[prMac.com] Freienbach Village, Switzerland - Innovative mobile e-book developer JustKidsApps today is pleased to announce the release of the third and last in its Heidi storybook series for the iPad. In Heidi Part III, Heidi's journey ends as her wheelchair-bound friend Klara comes visiting her at her grandfather's quiet mountain and learns to walk again.
JustKidsApps has adapted Johanna Spyri's classic children's tale in a way that stays true to its essence with clear and simple language and vivid illustrations to engage and teach early readers. It's a perfect solution for parents who want their children to experience the story's timeless allure with all of the added benefits and interactive appeal of the iPad's unique digital platform.
The app invites children into Heidi's world with touch-controlled story elements and interactive characters, animals and objects. It includes a narration feature - available in German or English - for beginning readers to follow along with on-screen text or simply sit back and enjoy the story.
Heidi Part I has been embraced by app savvy parents worldwide. It's listed in iTunes' coveted "What's Hot" book categories in both the Swiss and US markets.
