Quark’s App Studio was the first user-friendly tool to convert publications into complex, interactive iOS apps. With the recent ratification of the EPUB 3 standard, Quark has now migrated their HTML5-based App Studio tools into all the QuarkXPress 2015 layout spaces (Print, eBook and App Studio). This means that you can now use the familiar App Studio interface to build interactivity into ePub files—including Audio, Video, Slideshows, Animations, 360-degree images and Buttons.
