Last month, Oceanhouse Media launched three new officially licensed iPhone Apps based on the beloved classic children’s stories by Dr. Seuss. The Cat in the Hat and Dr. Seuss’s ABC are now available as interactive eBooks in the App Store. Children will have the option to read the stories themselves or have them narrated through professional narrations, highlighted picture/word associations and custom background audio.
A unique and fun photo application, the Dr. Seuss Camera – The Cat in the Hat Edition, will allow users to create fun photo cards using the iPhone’s built-in camera or Photo Library. Kids will be able to pose with characters or choose to become the Cat in the Hat, the playful Thing 1 or Thing 2, or even Sally or her brother. Cards can be personalized with comical and colorful stamps, borders and classic Seussian text. Cat in the Hat Cards can be e-mailed to friends and family or saved to the Photo Library.
Available for both the iPhone and iPod Touch, these apps will also be available for the iPad. “We are thrilled about Apple’s recent announcement of the iPad,” said Michel Kripalani, President of Oceanhouse Media. “We are looking forward to having most of our 75+ apps available for the iPad, starting with our Dr. Seuss products. We believe that the iPad will be a revolutionary device for children’s literature and learning.”
In December of 2009, Oceanhouse Media released its first three Dr. Seuss titles including Grinchmas!, the #1 Kids Game on the App Store for the holiday season (& just announced at Macworld 2010 as an Honorable Mention in the 2009 Best App Ever Awards), How the Grinch Stole Christmas! eBook and Dr. Seuss Camera – The Grinch Edition.
