[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Loud Crow Interactive Inc. today is proud to announce its debut digital book, PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit, has been chosen Apple's iPhone "App of the Week" in North America and several other countries. It is also the iPad "App of the Week" in Australia and New Zealand.
Since its release, PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit has been one of the bestselling book apps in both the iPad and iPhone app stores. In addition to receiving top marks by users and reviewers from around the world, the app has also been featured on many popular media sites including Mashable and FOX News.
"When we created this book, we wanted to ensure that the quality experience was consistent across both the iPad and the smaller form factor iPhone and iPod touch devices," says Calvin Wang, Founder and President. "Being selected as iPhone App of the Week is a testament that we've accomplished this goal."
PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit features uniquely interactive elements such as pull-tabs, spin-wheels, spring-mounted elements, and objects that literally pop out of the page. Immersive sound effects and a classical piano soundtrack accompany an elegant voice narration. The book features both "read to me" and "read it myself" modes and provides high educational value by allowing any word in the book to be read aloud simply by tapping it.
Loud Crow Interactive Inc. is currently working hard on publishing its next book project, a soon-to-be-announced Christmas title that will be released towards the end of the month. The title will be the second instalment in the PopOut! series of interactive books and will be available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices.
