Oceanhouse Media Apps

I was sent a really timely opportunity to review a couple of apps for my Droid2.

Oceanhouse Media turns children's books into apps! It was timely because the two books I was able to review were:

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas


The Cat in the Hat

There are 3 options when "reading" the story.
  1. It can auto play and just go thru the story
  2. Read it to you
  3. Read it yourself
The graphics are perfect. There are instructions on how to interact with each of the pages. You can touch objects on the page and the app will tell you what they are: "grinch", "tree", "Who-ville", etc. The sound effects are really good, too.

Also, if you leave the application for any reason, when you go back to read it again, you have the option of resuming where you left off or starting over. When you "turn" the pages, you actually hear swishing of the page.

You can stay up-t0-date with Oceanhouse Media's releases by signing up for their newsletter, following on Twitter, and liking them on Facebook.

Oceanhouse Media has over 140 apps, including 7 Christmas titles for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Androids. Some titles you can choose from:

  • Tacky the Penguin
  • The Berenstain Bears
  • Spookley the Square Pumpkin
  • Little Critter
Here's a link to view their current FREE apps!

I'd like to thank Oceanhouse Media for the opportunity to temporarily review the apps on my Droid2. The opinions expressed are my own and never influenced by the company.
