Abstract

The objective of this study is to investigate the interactive relationship between picture e-book design and children with the interface of APP web for mobile devices. In order to achieve the objective, the focus of this study is in applying APP technology to picture e-book. Also, APP web interfaces based on both smartphone and tablet via picture book are designed in the study. Furthermore, this study discusses children interface satisfaction in reading the e-book. It shows that both the interactive process and the result differ in smartphone and in tablet. It seems to be the best way for children to read the picture e-book if they can easily touch the buttons on the screen of a tablet.
