[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Moving Tales, the producers of the innovative and best-selling 3D animated storybook app, 'The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross', released their third App in the Classic World Tales series, "This Too Shall Pass", for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. "Along with Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross' and 'The Unwanted Guest', 'This Too Shall Pass' completes a trilogy of wisdom tales," said Moving Tales' founder Matthew Talbot-Kelly. "This new tale follows a kind-hearted King who has the blues. Depicting the King's delicate transformation, this poignant story is universal in its resonance."
Following up on their genre defining 'Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross' and 'The Unwanted Guest' animated storytelling apps, 'This Too Shall Pass' is inspired from Persian, Buddhist and Jewish sources. Now listed as New & Noteworthy in the USA and Canada iTunes store, 'This Too Shall Pass' tells a tale of a noble but disenchanted King searching for some lasting truth.
'This Too Shall Pass', features film-caliber, sophisticated 3D animation and text, original music and evocative filmic sound effects. The App's dynamic typographic layouts can be animated using the device's accelerometer; the app incorporates randomly selected alternate perspectives to ensure no two viewings are alike; the app uses Cover Flow-like navigation and includes compelling, poetic voice-over narratives and text in English, Spanish and French. In addition, the user can record their own voice reading the story to be played back with the sound effects and music. This Too Shall Pass also ships with ability to freeze the accelerometer's effects on the text and includes direct access to the iTunes App store.
"Working with the same creative team as our other tales, we have created some memorable new characters to add to our repertoire. In addition to the usual features of our previous apps, we have included a couple of new functions." said Matthew Talbot-Kelly. "The three tales are interconnected in terms of content, style, location, and presentation. For example, amongst other things, this new tale reveals the origin of the bell tower that appears in the Pedlar Lady's dreams."
