Appmakr (www.appmakr.com), for example, has been used by writers including business thought leader Seth Godin. You need to create a title image and an icon. You can then add in special links (known as RSS feeds) to your blog, Twitter feed or Youtube. Using these links, the app will pull your online content into the app, so your app is dynamically updated whenever your web presence is. On screen, you can play with a simulator to see what your final app will look like. The app stores the content in the device, so even if there is no web connection, readers can still see previously downloaded stories. The service costs $300, but friendly support is available to help guide you through the process.
Intelligenti is now looking to partner with "people producing the kind of whimsical impulse-purchase content you'd typically see beside the till in a bookstore. Our technology allows colourful, illustrated content to be sold, and we also let readers email single pages to their friends which can help drive sales virally. Try to write something that people will want to share." 2b1af7f3a8
