Hadoota leverages the intuitiveness of video editors, to deliver a software that enables authors to produce a non-linear as well as linear narrative, and the reader to have a unique reading experience.
Hadoota in its current stage works on text and online image content. However it's built with other media types in mind, example: videos.
Hadoota provides the author with means to create multiple versions of the same story, and adding meta-data to the story to give each reader a unique experience.
