Submerge yourself in the world of Monty Python & the Holy Grail as the six members of Monty Python take you on their foolhardy quest to make an epic film in just 28 days (coconuts not included) through this interactively interactive Holy Book of Days.
In order to re-create authentically all 28 shooting days of The Holy Grail, the Pythons have gone back to their vaults and pulled out a treasure trove of never-before-seen (or heard) outtakes, rehearsals, songs, sound effects, scripts, dozens of stills, and much much more.
Every page of the Holy Book of Days is packed with Python history, from Michael Palin’s day-by-day diary of the filming to Terry Gilliam’s storyboards to the original continuity sheets covering every shot to 360º views of props from the movie, it’s an unprecedented and a totally new look at Holy Grail.
The Holy Book of Days is crammed with over a gigabyte of media, including:
* More than 70 minutes of never-before-seen video, including outtakes and visits to the Holy Grail locations.
* Interactive 360° Props
* More than an hour of audio, featuring rehearsals, wild tracks, songs, sound effects and your favorite quotes from the film
* Interactive map
* Original animations
* Never-before-seen stills
* An introduction by John Cleese
* The screenplay
* Continuity Sheets
* Michael Palin’s Diaries
* And more!
The Holy Book of Days is a stand-alone app -- but it can also provide a Second Screen companion to the Blu-ray release of Monty Python & the Holy Grail. With your iPad and Blu-ray player synced via your WiFi network, the app becomes your remote control and lets you see the exact scenes talked about in The Holy Book of Days. It’s an entirely new way of watching the film.

Highly polished but was it tested ?
I want to love this app. It's been carefully put together you can see that. And when it works it is pure joy to use. The problem is that it never seems to work for too long.
I have to constantly restart the app. The main issue seems to be after you play a video. Sometimes you get a few to play without issue but usually after one or two videos the app hangs. Terribly frustrating when the content is so good.
I am using a new iPad 3 and hope a patch will be forthcoming.
The app hangs and doesn't show a reaction on gestures, very annoying. I had to restart the app several times now it's not really good with swipes at all. Really sad cause I love mp very much but I hope they will bring a patch soon.
I use a iPad generation three and the app should be able to run very fast on it.
