The Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted interactive storybook app is packed with fans’ favorite Zoosters, including Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe. It also gives parents a wholesome way for kids to relive the action in storybook form.
* Circusize Yourself - Rev up the storytime experience with this bonus feature that allows fans to utilize the face tracking features of iOS 5 to make themselves look like one of the new circus crew members in real time. Circusize Yourself works with both the back facing camera to capture their parents or their friends as well as front facing camera to take photos of themselves.
* Fans can also take to the air and test out their balancing skills with the new “Tight Rope” activity where they get to use the device’s accelerometer capabilities to walk from one side to the other without falling.
Following the original plot of the movie, Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a nice app to go along with the movie. It has great quality pictures and having the actors voices throughout make it better! The pictures with the 3 hats were great! Suggestions would be 1) In the "read by myself" section, the child should be able to tap any word on the bottom and have it highlight and read to them. This will help with beginning readers as well as struggling readers who may need help with the more difficult words. 2) The tightrope game was too quiet. I wish at the end there was applause and/or confetti or balloons on the screen...something more exciting! 3) More movements with the pictures along with the voices with the stars, especially the first three scenes. There were only voices. Movement and actions hold childrens attention longer. Especially in the beginning, you want them to be captured in the app. 4) It would be great to be able to email the pictures to family and friends!
This app is very high quality. I thought the extras could have been better, especially the tight rope. The main downside is the size of the app. With my device I needed to delete several other apps to get the download to work.
This app is great. Perfect for kids an very interactive. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I think the price is a little high. Maybe 2.99 would be a little more realistic.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
