Developing Apps

A couple of you have mentioned interest in developing apps of your own.  This blog post shows an example of a book turned into an interactive non-linear app instead of an ebook.  Although I do have my own interest in it (it is, after all, about librarians), I am really intrigued with the navigation of the app he created.  I haven’t seen many apps yet that use the brainstorming / mindmapping style as a navigation map to content.  Take a look at the 5-minute video for examples.
