    Vook will be releasing its entire library through the Android platform in the coming months, so stay tuned to our blog for the latest news!

    The Critics Are Loving Vook!

    When you work for a start-up, your company is like your baby. You wish that you could run around telling everyone how beautiful and brilliant and exciting it is. However, etiquette dictates that you keep quiet, hold your baby up to world and hope that everyone else thinks it’s amazing, too.

    This week, the world has been singing its praise for our baby.

    We started off the week with our 90-Second Fitness Solution Vook promoted on the front page of the iBook store.

    Then, the great reviews started rolling in.

    Jason Sokol at Marketing Matters wrote about three of our business titles: Gary Vayernchuk’s Crush It, Seth Godin’s Unleashing the SUPER Ideavirus and Tom Peter’s The Little Big Things. He also took note of the work we’ve done to make user experience better than ever:

    What excites me the most about Vook is that they are continually innovating. I am incredibly impressed with the amount of progress they have made with their products in such a short amount of time. This is a great company and one you should look at. The Vook is a cool idea and with the success of smart phones and the iPad, they are poised to do quite well. [read full article here.]

    In an entirely different sector, school librarian Laura Fleming reviewed Kafka’s Greatest Stories on her blog, EdTech Insight. She wrote that our videos enhanced her understanding of Kafka’s text, and noted that Vook could be a powerful tool in the classroom:

    The Vook stands to transform learning in a 21st Century classroom and link together applications in a fluid sytematic way. The possibilites for a Vook are endless in my eyes and I’m looking forward to see what the future has in store for them. [read full review here.]

    We’re confident that the future has quite a bit in store for us, and we can’t keep wait to keep showing our Vooks to the world.

    Break Out Your Idea with a Break From Vook

    Marketing gurus Seth Godin and Gary Vaynerchuk agree that the key elements of a successful enterprise are great ideas and tenacity. If you’re wiling to work 20-hour days and “bleed out your eyes,” Gary V. says anything is possible. Seth asserts that a hundred bad ideas will lead to a good one. The number one thing you need to succeed is determination.

    You also need some capital. So tomorrow, Tuesday May 25th, Vook wants to help you save some money for your vision. Unleashing the SUPERIdeavirus and Crush It will both be on sale for just $1.99, for iPad, iPhone and browser. We hope you use the money you save to help boost your business (but if you use it to buy lunch, we understand.)

    Vook is on the iPad!

    When we last left off, we were eagerly counting down the hours to the release of iPad. We weren’t alone. People lined up hours in advance. Apple stores served breakfast. The twitter stream was abuzz with anticipation.

    Finally, the doors opened. The release of the iPad this Saturday was not just a red letter moment for Silicon Valley, it marked a turning point for the publishing and film industries, and a great opportunity for those invested in the future of media. The team at Vook has been working hard for months to prepare apps for submission to Apple, and we are ecstatic that 19 of our Vooks are now for sale in the iTunes store as iPad apps.

    The iPad has provided us with a platform to make our content even more compelling, dynamic and unique. In many ways, it seems like the iPad was literally made for us. As eBookNewser wrote, “This has got huge potential on the iPad, and Vook’s already off to a strong start.” To share our excitement with you, we’re giving away two titles for free: The Shakespeare “Love, Love, Love” app and The Sherlock Holmes Experience. With bigger screens and higher video quality, our iPad applications show off the expanded functionality of the new device and make for a truly enhanced reading experience.

    We’ve gotten a wonderful response from authors, filmmakers and fans. Gary Vaynerchuck, author of Crush It told us he’s thrilled with his Vook, and so are his fans. We’ve also gotten great feedback on Seth Godin’s Unleashing the SUPERIdeavirus as readers recognize the incredible potential for Vooks on the iPad.

    And this is just the beginning! We’ll be adding more titles to our iPad app page all the time, and continuing to explore the many possibilities of this new medium.

    We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new vook: Gary Vaynerchuk’s New York Times bestselling Crush It! We’ve been working with Gary and his team for the past few months and it’s been extremely hard not to talk about how incredible this vook is. Vook is the perfect medium for Gary—instead of just reading his advice, now you can WATCH exclusive, never before seen videos that show you how to succeed doing what you love and READ the entire book with hyperlinks to all the sites, brands, Internet success stories and interesting people that Gary wants you to know about.

    You can get the mobile version of Crush It! from the iTunes app store to take Gary with you everywhere. And whether you’re reading it on the go or on your computer and following the extensive links, the vook is the best way to get the most out of Gary’s advice. Reading the vook is like having Gary standing at your shoulder, telling you exactly how to succeed. It’s a brand new experience and it’s an easy, fun way to learn how to do what you love.

    We’re proud to be working with Gary Vaynerchuk, the VaynerMedia team, and Debbie Stier and Bob Miller at HarperStudio to release this incredible new product. With complete hyperlinks, excellent video and an elegant, easy to use interface, Crush It! realizes the true scope of the Vook vision.
