When Porto Editora, the Portuguese children’s & school books leader for over 40 years, challenged Appgeneration to develop an interactive children’s books collection for iPad and iPhone, they wanted a guarantee that they would get a winner solution. And that was exactly what AppGeneration was able to deliver. Not only top quality interactive and read-alone engaging books that marveled consumers and media experts but also a full what-you-see-is-what-you-get framework solution for designers to compose books.  Designers can now do this (from text-voice synchronization and objects with life-like properties such as “gravity” or “stickiness”, to painting and puzzle activities) without any coding. Working together, AppGeneration and Porto Editora were able to develop a meaningful interface that can now easily be used by any leader company in the sector to concentrate in what they do best: engage parents and children in memorable experiences that will stick with them throughout their lives. AppGeneration is now packing the software to global distribution guaranteeing Porto Editora exclusivity to Portuguese and Brazilian territories. In the Bologna Children’s Book Fair we are presenting the children’s book authoring tools that enable publishers to develop their own interactive books in a much faster and cheaper way for the iPad platform.
