@brooks_jones: @DavidBFox Welcome to #storyappchat! Just saw you updated your app for the retina display, so you're an expert on this!

@lynleystace: @iPad_storytime I did not know that. That's great for the consumer. #storyappchat

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones Kind of. actually didn't change our artwork for the retina display, just had to tweak some code for it to work #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @DavidBFox Aha, so no higher-res art for this version. Did you get a new iPad? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:06 am

@TracyB04: @brooks_jones Hello! Can't wait for tonight's discussion. It is always so interesting, even for us non-dev types! #storyappchat

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones not yet. Waiting to get one until I really need it... will be soon, though. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:08 am

@ruBORED: @brooks_jones #storyappchat hey everybody! Excited for another chat tonight.
March 19, 2012, 1:08 am

@iPad_storytime: @lynleystace We have a lot of sorts people don't use much, but I use them. Gives you feel for the market. Range is 5 to 500MB #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:08 am

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones Our artwork is already 2048x1536 for each page. So when zoomed out, it will look great on the new iPad. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:08 am

@brooks_jones: @ruBORED Welcome to #storyappchat!


March 19, 2012, 1:08 am

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones When you zoom in, you'll lose some detail, but not too much to be a problem. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:09 am

@brooks_jones: I'm noticing lots of app updates to make 'em compatible with the new iPad--am wondering how many apps have grown in size? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:09 am

@iPad_storytime: @brooks_jones @DavidBFox I like new iPad, but would have waited if I weren't trying to write this: http://t.co/flhZ48lY #storyappchat

March 19, 2012, 1:09 am

@brooks_jones: Am hoping I won't have to deal with larger app file sizes but not be able to enjoy the higher-res on my iPad2 #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:10 am

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones I know that all apps that were built with #Coronasdk had to be updated due to some iOS changes. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:10 am

@lynleystace: @iPad_storytime Would you say there's much correlation between size and quality? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:10 am

@DavidBFox: @iPad_storytime really great overview of the different tablets, Carisa. Should help a lot of people work out their options. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:10 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace @superhareball You guys just updated your app--did it grow a lot in size? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:11 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones @superhareball I think it did grow a bit, didn't it Dan? Or was that just their estimate? #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @iPad_storytime LOVE the comparison chart on your article, Carisa! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:12 am

@superhareball: @brooks_jones not much, only a meg or 2 bigger, because of lynley's updated about page #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:13 am

@lynleystace: @DavidBFox Whoops, that's my fault. Never got round to sending Dan any test files. Will try to do it this coming week though. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:13 am

@brooks_jones: @superhareball That's not bad--did you compress the About page somehow? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:14 am

@iPad_storytime: @lynleystace I haven't noticed any correlation at all between file size & quality. Sometimes no correlation with effects even. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:14 am

@lynleystace: @superhareball So Apple's estimate of new file size was way out after all? Never asked you about that. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:14 am

@superhareball: @DavidBFox Yes, haven't had a chance to do any comparison yet, sorry!n #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:14 am

@brooks_jones: So cute when a husband and wife team work out specifics during our chat! LOL #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:14 am

@lynleystace: @iPad_storytime So I'm guessing there are a few bloated apps out there. Not large, emphasis on bloat. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:14 am

@superhareball: @brooks_jones nope, no compression... still a PNGn #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:15 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones Ha ha, well Dan's at work in Canberra. Probably eating quiche. But even in the same house, this is how it is! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:15 am

@iPad_storytime: @brooks_jones Thanks! Did you have to break out a magnifying glass? ;-) #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:15 am

@superhareball: @lynleystace Yes, it was almost double.. it estimated 150 meg, but it was only 92 or so.n #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:16 am

@brooks_jones: @iPad_storytime Nope--and I *LOVE* dense infographics! #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:16 am

@DavidBFox: When updating apps to retina, I think people should look at whether the increase in quality justifies increased app size #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:16 am

@brooks_jones: RT @DavidBFox: When updating apps 2 retina, people should look at whether the increase in quality justifies increased app size #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:17 am

@DavidBFox: It may not make any sense to update it if there's not really a lot of extra detail being revealed. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:17 am

@artsylliu: Hi guys, just popping in. Are we talking about the new iPad? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:17 am

@superhareball: @DavidBFox Agree totally #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:17 am

@lynleystace: @DavidBFox We're not updating The Artifacts for retina for that reason. We could - the graphics exist in double size. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:18 am

@DavidBFox: @lynleystace on the other hand, wondering if Apple might feature retina apps over others. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:18 am

@iPad_storytime: @lynleystace Absolutely. Some of the largest ones make sense but my hubby says others could 'tighten code' more. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:19 am

