Whitby demonstrated 'The Solar System' and 'The Wasteland' by Eliot, which is due to launch in April. The apps all have one thing in common - they bring a dry subject to a new digital audience. Already existing information and material is taken and manipulated in order to create a new product. These ebooks are not a simple copy of what you can buy in Heffers but provide the audience with something extra, which can only be experienced in the digital form.
