Reviews and Awards
"I showed this app to my three children aged 4, 8 and 13...I was surprised that even the 13 year old enjoyed it and I fully believe it is because this is a very slick app with lots to do and beautiful perspectives...it is somewhat similar to an animated film as opposed to a static style reading book app." – http://iheartthisapp.com.org
"I was amazed...This book app takes development to a whole new level. It raises the bar! The images are breathtaking and the scenery is so enticing I imagine myself on stage in a play" – BestAppsforKids.org
Recipient of Kids App Award! "A beautiful and striking 3D app...Definitely worth an award!"
"The art work in this app is top notch...Rumpelstiltskin HD is a great version of the classic story, and has been created masterfully for the iPad taking advantage of this mobile device’s technology." - Crazy Mike's Apps
"While it is the Retina 3D graphics that set this app apart from other storybooks, additional features like narration, stirring cinematic music and delightful animations also contribute to making the story come alive for young children." - iPhone App Review
Silicon Beach Software invites you and your child to explore a new type of interactive children's storybook. Created and rendered in 3D, it includes some scenes that feature 360º viewing. In Rumpelstiltskin HD, this classic Grimm Brothers fairy tale comes alive with narration, stirring cinematic music, and delightful animations. Tap on characters to hear what they have to say in each scene (but watch out, Rumpelstiltskin will give you a little attitude in one scene if you keep poking him).
Compare the price of this interactive app to the price of a printed book - for considerably less money, you not only get the printed story, but you get narrations, music, animations and the ability to interact with the scenes.
Buy it now . . . well, ok, watch the video first, then you'll really be convinced to buy it.
Why we don't highlight words during narration: Psycholinguistic studies have shown that when we read, our eyes do not simply go from one word to the next. We think training a young reader to go word-by-word would impede their progress in learning to read. Click here for a more in-depth description.
