Q: Are the books that you can download to your iPod Touch audible like the Reading A to Z website?
A: Not at this time. The books you're referring to are part of Learning A-Z's "RAZ Kids" line. We are in negotiations with Learning A-Z to make that content available on the iPod touch. We're also looking at making support materials available for teachers in the Library applications.
What is in this first release are a selection of their most popular print titles by level. The next phase is to have in-line supplementary materials, which will take the form of vocabulary pop-ups. These are being submitted to Apple for approval as we speak: All of the apps currently available should be upgraded to include this by the end of the month.
After that, we'll be putting the K-Z titles up, so we'll have 10 titles for sale at each level, both individually and part of a library collection, and 1 free sample title for each level.
Which brings me to my last point: There is a free sample application for each level currently available on the iTunes store -- levels aa-J. Feel free to download them and take a look. As we add more functionality, you will get an update notification, so you can see how the applications are developing.
I hope that helps.
