Last week we launched a special sale to celebrate our Jack and the Beanstalk app‘s third birthday – and there’s just a week left to download the app at this special price!
You can download the app from the App Store for 99p here.
If you’re new to the app, here’s out trailer for Jack and the Beanstalk:
The recipient of a FutureBook Award, a Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice Award, a Parents’ Choice Award, a Kirkus Star, and 5-star reviews from The Sunday Times, Common Sense Media, Tech with Kids, and more, this is a truly fantastic app – we are incredibly proud of it.
Conceived and created with reading for pleasure at its heart, Jack and the Beanstalk rewards the reader’s success with more story, and encourages repeat play with endless variety. You can play games in different rooms of the giant’s castle, and collect keys to unlock more of the story – and every so often, Jack meets the sleeping giant, and your success (or failure) at collecting his treasure determines the outcome of the whole story.
It’s a brilliant re-telling of the story that contains all the familiar elements that everyone knows and love – along with lots of imaginative new features. We’ve made the app with an emphasis on reading for pleasure that we think will be especially good at encouraging reluctant readers (and reluctant boy readers in particular) who love on-screen gaming to participate in a reading experience.
This birthday app sale will end in one week’s time, on February 8 – so if you’d like to get Jack and the Beanstalk at this special price, don’t delay!
If you do download Jack and the Beanstalk, we’d be incredibly grateful if you’d consider leaving a review on the App Store – it makes a huge difference!
