What Is It?

media_1337353672719.png

A unique interactive story book that allows you to cast yourself or most probably your child as the character will ensure even the most reluctant of readers are engaged.

Is It Easy To Use?

Yes it is very easy to use and intuitive, most importantly. You can choose to have the story read to you or read it to yourself. You can select Narration on or off as well as background music too. You can even record yourself, or your child, reading the story and then listen to them read the book. There are coloring pages that you can select and paint on the screen, with a good selection of paintbrushes and colors. There are also puzzles you can do which are great fun too.

This interactive book is excellent, there’s no doubt about that and it is free but it’s only free up to page 8 of the story. After that you will need to make an in-app purchase of $3.99/£2.99 to read the rest. So although this book is technically free, think of it as a taster for you to decide whether you really do like it enough to purchase the full version.

Is It Fun?

If you’re a young child you will most definitely think so but perhaps more importantly from an adult perspective, your child is learning whilst they’re having fun – win/win.

Is It Pretty?

Very, the graphics are beautiful and very cleverly drawn.

 

Should You Download It?

We think so, if you have a young child, who perhaps is reluctant to pick up a traditional book, then this is one sure way to get them interested. You should definitely download it and try it with your child and we’re quite sure they will be pestering you to purchase the full version before you know it.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
