What is the process for getting a custom eReader app suite?
First, we want to get to know you, your organization, and your goals for your eReader. Once details and expectations have been ironed out, we will present you with a project proposal including a time estimate. If you have special development needs beyond what is included in our basic pricing
, we will also include a quote in the project proposal. When that has been agreed upon, we will start working on your apps. Turn around for completed eReader apps published to the app stores is typically 3-4 weeks.
Whenever we make performance improvements and add features for any client, all clients receive the benefits. In addition, this does not even require resubmission of your app to the app store. When users open your apps after an update has been published, the new code is downloaded in the background. The next time they come back, wala, things are better. (Of course, clients may opt-out of these free updates. But why?)
What is the difference between the Toad Reader platform, and the Toad Reader apps?
The Toad Reader platform is a white label, customizable eReader platform. Clients pay for our services and can then provide beautiful eReader apps with their eBooks to their users.
The Toad Reader apps (iOS
) are free eReader apps with great Christian eBooks for anyone to use. They exist to provide free reading of wonderful books, and as a demonstration of the Toad Reader platform.
You can certainly sell your books via Kindle, however Kindle is not yours. Having your own eReader allows you as an organization, institution or business to have professional presentation and control over content and details. Use this to facilitate a subscription service, provide book sets which accompany online learning, or simply keep users in your ecosystem of literature.
And then there is the cost. While getting your own white label eReader does involve an upfront cost, our 1.5% charge on book sales and subscription fees (details
) blows Kindle’s 30-65% charges
out of the water.
