[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - 3 months ago, iPhone app developer Rod Cambridge released an eBook entitled "How NOT To Write an App". The eBook is available on Amazon, Apple's iBookstore, Barnes & Noble and others, and takes the reader step by step through the things that should, and shouldn't, be done when creating an app for Apple's iPhone, Google's Android, and other popular smartphone platforms.
Shortly after going on sale, Rod started to receive email requesting a physical version of the book be made available. "It was pretty clear to me after just a few weeks that there was demand for a paperback version of the eBook" said Rod "and so I've now made one available!".
The paperback allows developers (both seasoned, and those just starting out) who prefer traditional books to enjoy the lighthearted but informative content that Kindle, iPad and other eBook users have been enjoying for the last 3 months. "I love reading on both my iPad and Kindle" Rod said "but sometimes you can't beat reading a traditional book - and so I knew it was important to make my eBook available for those users who read in the traditional way as well".
Rod teamed up with Createspace, an Amazon company, to create the paperback version of the eBook. The paperback version is available from Amazon, Createspace, and other online stores for $8.99 (USD). The eBook version is still available for $4.99.
Rod Cambridge is a seasoned iEntrepreneur who, back in 2006, launched his groundbreaking Expodition website which provided location-based guides for users of Apple's original iPod. These text-based guides were viewed using the iPod's 'Notes' feature and provided the user with details of specific locations, tailored to that user's profile. More recently, Rod has turned his hand to developing iPhone apps, and currently has apps in the store and in development. Rod lives in Harrow, on the outskirts of London and has an interest in cars, computers and Yang style tai-chi. Copyright (C) 2011 Rod Cambridge. All Rights Reserved.
