iBooks 3, iBooks Author Now Include A Social Media Component
Little noted yesterday during the Apple announcement was one of the biggest things that’s happened in books since Gutenberg–iBooks 3 books for the iPad now have social connectivity in them–meaning, you can share a section of a book with a friend via Facebook, Email, Twitter and Messages.
Say you’re studying in a book and you hit a part that confuses you. But you’re reading in a remote location, with WiFi or 4G service though, and you can share a note with a friend about that part of the book you’re reading and say, “Hey, isn’t this Rio Azul Mask in Dr. Mark Van Stone’s 2012: Science & Prophecy of the Ancient Maya just wickedly cool as a 3-D animation?”
Well, that’s now available in books for the iPad. And it is going to further revolutionize how books are made and used and learned with throughout the world.
At Claxton Creative, LLC, in Dallas, we are building these books. If you have a manuscript ready for conversion to the iPad as a multi-touch, interactive book, we want to talk to you today.
