Amazon and B&N are not the only companies working to improve their e-book platforms. There are plenty of exciting start-ups that want to contribute to this space and come up with innovative solutions for the e-book industry. Mike Matas and Kimon Tsinteris are two former Apple engineers who left to create a new e-book publishing platform. Their platform allows for more sophisticated e-books with videos, audio, geo-located photos and interactive graphics.
These e-books take advantage of Cocoa Touch to bring a more interactive experience to e-book buyers. You don’t have to look past the above video to realize how powerful this e-book platform is. This is yet another powerful tool for independent authors to set their work apart from others.
I still believe we have not seen the future of e-books yet. But platforms such as the one developed by Push Pop Press should act as a teaser for what is to come in the next few years. These are exciting times for those who still read.
