Apple now offering telephone support for iBooks Author to publishers
Apple is now offering telephone support to publishers in a dozen major countries to support its iBooks Author program, that allows the easy creation of e-textbooks and e-books for all types. The move is designed to make iBooks Author more welcome among book publishers and large publishing enterprises that require high-level technical support for core applications and navigating a project from its initial stages through to publishing on the iBookstore.
The service will be available (in English only at present) from 7AM to 5PM Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. The new support line follows a recent update of iBooks to version 3.2 and the launch of iBooks for Mac. The iBooks Author application itself has not yet received a major update, but is currently on version 2.1.1 and is free from the Mac App Store.
Dropbox updated with all-new iOS 7 look, new features
Dropbox, the popular cloud-based file sharing "storage locker," has updated its iOS app to match the iOS 7 style, bringing a new look and a number of feature changes, such as a streamlined iPad experience, AirDrop support, improved sharing and exporting, faster photo and video playback, improved video loading and PDF viewing and the fixing of miscellaneous bugs. The new version 3.0 includes a fix for a problem where HTML was sometimes rendered as plain text, and the entire app has received a speed boost. The update, like the app, is free and available on the iOS App Store, and works with both iPads and iPhones.
