    Playcreate Media Ltd (www.playcreate.com), will officially launch its new app packaging and development service to the publishing industry at this year’s Bologna Book Fair.

    Designed to help publishers take their storybook content into the digital world, Playcreate is offering app development in a straightforward and affordable way. A choice of 3 different types of apps; Interactive, Story-telling and Play & Learn, start from as little as $1,500. With co-edition or bespoke production options, this simple modular structure opens up the digital world to smaller publishers or even self-publishing.

    David Henderson, Managing Director of Top That Publishing plc (parent company of Playcreate Media) said, ‘In our experience of launching apps, we quickly realised that the app creation process was as much about the traditional publishing skills of story-telling and creativity as much as it was about writing code! We are thrilled to use our digital expertise to help others within the industry and can’t wait to start working with children’s publishers and authors’.

    Simon Dickins, Business Development Manager of Playcreate Media said, ‘We strongly believe in apps as a means, for example, for publishers to market their content and characters between publication dates. But in order to do this, app creation needs to be easy and cost-effective. Our modular approach demonstrates that app creation doesn’t have to cost the Earth, and in doing so, opens up the digital world to even the smallest of companies’.

    Playcreate Media is the digital business of the award-winning independent children’s publisher, Top That Publishing Ltd. Playcreate Media will be on the Top That stand at Bologna, Hall 25 Stand A101 to showcase the new app packaging service.
