Think it through
Initially created as a compact 'picture book player' that can hold many books to use with my daughters. It has emerged as a tool used at schools, and for people of all ages to enjoy creating and viewing personal digital storybooks.

Create concepts & prototypes
The free Android app get's lots of use and positive feedback. Unsuspected use case is for parents with autistic children and teaching in general. Sharing proves to be difficult.

Partner up
The best fit seems to be a publisher of children books. It can offer a marketing chanel and investments in creating premium and online features. In return a percentage of ownership and/or is within the cards. Advertisement inside the app beyond 'this app is powered by PartnerNameX' is not possible. Let me know if you're interested.

Make it self sustainable
The app doesn't make any money, but I've had online conversations with users about specifics on what they would pay for. I think a marketplace inside the app and paid premium features could allow for a healthy business model so it can keep improving.

Make a real impact
It's the app that I've had the most heartwarming feedback from. I'm very proud it is used in some classrooms with children aged around 5. As of nov 2019, it has 50.000+ installs and over 8.000 active users.
