THIS APP REQUIRES IN-APP PURCHASE TO GET FULL ACCESS OF THE STORY AND THE GAMES
How did Kwik help?
The Kwik plugin allowed our illustrators and designers without any prior coding or app experience to rapidly design and convert 35 pages of our book “Piggly Wiggly” into an app.
Besides giving them the visual design environment in the familiar Photoshop setting, it also allowed our developers to examine and learn from the code generated by Kwik, without that our developers (and designers) would have taken LONGER to develop the “book” app.
What are your favorite features?
Way too many to list, besides the essential features of what makes a “book” app like page turning, sound, animation, karaoke text highlighting etc. The best feature was making IN-APP purchases so EASY!
Simply click on a button and fill in a simple form… DONE.
Any tips and tricks to share?
Try and use sprite sheets where possible and remember: wherever there is SOUND there should also be ANIMATION.
Piggly Wiggly and The Great Woods is really well made, including a good story, several animations, professional narration and illustration, casual games and an innovative (not tested) feature that allows parents to record their own narration and send to others via web. However, it requires in-app purchase to read the full 35 pages of the story (the original, free, download only unlocks 5 pages) and get access to the full list of games and cool features. Personally, I don’t like in-app purchase (or ads) in children’s books. I hate to imagine the frustration of a young reader, who is enjoying the app and needs to stop because he/she cannot purchase the “final product”. This is the only reason this app does not go to my “all time favorite, made with Kwik, list”. If in-app purchase is not a blocker for you, this is really a great addition to any children’s book digital library.
