My fiancée isa teacher in grade school and most of the classrooms in her district have access to iPads. She has talked in the past about writing a children’s book and distributing it to her students’ iPads. Her and I have explored some of the self-publishing options available. But, none of them have jumped out at us and few of them have passable options for publishing to mobile devices (which is crucial given her plans for distribution).
The proof is in the pudding, I suppose, and it all depends on how truly easy it is to build apps with once it’s released, but Glide looks like it could be what we’ve been waiting for. I’ll certainly be keeping a close eye on its development.
