I’m jumping up and down for joy because we’ve found the most delightful iPad apps imaginable and my kids are just loving them! We’re sure yours will too so let’s find out what all the excitement is about.
First up is the astonishing app The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore which is receiving worldwide acclaim as we speak. A beautiful story devoted to the great life love of books, it started out as an award-winning short film which was then adapted for portable devices such as the iPad and iPhone.
The interactive features blend seamlessly with the narrative, supported by rich illustrations which surprise and dazzle with their beauty. It’s the first book app to make the number one position for apps in the iTunes store and it’s a well-deserved achievement.
To see this app in action see the video; purchase The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore in iTunes for $5.49.
I must say how utterly delighted I am to find a superb-quality app which uses Australian accents. While international accents are a given in almost any media we purchase here in Australia, Scott’s Submarine is a breath of fresh air. I can’t recommend this stunning app highly enough for its beautiful graphics, lovely story and a host of interactive features.

Plic Ploc Wiz is one of the most visually-appealing free apps in existence. With ten unique illustrations to play around with, kids can move the shapes about, change their colours, compose their own, save them and email them to friends.
It’s a great app for chilling out on a rainy day, making their own animals, cities and people with shapes. Plic Ploc Wiz is absolutely charming and a must-have in the free iPad app world – download from iTunes.
