Last November I had the pleasure of first reviewing the Beauty and the Beast: Storybook Deluxe. I praised it for being the kind of high-quality app that you would expect from Disney and for giving us a way to celebrate the enchanting and engaging story of how Beauty finds true love in the Beast.
The recent update to this wonderful app has added a new dimension with animations direct from the film and a series of special effects that will amaze you.

The same great features exist, with activities, coloring pages and puzzles that serve to supplement the storyline and give your chi

ld the chance to learn a few things while spending time with their favorite Disney characters.
I think I still love the ability to sing along to songs from the movie best, because my daughter just loves music. But the eleven added animations really served to further supplement the story in a way that will bring the book to life almost like a mini-version of the film itself –only with this version, your child can participate!

What I liked: Animations from the film will be familiar for many children which will help them to relate to the story and increase their interest and investment in the app itself.
What I didn’t like: For those of us who have already been enjoying this app on a regular basis, it would be nice to have a quick-link to the new features so we can share them more directly with our child.
To buy or not to buy: If you weren’t persuaded to grab this app before there are even fewer reasons to resist now. In addition to the quality app that they began with, this update demonstrates their commitment to continued quality and further enhancements which should give you confidence in their products.

LostWinds for iPad, originally a 2008 WiiWare release for the Nintendo Wii, is now available on mobile platforms. Despite the game’s appearance, music and otherwise gorgeous presentation, it appears to be more successful for the Wii than the iPad – primarily in terms of how difficult the controls are on the mobile version.

Just days before Apple's recent educational announcement, one toymaker was busily demonstrating the AppCrayon classroom stylus to a conference of California's Kindergarten teachers. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and the verdict was clear. Teachers want a stylus. This was not entirely surprising for the folks at DANO Toys who designed the AppCrayon with input from professional educators and beta-tested it in classrooms across the globe for almost a year."By pairing a stylus with letter-writing, drawing, note-taking and other apps, DANO Toys has found a way to meld the new, forward-th

MacWorld|iWorld officially kicked off today, and there were over 80 iOS apps highlighted in the Mobile Apps Showcase. We found our app of the day in the showcase, and it’s FavorIt from 2x6Apps. The app is geared towards app discovery by connecting you with your friends’ favorite apps. Rather than providing the most liked apps from random people or App Store activity, FavorIt focuses on your favorite friends. There are some people who’s opinion you trust, and their app picks are definitely intriguing to you.

ite Facebook friends and favorite apps. The app is as simple as selecting your five favorite apps, and all of your friends doing the same thing. Then you get to see your closest friends’ selections, and download them yourself to see if they become your favorites. It’s effortless to swap out apps, though it would be nice to see more choices beyond five. Also, the app only focuses on Facebook Connect, and could use the same type of friend integration with Twitter and contacts.
As it stands, more people use Facebook than anything else, and now your friends just need to download the app along with you to take full advantage of FavorIt. FavorIt is free, but it just focuses on iPhone apps at this point.
