DK to release five apps

Dorling Kindersley is to release five more apps developed with digital media company Cogapp via the iTunes store by the end of 2011, with DK publishing director Justin Moodie calling apps a "rapidly growing publishing channel at DK".

The apps will be based on some of DK's "best-selling core titles", with the first, Quick Cook on iPad, to be released later this summer. The app will feature more than 600 recipes, which will be searchable through a range of filters, such as store cupboard ingredients.

Cogapp worked with DK to develop the Eyewitness Paris, London and New York apps.

Publishing director Justin Moodie said: "Apps are a rapidly growing publishing channel at DK, providing our customers with a new, accessible route to access some of the most inspiring content and beauty from DK via their iPad or iPhone."

Cogapp m.d. Alex Morrison added: "It is fantastic that we are able to continue to build upon our collaborative relationship with DK and means there are some exciting times ahead."
