Creating Story Apps for Kids on Android, Tablet, iPhone, and iPad

Many children’s book authors are turning to the storybook app and ebook formats to self-publish their books for Android phones, Tablets, iPhones, and Ipads.

Some examples of children’s stories published for Android, Tablet, iPhone, iPad, and the web:

The ebook format (iBook, Kindle, etc.) apparently requires some xhtml knowledge.  The app format can require knowledge of a programming language like Objective-C (iPhone, iPad) or Java (Android, Tablet) but now there are also tools to make app creation easier for non-programmers.

Tools that make storybook app and ebook creation easier:

Game Salad
Active Reader by Tall Chair
Composer by Demibooks
Interactive Touch Books
Kwik
Moglue
Push Pop Press
Talespring

Falling Stars for the iPad

I first downloaded it because it was beautiful but then I began to play with it. It completely transcends its good looks into a playground of musical fun for any age. Swiping your finger across the screen creates chords for your falling stars to play. Change the tempo with just a tap on the stars in the sky. What a great app to show off your new iPad!
