iPhone Application Sketch Book iPhone Development Software Business

The following press release was posted this afternoon. In short I have sold the rights to publish the iPhone Application Sketch Book to Apress. I’m excited about the opportunity to get a wider distribution for the notebook. Especially with a first class organization like Apress.

I’d like to thank Demitri Pagonis of the graphic design firm Malish & Pagonis. Without his talents the graphics on this project would not have stood out like they did. If you need outstanding graphical and Web design he is your man. Also to Jeff Stonefield and Jeff Pepper from Apress for making the acquisition possible. I’m honored that they are publishing the Sketch Book and I look forward to many great things in the future. And to John Davis, my long time friend and co-worker. He stands by me through thick and thin. I can’t say enough what that means to me.

The iPhone Application Sketch Book is a bound notebook with 100 pages of to-scale iPhone design templates that provide iPhone app developers an organized place for sketches, preliminary wireframes, user interface designs, and notes.
“I was excited to be approached by Apress, a first-class publisher,” says Dean Kaplan, creator and founder of Kapsoft. “The iPhone Application Sketch Book will make a great companion to Apress’s extensive line of iPhone development books.”

Apress will have the iPhone Application Sketch Book available for sale through all retail channels in November 2009.
