[prMac.com] Poway, California - Silicon Beach Software, Inc. announces its latest iOS app, Snow White: The Prequel. The app is an interactive storybook for children three to eight years of age. Have you ever wondered what made Snow White's evil stepmother so evil, or how the magic mirror came to be? This original story is a precursor to the classic Grimm Brothers' Snow White and tells of the origins of the evil queen and explains who is in the mirror.
While it is the 3D graphics that set this app apart, additional features like narration, stirring cinematic music and delightful animations also contribute to making the story come alive for young children.
"Character animations, flowing rivers, rain, lightning, magic and cinematic music bring the story to life," said company founder Charlie Jackson. "The 3D technology makes the app state-of-the-art, but what's most important is that youngsters are being highly entertained by it."
