The iPad is many things, and tomorrow it will become an interactive children’s book with the addition of the Wild About Books app for iPad. The release of this app will follow with more 3D interactive interpretations of children’s books like Pat the Bunny, Little Golden Books, a in the months ahead.
Scenes in the story are animated and interactive, children can tilt, swipe and tap through the story. Speed of the narration can be adjusted to each reader, or turned off all together. One book allows the reader to flip monkeys, make beach balls bounce, animals stampede or bears burp. It sounds all very exciting, children will be enamored with the fun animations while hopefully providing them with an educational experience. The app becomes available tomorrow on iTunes for $4.99 (regular $7.99).
