Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Skyreader™ Media, a leading developer and publisher of interactive children’s book apps for the Apple® iPad® and other mobile devices, announces the open beta launch of Skyreader Studio™. Skyreader’s new proprietary self-publishing platform is the industry’s first authoring tool focused on creating fully immersive interactive eBooks and supports all major eBook devices and formats. Currently in open beta, Skyreader Studio is expected to fully launch in Q1 2013.
Skyreader’s new platform is the first to offer a complete set of the self-publishing tools needed to create fully interactive and engaging content normally only achievable through expensive custom programming.
“Having worked with authors and publishers to create immersive interactive children’s book apps, we know what it takes to stand out from the crowd,” said Skyreader Media CEO, Kevin Gillis. “However, until now, authors and publishers have had to choose between settling for less-than-exciting experiences or spending tens of thousands of dollars in custom development to create truly great ones. With Skyreader Studio, creating the next-generation of storytelling will be simplified. Our authoring platform provides access to all major publishing formats and distribution channels.”
Current authoring tools for eBooks produce simple reading experiences that feature static text, simple graphics, and limited multimedia and interactive functionality. With the new Skyreader Studio platform, authors and publishers can go far beyond the traditional capabilities to easily create richer, more interactive, child-friendly experiences.
Skyreader Studio is a fully web browser-based authoring platform, featuring an instantaneous preview within the browser or on an iPad®. Output formats include native support for iOS and Android via the Skyreader Bookshelf as well as ePub2, ePub3, HTML5, to support all major eBook devices and applications.
