(PR NewsChannel) / March 13, 2013 / CHICAGO 

Medallion PressMedallion Media Group, Inc., parent company of book publisher Medallion Press, today announced its MMG Sidekick app for iPad is now available free in the App Store. The e-book reader app lets users purchase selections from the entire digital library of Medallion Press titles and includes a rotating selection of free e-books every month.

MMG Sidekick also comes embedded with TREEbook™ technology, which enhances the e-book-reading experience by activating time triggers and multiple story branches already built into TREEbook™ versions of particular books.

“The MMG Sidekick app for iPad represents version one of what will become the reader app of the future. We’ve started simple, by including the full digital library of Medallion Press titles and the ability to import DRM-free e-books, along with the embedded TREEbook™ technology, which allows consumers to access TREEbook™ functionality in e-books designed for the format,” said Heather Musick, Senior vice president of Medallion Media Group. “And because we also invest in music and film artists, later versions of the app will act as a one-stop shop for books, music, and movies.”

TREEbook™ versions of Medallion Press titles will begin to release late 2013. E-books in the MMG Sidekick store are $9.99 or less, even those with TREEbook™ versions.

With MMG Sidekick, customers can search for a specific Medallion Press book or browse by genre or author, view editorial reviews, and get personalized recommendations by opting in to the Notifications feature.
