Cine-books combine advantages of books and movies

The book was better,” we say, but what if we combine the books with movies? It’s possible these days. Technology allows to create gorgeous book applications, that can play videos and music, and offer the unlimited number of interactive elements. It’s all up to imagination of app developers.
Technically cine-book is an extended ebook with photo illustrations with cinematographic quality, video inserts, voice, sound and music. It can be read as book or heard as audio-book, and also watched like a movie!
The trailer for Cine-books sounds really promising. Although it doesn’t reveal too many details, at least it directs into believing that a single cine-book will include an entire book and an entire movie based on it. I’m not sure if this is the goal (and whether could be done at all – see “copyright costs” part of the business plan), but the promise is huge. Imagine Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, combined with the movie directed by Gary Ross and starring Jenniffer Lawrence.

Cone-books are under development. They will be launched in 2013 in the iTunes AppStore, Google Play, and Amazon AppStore.
