Turns pictures on your mobile into eBook stories.
InstEbook lets you add a narrative, details, and context to your pictures so that a set of images becomes a full story rather than just a bunch of pictures in a folder.
You publish real eBooks that go right on your eReader, just like the classics. Only these eBooks are yours, with your pictures and your stories. A table of contents, indices, maps, narratives, details about people, everything. All yours, all published instantly.
To tell a story as easily as possible. Your life is more than a slideshow, more than a picture dropped in a folder, more than an image run through a tinted filter, more than a short post.
Once, before mobile time, you might have assembled your pictures into a photobook or even a nice scrapbook, complete with dates, captions, maybe a little narrative scrawled in the margin.
InstEbooks is a massive upgrade from this past into the future with eBooks. Everything you would have done manually is done automatically, plus lots of things you wouldn't have done. Like maps. Or speech to text. Forget typing or handwriting, just tell your story by talking into your mobile.
If you've even thought about making a slideshow or photobook from your pictures, you should make an eBook.
Lots of things! But these are the best: eBooks, mobile, context, sharing, and updates.
eBooks: Better than printed in so many ways. More details, more info, more options-- maps, table of contents, hyperlinks. It's like music jumping from vinyl records past cassettes, past CDs, past iPods, and right to smartphone cloud music.
Mobile: Because it's where you are. It's where your pictures are taken. It's with you when the stories happen.
Context: It's easy to share when everyone knows who's in the pictures. InstEbooks explain themselves to readers you don't know-- or to yourself in twenty years when you've forgotten.
This is what we mean by context: indexes, maps, a who's who, a lexicon, hyperlinked. It's everything you would need to ask. It's everything you can't do with a folder of pictures.
Sharing: Email your InstEbooks to anyone and they can read it on any device, anywhere, anytime. No DRM. A little easier than sending a hardbound book.
Because it's where you are. Because that's where your pictures are and where the stories happen.
Your mobile camera captures an instant. InstEbooks is there to turn those pictures into stories with meaning. It's just as easy and just as fast and just as mobile.
And fast. Press a photo and it flies into your eBook. Tap the photo to flip it over and write your tags and the story that go with the picture.
Actually you don't even need to type. Just speak and InstEbooks converts your spoken stories into text.
Want maps in your eBook? Just point to where you are in your pictures and we add maps and an atlas to your eBook. Automatically.
It's personal. Every InstEbook is unique with its own cover built from your pictures. You'll probably never get the exact same cover twice no matter how many updates you do.
And it's easy. We make it personal without the time and work.
No. Well, yes and no.
The yes part: InstEbook is so easy and entertaining that most people won't bother making printed photobooks anymore.
The no part: there's something special about a big printed photobook lying half-forgotten on your coffee table.
