, a book and e-book production app aimed at children, will now be available as a mobile app exclusively via the Barnes & Noble store
. Storytelling apps
are nothing new, but Tikatok has a digi-to-print feature that particularly piques my interest. The physical book is much more expensive, $18.99 to the e-book's $2.99, but it seems strange that these e-reader created books will be shot back to print. Sites like Blurb
also offer digi-to-print book making, but Blurb's mobile app
is completely separate with a robust social component. Tikatok is aimed exclusively at students with the privacy of a limited network called Tikatok Picks
. It seems like a platform especially useful for the classroom, it's a shame that it's exclusive on the cameraless, wifi only, resolutely niche Nook Color.
