Hello Book App Alliance members, we are happy to announce a new app update for our organization within the Blackfish Children’s Books and Story Creator app:

The Blackfish app will now include a listing for all BAA books in its store section!

Parents and kids will be able to download the app at no charge and see all of the BAA books in one place, linked to the app store to purchase it. It includes a convenient searchable index of the apps, where users can search for keywords and filter based on features. If someone wants to find all of the BAA Halloween books; no problem. What about all of the free books that include monsters? -No problem!

The Blackfish app will be a useful reference for finding quality independent books, and the goal of the inclusion in the app will be to create more awareness for all BAA apps.

Try the latest version of Blackfish, currently available on iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac and PC.

BAA-logo-finalMEMBERS: To be sure that the listings for your book(s) are correct, please have a look at the excel spreadsheet at this link.

Let us know if there are any changes needed in your app’s description or if there are books that need to be added, within the next 7 days.

The column headers should be self explanatory, but let us know if you need help understanding the spreadsheet. If any changes are needed, please let us know the names of the app, and a list of all the fields that need to be changed along with the appropriate changes.

Additionally, if you have an image you would like to use to represent your book, please provide an image that is 341×256 (i.e. 1/3 standard iPad screen shot size). Otherwise we’ll use an image from iTunes.

Also, if you have a custom URL for your app (i.e. a URL that you can enter into a browser to start your app), let us know and your app will be shown in a user’s library of apps within Blackfish when it is purchased as well, which is a nice feature. If you don’t have a custom URL now, talk to your developer to add it. It is usually trivial to add it in on your next app update, and is generally a nice feature to have available for your app.

Of course, let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.


The BAA Team
