It’s App-Tastic: The Irish Story’s First Five Apps

Corny headlines aside, today is a pretty great day for The Irish Story.

Over the last few weeks we’ve been working with our excellent business partners, Collca, to co-publish five apps.

It has been a great experience, which I mostly put down to the talent and commitment of our wonderful co-publisher, Mike Hyman at Collca. I first came across Collca in late October when I found the wonderful History in An Hour Series, which I discovered Collca co-published.

That find sparked an e-mail, a phone call and a contract agreement within a fortnight and now a five app publishing schedule in the space of six weeks. Things can truly move rapidly in the digital publishing space can’t they?

Three of those Apps are now live and by Christmas the other two will follow. If all goes to plan, we will be rolling out more Apps and more ebooks in 2011. So go on, buy yourself a little Christmas treat, at only

€2.39 each they are priced pretty keenly!
