Last week, as anyone reading this on an iPhone or iPad will undoubtedly already know, Apple released iOS 8, the latest version of their mobile software. And with it came one or two features that were particularly interesting for us.
There’s lots of good stuff around Family Sharing. The iBooks app now comes pre-loaded onto new devices (which is great news for our new iBook picture books). And, perhaps best of all, Apple have introduced App Bundles.
App Bundles allow developers to offer groups of apps at a discounted price – something for which we’ve been waiting for a while. All of our apps are still available for individual purchase, but now you can buy some of them in a pack – and save some money by doing so! And, if you already own some of the apps included, you can complete a bundle and only pay the balance for the remaining apps.
So, you can now buy both of our Rounds apps, Franklin Frog and Parker Penguin, for the EXCELLENT price of $5.99/ £3.99 – only $1/ £1 more than the individual price for each app. Illustrated in a bold, graphic style – using only circles and divisions of circles – and with ingenious interactivity, original music and lively child voice narration, these apps combine a warm, accessible wit with educational content, making them perfect for both the home and the classroom. Learn about biology with dozens of fun facts about frogs and penguins, and join in with every stage of each animal’s life – the apps are GREAT for inspiring enthusiasm and teaching young children about the natural world.
Or you can buy all four of our award-winning fairytale apps
for the UNBEATABLE price of $9.99/ £6.99 – compared to $19.99/ £11.99 if you bought the apps individually. Experience The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk as you’ve never seen them before!
Or if you’re new to our apps (and perhaps have just bought your first iPad or iPhone and are new to the App Store, too), then our Nosy Crow Super Bundle is for you! Featuring TEN of our award-winning story apps, this is a fantastic starter pack of essential kids apps. You can get ALL of the fairytales, AND the Rounds app, AND our two Bizzy Bear apps, Bizzy Bear on the Farm and Bizzy Bear Builds a House, AND two apps by Axel Scheffler, Animal SnApp: Farm and Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm – and all for $19.99/ £13.99 – a FANTASTIC saving down from $43.99/ £26.69.
