关于“航海书刊”APP的测评

如果你可以免费得到一本书就不要通过这个APP来买

Android,iPhone,应用程序,iTunes,touch,iPhone 关于“航海书刊”APP的测评 NauticalBooksApp.jpg


海员们都喜欢读一些航海书籍,所以当注意到这个免费APP名字时,肯定会产生一时的兴奋。我们继续往下读来弄清楚这个APP本质上是如何从免费中赚钱的。
版本评估:1.0免费适用于iPhone,iPod touch和iPad没有Android版本


它究竟是什么

这款“免费”APP基本上仅仅是想要给你卖书。它只不过是一份简单的将书名按字母次序排列的书单(作者和其他数据都不显示除非你进一步要求每一个详细介绍)你可以每本花2.99美元下载。

它甚至都不能提供搜索

但是这儿存在一个问题:显然所有的书已经存在于公共领域并且在epub和其他数字版本中免费提供(接下来往下看如何获取)这还要包括一些应用程序购买(在每个iTunes页面)像Richard Henry Dana的Two Years Before the Mast《航海两年》和其他成百上千的书,如JulesVerne的 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea《海底20000里》。


缺陷
我从“航海书籍”里检索出来的每一本书都已经在网上免费存在于古登堡计划中。简单的进入他们的网站搜索目录或者搜索“海”会发现列出500本关于航海书籍(几乎包括所有,即使不是全部,APP中也有)。你还可以浏览海洋书籍的主题(例如(航海生活-小说或者“航海歌曲”或其他主题。当你发现感兴趣的东西,点击它看到许多可用的格式,通常包括音频版本。然后下载它直接在您的设备或您的计算机和传输它。)

我发现有证据表明,“航海书籍”应用程序开发人员可能已经简单地下载了免费的项目古腾堡数字版本(下一步创造性的许可协议),并正在销售同样的事情。

我发现这很卑劣

BNT一个应用程序开发人员,描述了应用程序的方式表明他们只是编程该应用程序进行重新分配网络内容并毫无戒心的公开,而不是说,有任何真正的关于他们自己的感觉或对航海文学的欣赏:“读者将会从中获得更多的知识,关于人类造成的石油泄漏而使我们的海洋母亲以及海洋生物需要保护。”特别是,这些航海书籍还提供了许多关于客船,货船,班轮以及帆船的知识和实验。


结论

BTN表明他们有整个一系列不同的书“集合”通过不同的主题进行推销自己。显然人们在应用程序内购买,也许是为了方便。花2.99美元在这儿买书并不悲哀,但如果你稍微花几分钟在网上搜索会得到一打或者更多相同的书籍,这样也能省钱!

因为这些都是一些老的,公共领域的标题,所以你不会真的看到许多当代书籍或关于航海的信息。为此,可以去看一看 Boater's Pocket Reference app或是History ofSailing app。

Review of "Nautical Books" App

Don't Buy Books with This App When You Can GetThem Free!

Sailorslike to read nautical books, so when a free app of this name is noticed,there's a moment of excitement. Read on to see why this app essentially wantsto take your money for what you can get free.
Versionreviewed: 1.0 for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad - free
No Android version

What It Does
This"free" app basically just wants to sell you books. It is nothing morethan a simple alphabetic listing of book titles (authors and other data notidentifiable until you ask for a sample of each) that you can download for$2.99 each.
It's noteven searchable.
But there's an issue here: apparently all the books are alreadyin the public domain and available free in epub and other digital versions (seebelow for how to get). This includes the "top in-app purchase" (periTunes page) of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast and hundreds more, like Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The Downside
Every one of the books I checked in the "NauticalBooks" listing was available online already from Project Gutenberg - forfree. Simply go to their website and search the catalog, or search there for "sea" tofind lists of almost 500 nautical books (including almost all, if not all, inthe app). You can also browse the sea books by subject (such as "seafaringlife - fiction," or "sea songs," or other subjects. When youfind something of interest, click it to see many available formats, oftenincluding audio versions. Then download it directly on your device or to yourcomputer and transfer it.
I foundevidence that the "Nautical Books" app developer may have simplydownloaded the free Project Gutenberg digital versions (under a CreativeCommons license) and is selling the exact same thing.
I myselffind this rather sleazy.
BTN, theapp developer, describes the app in a way that suggests they simply programmedthe app to redistribute online content to an unsuspecting public, rather than,say, having any real feel for or appreciation of nautical literature: "Thereaders will get more knowledge about Mother Sea and wild sea animals whichneed be protected from oil spills human has caused. Especially, these nauticalbooks also supply much knowledge and experiments about cruising, chartering,sailing, sailboats."

Conclusions
BTN apparently has a whole series of different book "collections" ondifferent topics they sell themselves. And apparently people do buy them asin-app purchases - maybe for the convenience. Doing it once for $2.99 isn't atragedy, but you could spend a few minutes online to get a dozen or more of thesame, and the savings will add up quick!
Since these are older, public-domain titles, you won'treally see many contemporary books or information about sailing. For this, takea look instead at the Boater's PocketReference appor the History of Sailingapp
