. If you're at all interested in producing story apps you NEED to read this article ...

Two Essential Features for Digital Picture Books (a note to developers from your readers)

Two Essential Features for Digital Picture Books (a note to developers from your readers) | Storybook App Development | Scoop.it

Just this week, several Oceanhouse Media titles, from their popular Dr. Seuss collection, including Green Eggs and Ham, have added recordable narration and additional settings that include page guides for easier navigation.

 

This is an exceptional step and not an easy programming effort on the part of a major developer of book apps. It is also a change I am deeply grateful for as a parent, educator and reviewer of digital children’s books. I look forward to seeing more popular titles include these types of updates. They are free for anyone who has previously purchased the book apps, but not inexpensive on the part of the developer, so a thank you is in order.

 

Other major developers, like Auryn Apps, iStorytime and even Disney Digital Books, should also be commended for having so many flexible settings for audio and navigation. These settings are sometimes an afterthought in the process of creating a book app, but they shouldn’t be … the story is truly at the center of the process, but an app’s settings in the book category can make or break a great read ...
