William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Gets Unique App

Publisher Quirk Books worked with the digital storytelling app Tapestry to create an interactive version of the publisher’s William Shakespeare’s Star Wars book.

AppNewser has the scoop:

This is the first time that the user generated storytelling app has partnered with a publisher. As part of the partnership, Quirk Books is contributing 5 stories to Tapestry’s 2.0 relaunch including a William Shakespeare Star Wars mashup written by Ian Doescher. Reading on the Tapestry app is not like reading on your run-of-the-mill eReader apps. The app lets users both create and read stories. Readers are encouraged to take the time to take it all in, as it is designed for readers to move the story forward but as the website explains, ”There’s no going back, so take your time—that’s the whole point.”
