This Is Not a Book: Thomas Jefferson & Apple’s App Store

This Is Not a Book: Thomas Jefferson & Apple’s App Store – ProfHacker – The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Ebook vs. app is an interesting conundrum, and the ease of use of Apple’s tools for creation makes a lot of academic projects default to using them. This is a self-limiting flaw, which sometimes creates bizarre situations like this: An app presenting Eliot’s Waste-Land in annotation layers is OK; an app presenting a work by Thomas Jefferson in annotation layers is not.

The web works on everything.
