The Mousey Howsee and the Rescuers interactive storybook app for iPad utilizes your local weather, season and time of day to create a custom adventure experience.
Meet Mousey Howsee, a little mouse who goes on big adventures. In this unique eBook and activity app your child can listen to or read the story of Mousey Howsee and the Rescuers, play memory games, and learn valuable lessons such as how to call the emergency number.
In an intelligent twist the story your child reads changes depending on the local weather. Does the weather forecast call for rain? Then Mousey will steal to the docks through the storm. Is it time to get some sleep? Mousey’s adventure story will begin with a goodnight scene.
The app utilizes your iPad’s GPS for accuracy. Now that’s smart.
Another feature parents are sure to love: this app has no advertisements and no link to outside purchases or additional apps. It is completely kid friendly. That kind of app does come at a price. Mousey Howsee and the Rescers interactive storybook and mini game will cost $5.99 to download from iTunes. That is still cheaper than buying a traditional storybook.
Other stellar features include the app’s realistic page turn design, dedicated navigation bar that tucks away easily at the bottom of the screen and animated story scenes.
Mousey Howsee and the Rescuers earns top marks for its unique seasonal story lines, brilliant interactive illustrations and true storybook experience.
This is the first book in the world where the story line changes according to the time of the day and outside weather. Check out how the Mousey Howsee is renting a boat on a nice day and stealing it on a rainy.
This is the first technologically new interactive electronic tale. Text, images, audio, games, animation are combined here. All of these things charm the reader, but at the same time encouraging to look through the window and check what’s going on – after all, the story changes depending on the weather, season and day-time.
Sales of the app will start 2011 10 17, so you will one of the first people, who will see this interactive e-book 🙂
