(Here's a back door kind of way to approach it). if you go to freelancer.com and just read some of the mobile app developers descriptions of what they do, you'll get an idea of what is linked together I think. Is google developing a distribution platform? I'm really only picking up pieces here and there of information and I'm not a programmer. BTW email me if you can create an android app for my ebook, "Lucky, the Left-Pawed Puppy," email me with your fee. I have all the images and mp3s ready to go. I have the ebook on Kindle, Nook, Ipad, but I want it as an app (narrated book) for the various smart phones. Teknowledge in Inda can do that, but my bid was too low. After all the expense of the art and narration and the few pennies I get from Kindle and Nook sales, I don't have resources. I'm trying to do it myself with ibulld apps, but running into trouble. Best wishes.
