Scott's Submarine
Product Type: 
App

Scott's Submarine, an interactive children's book for iPad and iPhone, tells the story of two children and their cat in an incredible adventure under the sea. It offers two levels of reading: one using simple words for very young children and a second one with a more advanced vocabulary and a longer text.

A unique functionality brings an educational note to the app: with a simple tap on the screen, the child can take pictures of his/her favorite scenes, which will be stored in the photo album built-in the app. If a marine animal is visible on the shot, animal facts will be displayed with an educative text and a real life photo!

Throughout the pages, several games invite the child to identify sea animals and objects found in the images.

The story is read in English, Spanish, French and Japanese by native speakers. The display of text is optional; so are voices, sound effects and ambient music.
