Timo and the Magical Picture book
An interactive picture book

Timo receives a picture book made by his Uncle Nick. It’s a very special book, because once you open it, you will be inside it. But you’re not supposed to shake the book, otherwise everything will get completely mixed up.

A truly amazing and hilarious app, which you won’t resist shaking! Make plates fall from the cupboard or see how mother bakes a cake in the washing machine.

The app starts with beautiful animations you can swipe through. As soon as Timo is inside the magical picture book, you can manipulate the pages by shaking your iPad, blowing into its microphone, and touching page elements. When Timo and his family fall out of the magical picture book into the living room you can enjoy the animations again.

• Story by Rian Visser, author of more than 50 children’s books.
• Appealing illustrations by Belgian illustrator Klaas Verplancke, winner of the prestigious Bologna Ragazzi Award 2001 and many other awards.
• 10 full animations, interactive elements like shake, turn, swipe, tap and blow. Special sound effects and narration.
• Blow into the iPad’s microphone and make Timo grow as big as a balloon!


• Digitalstorytime: Overall this book is fabulous. If you're looking for a book your child will come back to over and over, this one is not only a sure bet, but also one adults will enjoy.
• Appenthusiast: This is where the book as an iPad app really shines. You (and your children) can shake or tilt your iPad in a way that would change the objects shown within the book.
• Apps4kids: This is a delightful book app that got a nice spot on our virtual bookshelf for night time reads.
• Theiphonemom: I enjoyed the clever, quirkiness of this story and I think the illustrations are very appealing. Timo and the Magical Picture Book is an original story that translates well to the tricks of the iPad.
• iphonefootprint: An excellent app for parents and kids to enjoy together.
• Downloadbookforipad: This appealing picture book comes to life by an amazing amount of interactive features and very professionally made animations, together with special audio effects.
• Kids-apps.moby: “Don’t tell Uncle Nick how the story ends!”

Een van de beste kinderboeken apps

In deze update zijn de kleine bugs verholpen. Ik heb de app nu twee jaar en hij verveeld nog steeds niet. Het blijft tot nu toe nog steeds een geweldige kinderboeken app. Ben benieuwd of er een nieuw deel zal verschijnen? Er is namelijk nog een ander boek over Timo van dezelfde makers. Timo en het Toverstokje!

Totaal niet intuïtief

Per pagina is een gebruiksaanwijzing opgenomen. Dat is ook nodig want deze applicatie werkt totaal niet intuïtief. De animaties zijn magertjes. De beloftes van een totaal interactief boek, worden wat mij betreft niet waargemaakt. Daarnaast is de Nederlandse verteller doodsaai. Er had net zo goed een telefoonboek voorgelezen kunnen worden, dat was net zo spannend geweest.
Absoluut het geld niet waard. Zeker niet de volle prijs van 3,99 euro.

Ik vind Timor een prachtig boekJE, maar het verschil tussen de light versie en volledige versie (slechts enkel pagina's meer) rechtvaardigt het belachelijke verschil in prijs niet! Het is eigenlijk maar een heel kort verhaaltje, zonder echte gebruikmaking van de mogelijkheden van de iPad (bv. Het boekje schudden zoals uitdrukkelijk 'verboden' wordt.
