What's New in Version 3.1
Turbo-charged performance. Improved access to other Alice titles.
Beautiful App - Not so Beautiful Update
I love the look of the app and it goes perfectly with the story of Alice in Wonderland complete with moving objects.
It's also an excellent format in that you can choose between the full book as it was initially written, or an abridged 'Bedtime Story' version.
As for the update - I had gone from version 3.0 to what is now, 3.1. The changes were understandable. There were ads and links and so forth, which is normal for a free app. Nonetheless I found them to be too distracting from the original intended atmosphere, that of an old, Victorian era book.
That said, I did try the new version, but then chose to downgrade it, back to version 3.0. It's very lovely and generous either way, as it is both beautiful and free, but the older version is far better.
Needs 'Read to me'
Decent ebook, but needs read to me option. Full app costs twice as much as Peter Rabbit or the Seuss books and they all had Read to Me. No e-book for kids should be without that feature. I will not buy the full app, even though this is one of my favorite stories.
