Fantastic audio, beautiful graphics
The book uses a very interesting pop-up effect which my son and daughter loved. The audiobook is very good. The book uses the 3D pop-up effect to show the original images from the book, which gives the book a very historic feel that's been freshened up. At various parts in the book they introduced objects that you can drag around the screen. The book contains a few little areas where you can actually discover interesting things. My son for instance discovered that if you drag the barrels of gun powder really fast they will explode.
The 3D effect that they use in the book for most of the pictures is not the 3D like toy-story, but rather a new visualization of 2D images. What makes this 3D view interesting is that you can actually tilt the images around as you drag.
Very entertaining. Some reviewers have commented that the audiobook is too fast. I didn't find that personally, in fact the sound effects and layering of the audio really make this a great story.
Great way to really enjoy a book
Robert Louis Stevenson's book really brought to life. What an amazing story. I could swear I'd read this book years ago, but if I did I completely forgot it. The way that this app brings the book to life makes it something I can not put down. I never thought there would be such an incredible difference between just reading a book and being able to also set it down and listen to it from time to time.
Great job, looking forward to more apps like this.
The Story Brought to Life
This application really helped bring this classic story to life for me and my son. The pictures and interactive features help to explain the story action as awell as keep him engaged. This is really well done and I highly recommend it.
