Beautiful & stunning - The best iPad book!
This book is incredible, a genuine reinvention of the electronic book! I've been showing this to children (and adults) and they love it! I got this app after reading about it in The Sunday Times and watching the video. The critics are right, this really is the future of eBooks. The Mad Hatter's Tea Party is intriguing -- shake the iPad and the Mad Hatter bobbles about the screen. I use this to demonstrate my iPad's abilities.
You can turn the iPad upside down and Alice grows oddly tall. Rock the iPad gently and all kinds of strange and beautiful things start happening to the scenes. The artwork is brilliant and the story's as great as ever. Good old Lewis Carroll ! If you're looking for a good way to explain to your wife why you bought an iPad, this is it. I'm struggling to wrestle the iPad back off everyone I show this app to!
The physical simulations are great, they respond to all kinds of different changes in the iPad's orientation. Every telling of the story is different. What would make it perfect is a recorded narration, so you can leave young kids alone to be entertained by it. Having said that, it's quite motivating not having narration, since adults are then more likely to sit and read this with a child -- an experience I can recommend.
Looking forward to more titles adapted with this technology. Amazing work!
Great idea, let down by inattention to typography
This application is a mostly delightful demonstration of how much more an electronic book can offer than mere words on a page.
Unfortunately, despite the lavishing of attention upon the graphical elements of this work, some of the typographical details have been rather neglected. For example, non-typographical straight quotation marks make an intermittent and haphazard appearance throughout the text, although proper curved marks are sometimes used. I even noticed one instance where quotation marks around a phrase were opened but not closed. It’s a pity that the overall effect of this book is spoiled by such minor carelessness. I hope that future versions will rectify these distracting problems.
Interesting - but could have been so much better!
This is a fascinating variation on presenting a text, but despite the bright colours it is actually very limited... Objects differ, but their behaviour remains constant; things - tarts, flowers- fall, graphics move (slightly) from side to side, but there are few surprises. The heavily cut text doesn't help experience the narrative (too many sub-Carroll linking passages don't help, either).
It's a good show-off-the-iPad app., but it's expensive, and a long way short of the original. I wish I'd waited for the next version...
WELL - the next version is here, and very sadly all that's changed seems to be the addition of missing text, added on pages of identical background. No new animations; just page after page of static text....
