Publishing for iPhone Attention Spans

tqf3up.jpgThe mobile-web savvy folks at Featherproof Books just released a TripleQuick Fiction iPhone app, giving writers a platform to publish 333-word stories–tales that can be told in three simple iPhone screens.

The creators estimate that these flashy stories can be read in under three minutes, and the simple design seems fairly addictive. The app will launch with stories by Matt Bell, Michael Kimball, and Shane Jones (his story page is pictured here).

Check it out: “Another exciting feature of TripleQuick is the ability to compose and submit your own stories, right on the iPhone. Those with the writerly inclination can just type in three screens of their best work, type in a bio, even take an author photo using the iPhone’s camera, and submit the story to the featherproof editors. When inspiration strikes, don’t go hunting for a paper and pen, just send it to us, on the double. Or rather, on the triple.”
