ABC, the New York-based television network owned by The Walt Disney Company, has released a new iPad app bringing “video books” to the iPad. ABC Video Bookstore debuted in the App Store earlier this week and provides in-depth coverage of selected news stories and events presented in both video and text.
At launch, ABC Video Bookstore offers two video books, the first covering the relationship between Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton and the second focusing on Amanda Knox, an American college student convicted of murder in Italy. Each video book costs $7.99 via in-app purchase.
The app’s description states that more video books will be added on a regular basis.
ABC Video Bookstore joins several other ABC network apps in the App Store, including one of our favorites, ABC Player, that offers on-demand streaming video of the network’s most popular shows.
