iClassics: Beyond Engrossing

iClassics unites the old and the new to create immersive experiences that inspire and move everyone.

Through cutting-edge technology and sophisticated artwork, the iPoe Collection Vol. 1 served as iClassics Production's first Immersive Entertainment app, and went on to gather numerous awards.

By casting a modern glare on a fine selection of Edgar Allan Poe's stories, the result is a spectacular and wholly original experience that utilizes every feature of modern mobile devices (gyro-perspective, flash, vibration).

TILT to reveal what's in the shadows

TOUCH to uncover obscured details

TURN to discover what lurks off the screen

Interaction, illustration, animation, FX, and OST all combine to create a unique and innovative entertainment experience that stands somewhere between the cinematic and the literary.

Edgar Allan Poe was a maverick, a man whose inventiveness and creative madness helped to define the horror and macabre genres.

It is thus fitting to experience his works in an equally inventive format that showcases his work in a modern and artistically sophisticated way.

In this first edition, the following classics are included:

-The Oval Portrait
-The Tell-Tale Heart
-Annabel Lee
-The Masque of the Red Death

-----------------------

"iPoe is of such high quality that it underscored the strength of Poe's material."

Captivating use of multimedia to heighten scary experience

Makes Gothic tales come alive. So far I’ve been pretty enthralled by Lovecraft and Poe. I’ve been one to have been entertained by the many ways to experience the depths of Cthulhu (games, graphic comics, Tarot, Necronomicon) and I remember I was drawn to Poe growing up with a comic format.

I look forward to Sleepy Hollow. I’ve always loved that tale. Tim Burton has always had a special place in my heart for divining deliciously dark sequences. And the Sleepy Hollow Disney Tale is worth waiting thru the Wind in the Willows Mr Toads (not so) Exciting Ride to see one of the scariest Disney animated episodes ever made. Love the transition from happy go lucky Icabod Crane singing and dancing to the scary ride home thru the woods of Sleepy Hollow. And the singing/narration of Bing Crosby are so rich.

Suspicious

These books are entertaining and well done, but unfortunately I have to give them a low rating due to the apps suspicious behavior. I have purchased all of the iclassics and found that they all immediately default to the 'on' position in cellular data and immediately use nearly a megabyte of data. Why a book would need to use any data at all is curious and that they use that much data is both odd and suspicious. I wrote to the company at the email posted on their website but received no response. I cannot recommend purchasing these books unless they stop this practice of sending whatever data they're gathering and using customers cellular data without permission.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we just released an update. Now the app works correctly. Regarding the data, we do not use data, we do not even ask for the email or name. Payment apps do not use any type of advertising. We are a small startup and we are trying to monetize the apps with just the payment per download. Our apologies for the delay to reply.

They're Baaaaaack

I'm not one for reviews, but I've loved every single app these guys and gals have put out...I was truly disconcerted after recent updates that all the content in each collection was locked...BUT! A single email to support got me back where I wanted to be, completely immersed in these incredible tales. Fastest and greatest app support I've seen yet... thank you!!