@brooks_jones: @artsylliu Welcome! Actually tonite we're discussing app/ebook file sizes and optimization #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:19 am

@lynleystace: @iPad_storytime It prob takes a coder (rather than consumer) to determine bloat over justified MB though... #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:21 am

@superhareball: I removed the alpha layer for all our background PNG's, that saved about 10 meg, and was easy to do. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:21 am

@lynleystace: @iPad_storytime ...and that's the problem for devs whose apps are 'justifiably' large. If consumer's tablet is full it's full. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:21 am

@DavidBFox: @superhareball good one #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:22 am

@brooks_jones: BTW, did anyone ever get Life on Earth (iBook) downloaded? I never did the day it came out because it was so big #storyappchat

@lynleystace: @superhareball What's that other software you just bought to help you out with files? Texture Packer, is it called? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:24 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace I just initiated the download again--let's see if it comes over before the chat is done! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:24 am

@DavidBFox: but that made the file sizes pretty huge. 4-5MB each at 2048x1536, and with 50 pages, that would have been too much. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:24 am

@memetales: Hello #storyappchat ! Recognizing a few people here @davidbfox @brook_jones Hey! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:25 am

@superhareball: @lynleystace yep, texture Packer.. I definately recommend it http://t.co/pgZ2qkTnn #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:25 am

@DavidBFox: We then tried going to JPEGs, trying different compression levels from 30% to 70%. For some pages, the difference was minor. #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @memetales Nice to see you tonight for #storyappchat! How are you doing?
March 19, 2012, 1:26 am

@superhareball: @DavidBFox Yes 2048x1536 will create large files.. perhaps too large to justify. Will definately look at JPG's now. #storyappchat

@DavidBFox: For others (like those with embedded text) the difference was really obvious. So we're using various compression levels now. #storyappchat

@superhareball: I use GIMP, which is free BTW.. under Image menu, "Remove alpha Channel".. easy! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:29 am

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones I think it depends where you live... whether they've added app filters as part of the purification process. #storyappchat

@DavidBFox: @superhareball @cullencox when I save my PNGs in Photoshop, I make sure to uncheck "Transparency" first. #storyappchat

March 19, 2012, 1:30 am

@artsylliu: @lynleystace @brooks_jones In our family, my girls hate to update their apps because they get used to them & hate changes #storyappchat

@iPad_storytime: @superhareball I know GIMP! I used it for the first time today (w/hubby's help) to clean up my infographic. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:31 am

@brooks_jones: @artsylliu That's funny--my girls usually love to update because they like to see what's new #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:31 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones That's an interesting question. #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:42 am

@iPad_storytime: @DavidBFox I think the downside is that it's easy to get lazy, thinking "I can fix that in the next update" #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:42 am

@DavidBFox: @iPad_storytime well, do developers rush out their apps before they're ready because they know they can fix them later? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:42 am

@lynleystace: @artsylliu Just skimmed that article - seems they updated terms for CS5. That's excellent news. Now... What shall I study? #storyappchat

@iPad_storytime: @DavidBFox @DeclicKids Good points re: reviews. Sites usually review earliest versions, consumer may never know about update. #storyappchat

@DeclicKids: @DavidBFox I know, but as a digital publisher and kids digital products reviewer I think 1 is acceptable, 15 is not acceptable #storyappchat

@DavidBFox: @DeclicKids where is the cut-off? How many problems before you downgrade a review? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:48 am

@lynleystace: @artsylliu But if this website is correct, who would be buying the full version? Everyone's connected to schools somehow. #storyappchat

@TracyB04: I've been searching thru iBooks (kids, free) the quality has been horrible compared to book apps. Lots of typos. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:49 am

@iPad_storytime: @DeclicKids @DavidBFox As a reviewer, I expect the occasional typo & bug, but if it's a pattern, I will point it out. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:49 am

@DeclicKids: @DavidBFox #storyappchat I'd say 1-2 minor typos is fine IF dev/publisher accepts to correct them. More than that esp. when an app

@DavidBFox: @lynleystace it does say that it has to be used on a personally owned computer. So that would mean not a corp computer? #storyappchat

March 19, 2012, 1:50 am

@lynleystace: @DavidBFox I was just mulling that over. Is my PC a personal one, I wonder. Or maybe if it were never claimed back on tax. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:50 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones To get a student email account you only need to enrol in a single course though. #storyappchat

@iPad_storytime: @DeclicKids If I catch serious typos, I won't even list a book on the free page. Refuse to review until fixed. #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace That's one of the interesting things about being in the US: aliens (even illegal) can take classes here #storyappchat

@iPad_storytime: @TracyB04 I'd say the bottom of the book app market is just as bad, but quantity of good apps drowns it out. #storyappchat

March 19, 2012, 1:54 am

@TracyB04: @DeclicKids @brooks_jones I usually contact dev first give them a chance to correct before review is published. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:55 am

@brooks_jones: @artsylliu Yep, that's what they wanted from me too. Once I shared my email, they let me through! #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @HouseofProwse Welcome to #storyappchat! Nice to see you tonite.


