Letters for Santa: iPhone Written App Review
Letters for Santa is not only a delightful eBook featuring a set of young reindeer in sled pulling training sure to make your children light up with holiday spirit, it’s also a wonderful way to find out what your little ones want for Christmas this year. This charming app from Drawinginc Limited carries all the magic of the first snow of the season. We’re sure you’ll love Letters for Santa, but just in case you’d like to know more, we have a full iPad app review just for you. Think of it as our way of saying happy holidays.
First and foremost, Letters for Santa is an interactive eBook, told in a style that’s completely new to us. Not only can children (and adults!) enjoy the tale, each page actually has two interactive scenes. Simply rotating the iPad from landscape to portrait reveals additional scenes, fun extras and close ups. That might mean a little extra work, twisting the iPad to reveal all, but it’s so worth it.
In the first few pages of the app there is a helpful how-to screen that will make sure your family gets the most out of Letters to Santa. That’s where you’ll enter your child’s name, age and your country of origin for a special surprise at the end of the story and a little reassurance that Santa won’t be skipping your house this year.
There is also a great page where the kiddos can write their very own letters to Santa. This page includes an input for your email address, which we wish the app asked for earlier for added surprise, but it’s still well done. This is done through a touch interface, so even the littlest members of your family will be able to show St. Nick what they’d like this year.
All those features add up to a delightful eBook app that’s a big hit with the kids. Yes, the app is missing some of the elements we look for in plain eBook apps, but we hardly missed them thanks to all the holiday fun.
Layout & Design:
Beautiful graphics and a simple user interface help make this darling Christmas tale shine. It really is something special. High quality design work and special touches like interactive red buttons keep the app exciting for kids of all ages. Us grown up folks are not immune to the charms, and we bet you’ll catch yourself twisting the iPad to make sure you’ve seen every single special extra the app has to offer.
At just $.99 (or 0,79 € if you’re one of our EU readers) Letters for Santa is a brilliant holiday app that you won’t want to resist. So, whether you’ve been naughty or nice, we highly recommend adding Letters for Santa to your iPad this holiday season.
Letters for Santa iPhone app requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
