    I developed an interactive picture book and put it on Mac App Store based on the classic story "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". Right now it is a FREE download because I am not sure I want to charge for it right out of the gate. I am leaning toward charging it in the future at the same price as the iPhone version ($1.99). But I am curious to know what your thoughts/experience are on paying for this type of enhanced ebooks on the Mac App Store.

    The app link is: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/goldilocks/id413025495?mt=12

    If I had kids, I'd probably pay for this kind of app. I think you shouldn't charge more than $2.

    I believe that anyone who puts any work into something has the right to charge something for their work. Keep the price at level that people will be wiling to spend. Books for children are a wonderful idea, and if the price is reasonable parents will purchase them. Good luck.:)

    Yes, the price point is about right around what I was thinking.

    @lee14160 - thanks for the encouragement.
