Today, betaworks launches tapestry: a collection of tappable stories for your iPhone or iPad.
With tapestry, we’ve created a way to write and publish essays designed for the iPhone or iPad — tappable stories. These are short-form stories that you tap through to read. After downloading the app, you’ll gain access to the library of short stories designed specifically for tapestry from New York Times best-selling author Robin Sloan and many others, with new stories released regularly.
The tapestry site allows anyone to create and share their own tappable stories. If you go to tapestry.is you can create an account and write a story. Once your story is ready to be published, you get a URL which you can send or tweet to others that will insert your essay right into their version of the tapestry app. Periodically, we’ll look for interesting tapestry stories to feature in the app.
Download the app and tap a story today.
