London, England – Independent publisher Nosy Crow is pleased to announce that its Cinderella App has won iLounge.com’s Best iPad Kids App of the Year Award. The award will be published in iLounge.com’s 2012 iPhone + iPod Buyers’ Guide.
“Of all the kids’ applications we’ve tested over the past year for iPads, Nosy Crow’s Cinderella was most certainly the best,” says Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief of iLounge. “The story dates back centuries, but Nosy Crow’s version feels like something entirely new, bringing the classic characters to life inside funny, surprisingly interactive 3-D environments. The charming voice work alone is good enough to justify the purchase, and as you listen, you’ll discover a dozen little details that all work together to make Cinderella memorably excellent.”
The iLounge.com Best of the Year awards recognize the products and developers that most improved the way users enjoy their iPods, iPhones, and iPads. The awards are included in The 2012 iPhone iPod Buyers’ Guide which is available to download for free.
“We are thrilled to have won this prestigious award from iLounge,” says Deb Gaffin, Digital Product and Marketing Director of Nosy Crow. “With Cinderella we’ve taken advantage of the iPad’s technical capabilities to deepen children’s engagement with the story, allowing them to explore plot and characters and to take an active role in how the fairy tale unfolds.”
Cinderella is an interactive picture book app recommended for children ages 3 and up. It features beautiful illustrations, sophisticated animation, original music and hundreds of interactive touch points. In Cinderella, readers make the magic happen. By tapping, swiping, dragging and dropping, they can help Cinderella clean the kitchen, choose her dress for the ball, and gather items in the garden that the Fairy Godmother transforms into the coach and horses. Readers using an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with a front-facing camera will see their faces automatically appear in the story itself, reflected in the “magic mirrors” in Cinderella’s house.
