This is the first time I've seen a thread like this. It's a great idea
for all of us to see what others are doing.
I'm refining a suite of tools I've been working on with a partner for
several years. The tools allow users to import PDF's of children's
books (think "Green Eggs and Ham"), trace areas of the images and create
hot spots which play audio files, animations, highlighters for text as
it's read, go to other pages or URL's, draw on screen, facilitate
drag/drop of images, etc. After adding all this interaction there's an
export button which converts the book to HTML5 and uploads it to one of
our servers for children to view it in any browser. The latest addition
is Android and iOS apps for those users who prefer apps instead of
browsers on tablets.