March 19, 2012, 1:55 am

@iPad_storytime: @DeclicKids I've never had serious typos from well-known/successful publisher, but do publish about serious bugs if big brand. #storyappchat

@TracyB04: @iPad_storytime Thank goodness, right!? #storyappchat

March 19, 2012, 1:56 am

@brooks_jones: I don't see too many typos in book apps, more often I see text that doesn't exactly match the VO. #storyappchat

@iPad_storytime: @TracyB04 :) #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:56 am

@DeclicKids: @iPad_storytime there are serious typos in translations from serious brands. Unfortunately. #storyappchat But they usually listen when told
March 19, 2012, 1:57 am

@brooks_jones: I do hate typos though--if too many in an ebook or article I usually stop reading. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:57 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones I'm seeing quite a bit of poor punctuation in book apps. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 1:58 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace Like missing commas/periods? #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 1:59 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones Yes: run-on sentences, comma splices, misplaced apostrophes, that sort of thing. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:00 am

@HouseofProwse: @lynleystace - There shouldn't be poor punctuation with all the resources out there! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:00 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace @HouseofProwse Agreed--typos and punctuation errors are easily fixed if you get good beta testers! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:01 am

@lynleystace: @HouseofProwse Perhaps the problem is that you can't run 'punctuation' through a spell checker. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:01 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace Lord knows Microsoft Word tries though! #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 2:01 am

@DavidBFox: @brooks_jones good testers who really know grammar... #storyappchat


March 19, 2012, 2:01 am

@cullencox: @lynleystace @brooks_jones That seems really surprising. Doesn't everything have spell check these days? #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:02 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones @HouseofProwse But you need a beta-tester who's a punctuation pedant in particular! #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: Wow, this chat flew by! I was glad to see so many new faces alongside the 'regulars' tonite! #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:02 am

@iPad_storytime: @DeclicKids Oh, you mean translation errors ... that I see often. Can be rather glaring problem. Way beyond typos, though. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:02 am

@lynleystace: @cullencox Spell check is simply not very good at picking up poor punctuation. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:02 am

@brooks_jones: @cullencox Even TweetDeck helped me spell a word right a few minutes ago! #storyappchat

@lynleystace: I'm thinking mainly of classic-story apps in English which have been produced by non-native speakers of English, tbh. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:04 am

@superhareball: I think a lot of iBooks are coming from people where english is not their first language. #storyappchat

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones It tries, oh how it tries! (I turn the damn thing off.) #storyappchat

@superhareball: Thanks for the chat everyone, back to work now... #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:05 am

@DeclicKids: @lynleystace #storyappchat I think you need good correctors, as paper books publishers usually do
March 19, 2012, 2:05 am

@brooks_jones: Thanks to all of you who participated tonite! Any ideas for a topic for next week? Translations, perhaps? #storyappchat

@lynleystace: @DeclicKids Copy editors cost money, and some people don't realise how bad they are at copy editing, I think. #storyappchat

@DeclicKids: @lynleystace #storyappchat yes but illustrators and devs cost money too.
March 19, 2012, 2:07 am

@lynleystace: @DeclicKids Of course it is. I speak Japanese. But I wouldn't even think of translating our app into Japa w/o native help. #storyappchat

@DeclicKids: yes !! RT @brooks_jones: Or perhaps copy editing would be a good topic for next week? #storyappchat

@DeclicKids: @lynleystace not only native help. It isn't enough. You need professional skills to make it right. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:08 am

@lynleystace: @DeclicKids Ours don't. We do that ourselves. I'm not a bad-punctuation apologist though. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:08 am

@lynleystace: @DeclicKids Here I disagree. Some people are good at copy-editing. Depends on your background. #storyappchat
March 19, 2012, 2:08 am

@iPad_storytime: @brooks_jones Great idea for next week's topic! Definitely lots of issues with copy-editing ... #storyappchat

@ruBORED: @DeclicKids @brooks_jones #storyappchat I would like that for talking about copy editing
March 19, 2012, 2:10 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace @DeclicKids I'm a good copy editor--but hired an editor 4 my next book anyhow. He caught lots of stuff I missed! #storyappchat
