Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful but too abridged
This is a beautiful-looking application, and my daughter and I have really enjoyed reading it together. She likes the illustrations and the little bits of interaction. Really the only two complaints are: 1) It's not well-proofread or edited, so there are typos and awkward transitions; 2) it's simply too abridged. The free version will get you most of the book, so once you pay you get just a bit more, because they've edited the story so aggressively. That leads to the awkward transitions, and there's too much of the story missing. Even my 6-1/2 year-old daughter knew that there was much of the story edited out. Come on, guys, give us an update with more of the book put back in, okay? It can't be that hard. Give us most or all of the story and I'll immediately up my rating to 5 stars. This could be an example of where books can be taken in the future, but instead it feels a bit cheap.
I wish I could return for a refund
I impulsively bought this app after watching the demo video online and I'm sorry to say, the experience is deeply disappointing. Every single person I handed the iPad to tried to interact with the animations by touching them, it's an touch screen after all, and seemed surprised that they couldn't. One can't "flip" pages intuitively, instead having to rely on a clunky-looking arrow navigation. Same goes for the accelerometer-controlled animations, my kids want to touch, move things with their fingers, interact... not just watch them floating across the page. Very sad. Oh yeah... there's no sound either. The illustrations are GORGEOUS but the sporadic big typography inserts are overdone and inconsistent (with tacky drop shadows and emboss). Just not elegant at all. I eagerly paid for it but I expected a lot more, while my kids, even thou they love books, were bored.
Room for improvements
I enjoyed this, the illustration style was decent could have been better but we don't have much choice yet regrading various digital version in this new form or media so yeah. What i found lacking was sound effects, why go part way there? motion of graphics is great but sounds would have been nice along with audio reading of the book with a few choices of vocal talents. Developers need to push all angles if they want consumers to fork over the cash for such media, sounds for page turning and let the user set preferences and toggle them off for battery conservation if the battery is running low etc.
This is good work and i love it for what it is but there IS ROOM for improvements.
