The Jungle Book: Classic Storybook App for the iPad Review

I had a chance to try out The Jungle Book: Classic Storybook App for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and I really liked it and wanted to share the app with you.

The app, which is $3.99 in the iTunes store, allows the owner to use their Apple device to “read” the storybook. You will find interactive games such as puzzles, sing-alongs, and pictures to “paint” online, embedded in the story as you progress through the pages.

When you first log on you will be asked to “personalize” your book by inserting your picture and a name. This really doesn’t serve any purpose than just looking cool from what I can tell however. Let me tell you a bit more about the app.

The Storybook: The art is absolutely beautiful in the app. The voice that reads along with each highlighted word is also pleasant to listen to and can help early readers with their training.It has that classic haze that permeates the original Jungle Book movie. At times, the picture is still and at times the character will dance or their eyes will move. So it both feels like a book and a movie of sorts.

I didn’t care much for the painting games. If you don’t have a stylus they’d be hard to do, but perhaps little fingers playing along would have an easier time.

Record your own voice: Another neat thing I found on this app was the ability to record your own voice. I was thinking it would be particularly nice if a parent was traveling to have them “read” the book, record it, and then have it readily available at bedtime. It also allows the reader to have the words light up without a voice reading.

On the whole I think it is a good application. My 10 year old son and 5 year old daughter were entertained and, again, the artwork is beautiful. Enjoy!
