I have this book already, but after buying an iPad, saw that it was also an ebook. I really wasn't expecting much from it, but wow, what an amazing ebook. It is completely magical. Everything comes to live, there are all sorts of pictures, trailers, and clips from the film to watch. It's is so colourful and inviting, I have only looked at the first few pages, as there is just so much to read and take in. If you are also planning a trip to the Harry Potter Studios in Leavesden, it is the perfect companion to take with you
I don't usually write reviews on apps but felt this one deserved one. I bought the book on the HP studio tour and the found the app which I decided to get to read on the go. The app is so much more than easier to read. With video clips, pictures, animations throughout and trailers it brings the book to life and makes a very enjoyable read and compliments the studio tour fantastically. I haven't been able to put it down
I contacted the app support and they responded very well and the ios5 issue is now fine - it was my mistake, not theirs. A very nice app and is full of some interesting facts that I'm sure many harry potter fans would love to find out about. The only thing preventing me from giving this 5 stars is the size, I'm torn as to whether to delete it or not, for space. Great app and great service if there is anything wrong with it too :)
