Tsar Saltan

It is a great work by the developers, in bringing out a classic story as Book app for the iPad. This app provides an unique reading experience for all. The background is laid out in a classical way, so that it resembles a paper of the ancient times.

The Russian Classic is presented in beautifully presented in English, for the international audience. In all the forty-five pages, you’ve been show art. Which is thematically related to the text in that particular page. The app also has sounds, various animations and responses of the art, to the angle in which you tilt the iPad, using the accelerometer to the full extent. You can move the arts that move, even with your fingers. You can read the story on your own or you can record the audio for that page, so that it will be easier for the kids to read it. You have option to change the text in the app to Russian.

To turn the pages you have two ways, using the arrows in the bottom of the page or use two of your fingers to turn each page. The story is also so interesting to that it creates an eagerness to read further.

Being a kids app the only thing that bothers me, is the font used throughout the book. Which is ancient and classic, but my 7 year old son struggled a little and asked for clarification often. In all other angles this book is more worthier than what we pay.
