    Lovely app , and should deliver great looking content readable in one shot across multiple devices, would have been nice to see the experience on a Windows Phone however, to see what the difference was to iOS . Question is there any "premium" to the experience on a Windows Phone vs iOS / Android ?

    Where is a workflow, review or approval flow? I can see lots of content published without proofing and review and then open to public access.

    I am confused here. You have not really defined what this is. You appear to be saying something about presentations and creative ways of presenting your information. However, I am not hearing a simple definition. I cannot follow your presentation. It seems to me that you are assuming that your readers are interested in technology-driven information rather than integrating real basic communication and cooperative learning. The word that comes to my mind is human-centered and learning collaboratives with real persons beginning with a logical educational process that originates in human behaviors and learning styles. I am interested in hearing how that will impact my teaching and learning in a very personal and "contactual" way. Just can't put my finger on it. Can we have a conversation?
    Thanks so much for your enthusiasm and obvious interest here.

    Love it! Love it! Love it! Love it! Love it! I am a nurse educator for a college and I can't wait to get my ideas and presentations into this format. Maybe my students will understand the content of their classes easier in this exciting new format. I tried it out. Having a hard time changing the fonts of the texts. For example the title: I am typing "Communication" and sway is hyphenating it. Not kewl… Is there a way to fix it. I tried scrolling over it like in the video but when I did that no option came up for me to reduce the size of the font. Any advise?

    ...anyway...Love it! Love it! Love it!
