New App Launches to Change Mobile Reading Experience

New App Launches to Change Mobile Reading Experience

For centuries, authors and readers have been separated. One wrote in private, while the other, often months or years later, read in private. Now, a new app has launched that harnesses the power of social media, giving authors and readers new functionality to engage with the content, other readers and the author. The Snippet app for iOS devices pays homage to another aspect of social media by adding a length constraint similar to Twitter.

The new platform allows authors to publish as many 1,000 word or less chapters to their Snippet, and utilize iOS multimedia tools for adding audio, video, photo slideshows and more. This shorter format makes Snippets both quick to read and quick to publish. The entire reading and publishing experience becomes social and connects the writer to the reader like never before, all within the mobile device.
