Is Demibooks a platform for artists to make money?

As an animator, is Demibooks a platform for artists and publishers to collaborate?
I'm looking to specialize in interactive iPad books. Trying to decide the right path.
Any feedback?

  • Demibooks Composer is an authoring platform to create an iPad app that is then published to the Apple App Store via the Demibooks Printshop for a fee. So the software does not facilitate collaboration like Basecamp, if that's what you mean.

    If you are an artist and don't want to learn how to program xCode but can learn how to apply pre-programmed behaviors to your graphics and own an iPad (which is what Demibooks runs on), then it's awesome. I'm currently using Demibooks to create an iPad app of my children's picture book, Bud the Bunny.

    Hope that helps a bit.

  • @Mike,

    Composer has the built-in ability to import and export it's project files using iTunes File Sharing and Dropbox. This enables an author the ability to export a project and send that to another party to import into their Composer app for further work, review etc.

    So in this respect you can collaborate using Composer as your platform... an author, for example, could put together their draft project with placeholders for illustration and animations, and then dropbox the project to an illustrator to work on the illustrations and animations. The illustrator could then insert their work into the project and then dropbox that back to the author or just dropbox a zip of the artwork for the author to place in their copy...

  • Besides specific features in the app, we'd like to explore Community in the app ecosystem further. To Mike's point, and what many others have raised, having a community where project collaborators can find each other may be desirable. Collaborators with different skillsets are needed for producing enhanced content and books on Composer.
