DPS Single Edition is good for iPads but they would need to be very interactive to be approved by Apple.
thanks Bob. they will be very interactive.
any guesses if i can change a ebook into Android app?
one problem with my books. they will not look or read well on a small
screen. i need to make them tablet friendly.
i would hate to do all the work in indesign and then do a redo for android.
i watched the videos by unluckylion on youtube. this is the direction i
need to go.
thanks again Bob
Does anyone have a video showing how easy this is?
I'm not sure about "easy" - these should get you started (and there is a forum for DPS). You should also consider other formats, which may be more suitable for your content.
Thanks gents, hope to be as helpful as u have been some day.
It's the way you posed the question. Generally speaking, an App is not an eBook. An eBook is the generic name for a number of different digital book formats including PDF, ePub (fixed and flexible), mobi, Apple iBooks Author and so on. Each format has advantages and disadvantages. You should be able to find a format to suit your purposes. In fact you can produce your books in several formats say one for the Nook and one for the Kindle and by downloading the appropriate reader app, they can be read also on an iPad and other tablets!
Thanks Derek. When I found InDesign and how interactive I could make a
book. It's just what I was looking for. I believe the words I kept hearing
was it makes an ebook.
Being new to this game it was the only word I thought meant it was being
made by ID. Thanks for setting me straight.
Your comments will lead me to search out more answers.
You'll probably need some training. Personal training maybe the best, but most expensive, there are some useful books, such as http://www.amazon.com/ePublishing-InDesign-CS6-publications-smartphones-ebook/dp/B00AJ3J24 8/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1393399763&sr=1-1&keywords=Pariah+Burke
and there's the PepCon conference held this year in a Chicago in June http://pepconference.com and there is a range of excellent online tutorials from a Lynda.com such as:
And you can get useful advice from some of the gurus on this forum and the other Adobe forums, such as the DPS forum, on specific issues.
Thanks Derek1000. I finally found the videos that will get me thru. Making the books.
Not saying I'm done searching for the best answers to my newbie questions.
But I know have seen most of the steps to get me to where I want to be.
So, it's time to dive in and see where I end up.
