What's New in Version 2.9
- Fixed problems with iOS 5 Devices
This app gives 21st century enhancement to classic and timeless literature, allowing you to experience Poe's work in an entirely original, creative, and immersive way. Almost every page of each story is somehow interactive or animated, but subtly and appropriately, so as to enhance the writing without overshadowing it (and rarely in the same way twice). An excellent soundtrack and sound effects add to the immersion and atmosphere. I love the artistic creativity that went into this masterfully executed interactive story set, and I am so glad that app developers are really starting to push the boundaries of conventional media with tablet devices. I am excited to experience iPoe 2, and I hope there is more work of this type from Play Creatividad. Also, btw, if you enjoy iPoe, check out "Upgrade Soul," a similarly creative modern graphic novel.
When I first started reading Poe, it was a very challenging read. I would understand the plot, but it was so confusing to me. This app really helps you to understand the whole story line way better than just reading the actual words. This app cleverly uses pictures and movable items in the story to help you get a better understanding of it. I recommend this app to anyone who doesn't understand Poe's short stories very well. This is a great interactive app that helps people understand the horror of his stories. Before I found this app, I thought Poe's stories were boring to read. However, this app changed that. I actually want to read more of his stories because now they make sense to me and I can see the horror and disgusting images that he was trying to convey.
Huge Kudos, I love it!
What an absolutely thrilling and enjoyable way to present the writings of Poe.. not only for myself as an adult but also for that young child/teenager who isn't exactly exciting about reading such classic material. It's an automatic thought pattern (at times for some, not ALL) that if such reading material is handed out as a school assignment then it must be boring.. ugh! LoL Huge kudos to the Dev(s) and whomever else came up with this interactive concept because there's nothing boring about it when presented in such a creative fashion.
Well done, very impressive!
