Want a more laid-back approach to learning the in's and out's of this kit? Grab some popcorn and watch the documentation videos. They cover a lot of the same material as the written guides (but don't describe every possible Property List value).
The true-of-heart story teller will crack open the written reference for the ultimate guide. This documentation is available for the iPad in the native iBook format or as a PDF file. Both are lushly illustrated and detail every possible value for the Property List.
Check out Build a Vehicle, our free example in the App Store. This is for the iPad and contains NO custom coding, everything was setup via the Property List. Update: You can also check out these buyer-customized examples, Mat Tales, which uses some of the newer features of the kit, as well as Interactive ABCs, Andrew Puffin, and Farmyard Animal Puzzles.
Professional instructor, app developer and owner of CartoonSmart.com, Justin Dike created this kit to build immersive story book apps for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch devices with zero programming.
That's the beauty of this kit. You don't have to do ANY programming! Everything is setup using a simple Property List file. And by "everything", we do mean everything: interaction, animation, sounds, video, in-app purchases, etc. One file does it all.
We should be asking YOU that. What do you want to do? What kind of story do YOU have in mind? If you can dream it up, you can probably tell it with this kit.
Your purchase includes both text and video documentation, but to whet your appetite for this kit, we're giving away every bit of it for free. Below you can find links to download the Multi-Touch eBook version of the guide (for your iPad) or a PDF version of the guide (for your Mac, PC, iPhone or other devices).
The iBook version can be downloaded directly to your iPad or iPad mini.
