Where Will I Go? is an interactive children's storybook app about the joys of travel and adventure. Narrated by world famous actor Brian Blessed, it takes a colourful (and educational) l look at the many exciting corners of the globe and asks, 'Where do you want to go?'.
The story follows a dad and his child (you choose the gender of the child) as they wander around a museum's international exhibit and daydream of the adventures the child may get up when older. It ignites a sense of adventure in the reader and introduces them to the joys of travel, while celebrating the special bond that exists between a father and his child.
Where Will I Go? is the sequel to the popular What Will I Be? app, which received multiple awards and glowing reviews, such as this one from Famigo.com: 'We thought the app was perfect'.
Full of interactivity to bring the story to life, there's a find-the-dog dog game throughout the story (find every dog to unlock a bonus memory game), as well as plenty of animations and interactions.

What's New in Version 1.1
This app had a few major issues. To start, it crashed a few times. It would not turn to the next page and would go completely blank. The only way to get through was to reboot my machine. The other major issue that I had was that the pictures and the words were very stereotypical and biased. It was if the author was trying to match the rhyming words to the culture that they were writing about it, for example in the United States it had two pictures of American Indians that were indicative of a time past. Many people would find these cultural references as being very offensive. Another example was on the page about India, the words used to describe the country were holy and people with big smiles.All in all this book is perpetuating a lot of incorrect and biased information. If we are teaching young children about the world, we should be prepared to give them a more responsible view.
