Aside from being a very useful all-around mobile phone for business professionals, students and your average joe’s, the iPhone is also very child-friendly. Â My 5 year old daughter loves using her mother’s iPhone 3G to listen to music, play kiddie games and even take photos.
I’m pretty sure Â my daughter as well as the million of kids who are allowed by their parents to use their iPhones would love this new iPhone app – “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Yes folks, it’s the classic Christmas tale from Dr. Seuss getting a fresh treatment by way of a cool iPhone app.
The good thing is, it’s not only just your ordinary kiddie iPhone game because it is sort of an interactive ebook as well. Your kids could learn about this classic tale by letting the app read the story to them or they can read them on their own.
The app is also an educational tool for kids. They can tap on an item on the screen and listen to how it’s name is pronounced as well as see the word itself. The app also allows panning and zooming on the content of the ebook through touch gesture – hence the interactivity part.
When you’re kid choose to let the app read the ebook, each of the words are highlighted – an effective way of teaching kids some language lessons.
Ok before this post starts to sound like an iPhone app review, let me end here.
If you’ve got kids whom you think will enjoy this app, you can grab it from the iTunes Apps Store for $3.99. Â A bit higher than your usual $0.99 iPhone app, but is definitely much cheaper than standard ebooks you find at Amazon.
