Before posting more on cloud-based reading experiences, I wanted to give everyone a quick update on the Vook beta. Everyday, users are working in Vook and helping us identify issues we need to address. Our engineering queue is essentially a cue taken from our users — ha! (Like that? Wait til you read my Vook produced comic memoir!)
Last week we fixed 48 issues that users caught — items ranging from Kindle file generation to adding the ability to delete projects.
I wanted to share three recent achievements, especially user Diane Massad's publishing success. Diane is a beta tester/author who worked in Vook to create her KidSKILLS Up and Over educational eBook, which she then released through Amazon. We love to see users creating and selling eBooks.
New Fonts We realized today we've added 53 new fonts since the beginning of January, with many more on the way. New fonts help users create unique eBooks with our robust styling tool.
Easier integration of multi-media It turns out that many users want to create video and audio enhanced eBooks. We're the only platform that allows for the quick addition of these elements, but it takes a lot of fine-tuning to get the mechanism right. Users are helping us make the process more and more straightforward. Also, some of us can now launch second careers in video compression.
We'll be showing off addtional functionality around Digital Book World next week, so you'll be hearing more soon. In the meantime, write me for further info on the beta or to share my extensive repertoire of engineering puns at Matthew@vook.com.comments powered by Disqus
