Tamil Alphabets – My first iBook

I have created my first iBook named Tamil Alphabets. This book is about Uyir Ezhuthukal and Ayutha Ezhuthu of Tamil.

iBooks got me fascinated by its multimedia integration in to books. So I decided to create an interactive book about Tamil Alphabets. I have spent almost a month to complete this book and finally published it today. It just took 4 1/2 hours for Apple to review my book and now it is available on iTunes.

Features:

  • Video is integrated in all pages that teaches you how to write the letter.
  • A writing pad is available to practice what you have learnt.

Here is how my book looks…

Left to right. 1. Page with images and widgets. 2. Writing pad. 3. Video. 4. Another sample page.

Book Walkthrough: The video won’t be much clear as it was taken on my phone camera.

The book is available here for free. I hope somewhere someone will download this book 🙂

This book is dedicated to all who love their native language.
PS: I thank Indira maa and Vandhana for helping me with their beautiful sketches and pictures.

Windows 8 Release preview : Balu’s vLog

Microsoft has launched Windows 8 release preview last week. It’s much more matured than the developer and consumer preview. The Metro UI is awesome and I’m sure it’s going to be a great OS for tablets. Unlike static icons in existing tablets like iPad and Android (No offense :)), Live tiles seem to be unique and fantastic.

I’m not sure how Microsoft will manage to bring the same OS for both tablets and PCs. Let’s wait and watch.

Here is my review on Windows 8. It’s my first video log and my voice is really funny :).

Warning: Watch it at your own risk.

 

I know what you people think now. I thought the same :D. Negative comments appreciated!
