Although it’ll still be another couple of days before anyone can actually experience them on the new iPad from Apple, the iPad apps floodgates opened today and Disney quickly debuted and previewed a slew of iPad exclusives from all across the Walt Disney Company family.
Disney Digital Books has offered up a couple of its interactive storybooks in the form of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, even offering the former for free. The Toy Story 2 Read-Along is $8.99 but that also includes a one month’s subscription to the online service where hundreds of interactive Disney books are already online with more added monthly. In addition to the Toy Story iPad apps, Disney Publishing will soon be offering apps featuring stories from The Princess and the Frog, Phineas and Ferb, Winnie the Pooh and — of course — Toy Story 3.
Not just a pixelized book, the iPad apps include all sorts of novel features such as:
- Optional professionally recorded narration
- Record your own narration
- Video clips, songs and sound effects
- Virtual multi-finger-painting
Below is a video offering a demo of the Toy Story Read-Along apps for the iPad as well as some sample screenshots from the app.
