Cowboys and Aliens: The Kids by ISBX

This title is based on the 2006 graphic novel about a group of cowboys trying to save townspeople abducted by aliens. Timed to release as "Cowboys & Aliens" hit theaters this summer, this title is only vaguely related to the movie's more mature plot. In this book, fictional kids are introduced representing sterotypical 'cowboys', 'indians' and 'aliens'. The storyline has the kids refusing to share their toys but soon they decide it would be more fun if they can all play together. Told in rhyme, the story ends with new friendships made (and possibly peace in the universe).

The app is solidly made with a lot of nice settings & extras, including painting pages based on all 23 pages of Read more …

Shrek Forever After- Kids' Book HD by FrogDog Media

This app version of the beloved movie, "Shrek Forever After," is a visually beautiful book on the iPad.  It has still images of all the major plot points from the movie while doing a nice retelling of Shrek's run-in with Rumpelstiltskin.  The story has a nice moral, too, since in the end Shrek learns to appreciate what he has.  For fans of the movie, this iPad book version will also be a fun trip through all their favorite scenes.

This book is not, however, animated in any way, which can be a disappointment to kids who are expecting an experience more like the animated iPad movie-book releases.  As a parent, though, I realize that this book might be a nice bedtime treat Read more …

Nimbus Littling & the Flu from Nebtune 2, HD by KwiqApps Inc.

Nimus Littling is a science fiction story presented with ethereal computer graphics and a simple format that has images that are brought into focus as the narration and music play. There is no animation or interactivity ... only a tale, told in rhyme, that will amuse young readers ages 8-12, older than the typical picture book crowd.

The story is about an alien spaceship that crashes into earth, although the 'earthlings' are pictured more as elf-like creatures, with Nimbus in the lead. The alien culture is very similar to the earthlings, with a language that is English with A/O and P/B switched, not unlike pig-latin and other kinds of made up languages children like to Read more …
