[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - "My Daddy", a new interactive animated ebook for the iPhone and iPad, is in the App Store just in time for Father's Day, only $1.99. As a universal app, users can purchase the app once and install it on both their iPhone and iPad, optimized for each screen size.
Each page depicts a different scene of a boy spending time with his Daddy. Animation and interactivity, or touch spots, on every page. They play catch, Daddy teaches the boy how to ride a bike, they go fishing, Daddy scares away the monsters under the bed, and on and on. They are accompanied by a little white mouse that likes to be a part of the fun! But he likes to hide. Readers must tap around each page to find him. Watch the mouse ride off on a motorcycle while the boy is learning to ride his bike.
