Our Little Red Riding Hood app came out yesterday, and we’ve been absolutely blown away by the response.
The Guardian have given the app a fantastic 5-star review. Here’s some of what they have to say:
“One of the best examples yet of how to do it right … with beautifully-crafted scenes and characters, and careful use of interactivity and even non-linear storytelling to encourage early reading skills … In short, Little Red Riding Hood is rather marvellous: a children’s book-app that impresses with its technical chops, but more importantly with its firm focus on storytelling and reading skills.”
You can read the full review here.
The app’s had some incredible support on the App Store. It’s an Editor’s Choice app for the whole US iPhone App Store (you can see the banner at the top of this post), and it’s also on the front page of iTunes for the US Store. Not just the App Store. iTunes. It’s also an Editor’s Choice app for the Books and Education categories of the US Store, an Editor’s Choice app for the Education category in the UK, the #1 New and Noteworthy app for the whole UK App Store, and as of this morning, is the #1 Paid iPad Book App for the UK!
Needless to say, we’ve never had a response like this before.
And we’d like to celebrate! So first of all, here’s the next of our character films, featuring Little Red Riding Hood’s long-suffering Grandma – I wonder what she thinks happened in the story?
And we also have a copy of the app to giveaway! You can win a copy of Little Red Riding Hood by RT-ing this tweet – we’ll pick a winner at random at the end of the day!
Thank you to everyone who’s written to us on Facebook and Twitter – it’s fantastic to hear that so many of you are enjoying Little Red Riding Hood.
