Our office was buzzing with activity yesterday as the news of our announcement went public. Clearly, kid-friendly and family-friendly apps are becoming more sought after. Here at Ruckus HQ, we're all very excited about the birth of our brand, and about the early reactions. Everyone in the office is gearing up for our first release date on September 28th, which includes five classic tales that we all know and love.
Here's what some of the media had to say about us:
The Wall Street Journal wrote that “The launch illustrates how quickly the digital publishing landscape is changing."
Publisher's Weekly wrote that "Not only are Ruckus Media titles priced aggressively at $3.99 per title, but the apps are designed to be interactive and will offer periodic upgrades of additional digital content at no extra cost."
Media Bistro's eBooknewser said that "With the popularity surrounding some kids book apps like Oceanhouse Media's Dr. Seuss apps, it seems that kid’s books are taking off in the app world these days. Today a new company called Ruckus Media Group, which calls itself "a global family entertainment company," announced its entry into the market."
We were also featured in Shelf Awareness and our press release hit the airwaves across the globe.
So many of you sent us messages to congratulate us on Facebook and Twitter which made the launch all the more sweeter for us. Thank you for that!
