Twinkle Twinkle iPad/iPhone App Update
We’ve been really happy with the feedback we’ve received on our first iPad/iPhone app, Twinkle Twinkle. Version 1.0 received stellar reviews from Kirkus Reviews, PadGadget.com, Digital Storytime.com, GiggleApps.com and more. And with 98 ratings in the U.S. iTunes store, it has averaged 4.5 out of 5 stars.
But we still wanted to add some things to make it extra special, so we’ve just released Twinkle Twinkle version 2.0. Here’s what to look for:
1) Record Your Own Voice – Now you can choose to record yourself telling the story. Parents can record the story for their children. Kids can record themselves reading the story. Or you can record your own version of the story (use a different language, simplify the story, etc.). This is a really great tool for getting kids excited about reading.
2) New touch animations and sound effects – We’ve added some fun additional effects, while keeping things simple so as not to take away from the story. Touch the moon and watch it glow! Play the “Twinkle twinkle” tune on the star and the moon! Find the shooting stars! Let us know what else you find ^_^.
3) Larger home and page-turning buttons – Thanks to your feedback, we’ve added bigger buttons to make navigation easier.
Let us know what you think! We’d really appreciate it if you’d leave us a review in the iTunes store.
Hope you enjoy it!
To Android users: We’re really sorry we don’t have an Android app available yet. It turns out developing for Android, with the multiple platforms, has not been as straightforward as we had hoped. This storybook app is pretty rich in content, involving videos transitions and multiple effects, and it has proven difficult to keep the full functionality in an Android version. Rather than release a watered-down version, we’re still trying to re-create the full experience. We’re sorry to keep you waiting! Thanks for your patience.
