★Made for iPad! And works beautifully on the iPod Touch and iPhone devices too.
★The "interactive" part comes in the form of games, activities, hidden Easter eggs, and the like. Gorgeous artwork, read-along text, and a reasonable price tag...What's not to like?
★The classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" gets a terrific iPad makeover.
★I was really impressed with Jack and the Beanstalk Children’s Interactive Storybook. It takes full advantage of the iPad’s size and looks great. The addition of the hidden activities within the story make it a fun app that my son really enjoyed

Experience Jack and the Beanstalk like never before in this wonderfully illustrated storybook, featuring over 30 pages of interactivity which your child will enjoy. This timeless tale comes alive with audio narration, read-along text, and interactive games and features. Each page contains a hidden surprise! Come and dive into the pages of Jack and the Beanstalk and join Jack in his adventure to defeat the giant!
SPOILER WARNING - Don't read this next section if you want to discover all the great surprises in this app on your own!
All 32 pages are interactive, but here are some highlights you won't want to miss.
Tilt the application to watch the sun move. Move the sun with your finger below the mountains and observe day turn to night. Touch the house to watch and hear the chimney puff.
Touch the beans to play the memory matching game.
Magically finger-paint the black -and-white page. When most of the image has been painted, stars will burst with enchanting sounds, and reveal an amazingly vivid image. When the page is in color, touch the lake to play a popup game. Shake the device to either finish the painting or to restart painting again.
Touch Jack to get him to sing. It may take a few times...he's shy!
The Giant is high on the beanstalk. Tilt the device and watch the Giant sway. The Giant will complain when you shake the device - he's afraid of heights.
What's New in Version 1.3.4
Added the ability to be launched from other apps using the following URL Scheme.
Sound not working for the last year - pls listen to your feedback !
This used to be a great app - used to be my child's favourite. But some update about a year ago introduced a bug and the sound on this app has not worked ever since. In fact, when I go to the app settings and switch the sound 'ON', then at that very moment, the app crashes. When I re-launch, the sound has been set back to off - when I try to switch it on, it crashes again without exception. I cannot believe the developer has not realised this problem yet. There are already reviews in here telling that the sound is not working. But no action from the developer or even acknowledgement of the problem.
Well converted to and interactive book.
This has been really nicely narrated and the imagery and interaction is very good.
Did have a sound issue but I followed the tips on the support page and it's now working.
