[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - Blue Finger Inc., a burgeoning mobile application developer currently focusing on a wide variety of application genres, has today announced their excitement over the enthusiastic customer reception of Oz Wizard: The Interactive Storybook for Children for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app offers younger users the chance to experience the classic story of the Wizard of Oz in a dynamically interactive fashion, including visual animations, optional vocal narration, as well as in-story sound effects. Audiences have already embraced this imaginative digital storybook, leading it to be featured in the Apple App Store's "What's Hot" and "New and Noteworthy" featured categories as well as being the most downloaded paid iPad application in Apple's Books category in Korea's iTunes App Store for a time in late 2010. Oz Wizard: The Interactive Storybook for Children is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $1.99.
This storybook application provides young users with a fully engrossing fantasy experience, engaging them with dynamic animated visual imagery, and audio features. Furthermore, this application engages kids by having them complete a variety of tasks in order for the story to successfully move forward. This creates an interactive dynamic within the app that gives it the feels of a narrative driven game rather than being a simple storybook. To encourage children to practice their reading skills, as children become more adept at following through the app's storyline, they can switch off audio narration and read the story themselves.
To help make Oz Wizard more accessible to beginning readers, the application is capable of automatically highlighting relevant text as the story progresses to help orient them. The app itself is structured to be used by younger users without the need for direct adult assistance. It's user interface is simple and intuitive, while interactive portions of the story itself are clearly marked for ease of use. A perfect synthesis of the timeless heart warming saga of the Wizard of Oz together with modern mobile technology to make it a fully interactive and user engaged experience, Oz Wizard: The Interactive Storybook for Children gives children an opportunity to develop various skills while at once thoroughly entertaining themselves.
