What crazy creatures will you meet today? Our new app is out now!

Last week we wrote about the upcoming launch of iOS 7 and the new Kids’ App category of the App Store – and we also said that we had some new things to announce. Well… here they are!

MOST excitingly, our new app is out today!

We’ve made an app of Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm, the hilarious rhyming flip-flap book that we published in print format this month, with artwork by Axel Scheffler.

Instead of the split-page, spiral-bound format, our app uses a wonderfully intuitive, user-friendly interface: you can swipe any part of the screen to create 121 different combinations of animal halves, rhymes and silly, hybrid animal names – all read aloud and set to farmyard music.

Here’s the trailer for Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm:

And here it is on the App Store, for just $0.99/ £0.69.

You’ll have to use the app yourself to see quite how satisfying it is: a fantastically simple concept, a clean design, rich artwork from Axel and very funny poems – and all for less than a dollar.

Here’s what to look for on the App Store:

Share your favourite animal combinations from the app with us on Twitter with the #flipflapfarm hashtag and we’ll give away copies of our other apps to our favourites!

And that’s not all! To mark the launch of iOS 7, we’re also giving some of our existing apps a bit of a refresh with some brand new icons. Here’s how they’ll appear on the App Store from today:

The updated apps also include some features that we think will improve your experience of using them, like a new “gating mechanism” across the whole catalogue which is designed to prevent a child from inadvertently accessing the “More Apps” page of each app – so you can feel safe knowing that our apps won’t cost you a fortune.

If you enjoy Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm, or one of our other apps, we’d be incredibly grateful if you’d consider leaving a review on the App Store – it’s so important to us. And if you’d like to stay up to date with our upcoming apps, you can sign up for our Apps Announcement Mailing List here.

We hope you enjoy Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm!
