The classic Grimm Brothers fairytale Rumpelstiltskin comes to the iPad in a technology driven version featuring awesome 3D graphics, 360 degree viewing of each page, with item and character interactions throughout the book in Rumpelstiltskin HD – A 3D Children’s Interactive Storybook, by Silicon Beach Software. This iPad book application has 31 pages of excellent 3D animated pages, each beginning with a short animation clip before allowing users to explore the rooms. You can scroll side to side, up and down, and tap on items and characters to get a more engaging story experience than just reading. You can either read the story yourself or you can have it narrated for you by changing the settings in the scroll on the upper right. The scroll has music and narration controls, and text for reading without narration — the scroll can be rolled up to be put out of the way while exploring each room. The art work in this app is top notch and there are 26 different music pieces throughout this story — which is almost a unique piece of music for each page. Rumpelstiltskin HD is a great version of the classic story, and has been created masterfully for the iPad taking advantage of this mobile device’s technology.

Why we don’t highlight words during narration: Psycholinguistic studies have shown that when we read, our eyes do not simply go from one word to the next. We think training a young reader to go word-by-word would impede their progress in learning to read. For a more in-depth discussion go to:
– Graphics optimizations, framerate significantly increased
– Some bugs related to the scroll have been fixed
