It is always nice to read a story on your iPhone or iPad in case if you are in a trip or something that bores you in between. I am a regular read of books from iBooks app on my iPad and sometimes I am a fan of storybooks too. Hansel and Gretel is a nice story telling app for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch developed by Epic Tales.
Hansel and Gretel shine especially in the animation department. The developers have given some stunning graphics throughout this application that gives a real feel of living as Hansel and Gretel. The entire story revolves around 26 colorful chapters. The app is outstanding one from the many storybooks I have tried so far.
You are set to choose from three options to read the book. You can read it by yourself as the story scrolls on the bottom of the screen or let the app plays the story with a great piece of audio runs on the background. There is an option to play the characters by touching them such as if you touch the father’s character (for an example), he starts cutting the woods as the first chapter gives the introduction about the father as a woodcutter and it continuous for all the other characters as well.
Hansel and Gretel is built with great sense in the animation and graphics knowing what kids can expect from these kinds of apps. Trust me; it is really a treat for your eyes! The app has all the ingredients for a good story book application, but lacks any kind of sharing through email or social networking websites.
The story is very interactive that gives it more realistic feel for anyone who reads the story. Hansel and Gretel may not be the right app for people of all ages; however this can be a pick for someone who loves the animated story reading, especially for school children.
Hansel and Gretel is a universal app available on the App Store for $4.99.
