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.
Perfect for the Alice fan
I have never reviewed anything, however I feel this app deserved a review. I remember this app being demonstrated on Oprah and all I could think was "I need to buy an iPad just so I can have this!" I am not disappointed, however I do feel this was a little more pricey than need be. For those complaining that there aren't enough interactive parts, this is comparable to a children's pop-up book which is at least twice the price and has fewer "interactive" parts. This definitely has the classic Alice feel and I highly recommend purchasing it.
There's a lot to like here. It uses the Tenniel illustrations. The interactive features are in the spirit of the book. It looks great. The full text is now available (the original was horribly abridged, with all of the poems deleted) and an editing error in 3.0 has been corrected.
The main thing, maybe the only thing, now is to fix the "index", which, in the unabridged version, is simply a list of pages that, if you have great patience, you can scroll through. Even a table of contents would be a huge improvement over this. Five stars when this issue is resolved.
