During my internship, I need to plan and produce an interactive ebook about water and its cycle for kids. For some time, I was trying to find a proper way to do that, since there are some tricky things involved when it comes to the platforms. In the end, we agreed that I should just try to do it for iPad, then I can try out the iBooks Author and see if it's any good.
There are already many useful interactivities built in the iBooks Author, but I find them somewhat simple. My colleague mentioned, that maybe I can use Tumult's Hype to add some widgets into the soup. In the end I bought the programme and have been trying it out a week or so now. And I must say that I like it.
The programme is still very young and many features are not there yet, but for me it's very useful tool to do neat stuff with HTML5 (and to wean myself from Flash) without the trouble of pure coding. (This is not really an advertisement, more like pure joy that I've found a useful programme for myself that I enjoy using.;)
