App developer Amazing Books brings 3D to the iPhone/iPad

On November 18, 2010

The other day we conducted an interview with the guys from Amazing Books.

Thanks to my son (who just turned two yesterday) I have spent a great deal of time playing around with “Jack and the Beanstalk 3D” and “The Three Little Pigs 3D“. While these are timeless children’s’ classics Amazing Books has done an outstanding job of modernizing them. The Flomotion control system they developed puts you in control of the animation and really adds to the experience. My son loves interacting with the characters in the stories and this unique technology makes it all possible.

In addition to that, I enjoy the fact that I can either read the stories or let app do the reading for me. This is great when I am unable to read to him when he demands. We can play the book, I can finish up what I am doing, and he gets his story. Everybody wins. As far as graphics go I am not a huge fan but you can tell a lot of work went into them and they are very well done.

Both “Jack and the Beanstalk 3D” and “The Three Little Pigs 3D” can be purchased in the app store for $2.99. Amazing Books plans to expand their offierings this month with “Red Riding Hood 3D” and “My First Trip to Washington DC 3d.”

Finally, if you are looking for some great apps to entertain your kids during those long holiday breaks I highly recommend these books. If they love them half as much as my son does then $2.99 is a great investment.
