It is highly recommended that you upgrade your device to iOS5 for optimal performance.
The app allows viewers to immerse themselves into the world created by the filmmakers on their iPad. The Art of the Adventures of Tintin features 360° Immersive Environments, 360° Turnaround Characters, Video Clips and Exclusive new content, as a part of the narrative that turns the amazing story and evolution of Hergé’s original artwork into the blockbuster 3D performance captured in the film directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy.
Based on content from the beautifully presented book, the Art of the Adventures of Tintin by Chris Guise, the app takes the reader further into the story by exploring and interacting with various features throughout the book. Readers are able to see the transformation of concept illustrations into final shots from the film, as well as listen to the artists and filmmakers who worked on the film, including Oscar Winners Joe Letteri and Richard Taylor. Joe Letteri and Richard Taylor also share their insights into the filmmaking experience in their video introductions for this outstanding book. The die-hard Tintin fan can also take pleasure in the inclusion of never before published footage of Hergé working in his studio as well as never seen before concept art and interactive features.

Loved this app
This app is amazing. It is full fo great content, with clever interactivity. I especially adore the 3D models and environment turnarounds it provides. I have a lot of art books, but I adore this ap for the content you get with the price. I am looking forward to other art books that come out with this same level of craftmanship!
If you're a tintin fan you'll absolutely love this. I really enjoy how it takes you behind the scene that is behind the scenes and how much work actually goes into making something like this work!
UPDATE: This App Is Now Dead
With the upgrade to OS 11, this app, which I paid decent money for, is now dead. I doubt the developers have any intention of upgrading it. Going forward, I will never purchase any app that costs more than 99 cents.
This 'book' is fantastic. I loved the movie (and am a life-long fan... so I was being a bit picky going in).
The interactive format is a delight!
