Today, eBooks are in vogue because of the convenience and ease they offer to book readers. They are being created in various formats to support different devices and platforms. To provide readers with an enjoyable reading experience and to increase sales, certain categories of books are created as applications specific to devices such as iPhone, iPad, Google Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile.
At AEL Data, we have a team of seasoned professionals with expertise in the latest mobile technologies, content design and development, and instructional design principles. By leveraging our in-depth understanding of the publishing and eLearning industries, we help clients create feature-rich and engaging eBooks as applications. While developing a ‘Book-as-an-App’, we creatively use the following features and options with it:
- Multimedia rich graphics, audio, video, animation, etc.
- Location-aware functionalities
- Usage of accelerometer
- Social media connectivity – Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin etc.
Generally, the development cost of Book-as-an-App is higher when compared to the development of ePUB or PDF format of an eBook. To reduce this development cost, we develop applications using open standards and cross-platform/cross-device standards, and separate content from programming code whenever possible. In addition to our quality services, we support our clients at every step of the process from building the app, to getting it approved and launching it on the App store.
