The award-winning Wormworld Saga app is currently being featured by Google as part of the Staff Picks for Android tablets. The free app includes all published chapters of The Wormworld Saga graphic novel and is optimized for reading on tablet devices, including the new Google Nexus 7.

The Wormworld Saga is also available for free for iPad devices. Earlier this year, the app won the Publishing Innovation Award at Digital Book World New York.

Touch painting is a very requested feature in our children’s bookapps and is also a part of Storybuilder, our children’s book authoring tool. Instead of repeating code over and over again we decided to create a library just for it: RMPaint. And we made it open source while we were at it.
RMPaint is an iOS painting library based in the GLPaint example by Apple. Its main features to date are:
Paint with touch gestures
Dynamic brush and color
Save and restore painting sessions
Designed for iOS 5 with ARC
As usual, we invite developers to fork RMPaint and contribute or request improvements. We will be adding more features shortly.
