iStorytime show you why apps are sometimes better than books (video)

iStorytime, makers of the Shrek Forever After iPad app, have announced a new book app called Danny the Dragon meets Jimmy. This appis the first to offer both narration and a sign language interpreter. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean.

This is one of the reasons why the book vs app discussion will never be won by books. You can't do this with a book.

You can buy the app in Itunes. It's $2.99 for the iPad, and the iPhone version is $.99.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. This is not a book. It’s a VIDEO. How can you compare books with videos? I don’t get it.

    • I didn’t say it was a book. I said it was an app. You couldn’t do this with a book and that’s the point.

      • Well, you can not fly with a car. and that is why there are cars and airplanes. My point is why are you trying to compare a book with an app/video?

        • I hate that nowadays people are trying to compare everything vs everything. That is non-sense. I love books, I love videos, I love interactive applications. Why put them one against the other ones. Each one has its places, its usefulness.
