TED announced the launch of Ted Books for iOS, a new app where users can purchase short, original electronic TED Books, according to paidContent. TED Books are released every two weeks and are typically under 20,000 words. The platform the books will be built upon allows for video and audio features so videos of TED conference speeches can be embedded into books.
Readers can buy books for $2.99 each or pay a subscription of $14.99 for three months that includes six books. Other features include the ability to stream the video from the books to Apple TV and a comment feature which allows readers to leave comments at the end of the books. The app is available now.
