Disney Digital Book – Tron iPad App Review
It seems like every time I turn around, my i-pad is missing, a pair of 9 year old male hands are very interested in my technology. I wish those same hands, and the eyes and the brain that go with it, were as interested in homework! The third grade “required reading” is an endless struggle, every morning and every afternoon. No matter how many “cool” book series you purchase; the interest quickly diminishes with all the other more exciting things to do; and your hard earned money sits on a shelf collecting dust and complaints, and not necessarily in that order.
When I downloaded the TRON Legacy app onto my i-pad, I had an “aha” moment. Why not take the most dreaded and the most desired and combine them? AHA, the TRON app by Disney Digital Books. With everything a little boy could desire: cool graphics, comic book style layout and multimedia including movie clips, slideshows and music; it was a match made in heaven. It was a joy to see the theoretical pages turning, without hearing the moaning and groaning and the inevitable “am I done yet?” In fact, all I heard was silence, and every now and then some music.
I looked through the app, but honestly, I’m as interested in TRON as a girl can be; as a step-mother I was THRILLED to see my son wanting to read and gladly “flipping” through the pages.
I really think that Disney is onto something here; the Disney Digital books are innovative, interesting and inexpensive. At $3.99 per app, it’s hard to say no; but it would be a lot easier to say “Yes!” at $.99. I’m interested to see how these digital books continue to develop and innovate reading for our kids. Disney stories have always touched our hearts, and now they can touch our kids; at a technologically advanced level.
