An Interactive Book App For Children: The Snow Fox

Want to read bedtime stories as a special holiday gift for your children? Read “The Snow Fox”, then. 

Animated digital app books are just become very popular among parents, because it gives a chance to spend a qualified amount of time with their kids. That’s why, a US based digital agency called AKQA has created The Snow Fox which puts SiriKit method to work in a new and charming way.

The Snow Fox is a short story that uses SiriKit method to allow users to control the app while using their voice. For instance, as the child reads the book, the visuals inside the app comes to life and the story flows in its usual order.

The app personalizes the story with putting the child’s name on the cover page. It also creates a video memory of the experience, putting the child’s voice with the animated scenes. When the story finishes, the children can share their own narrated versions with their family and friends. This combines both read and play, so the children learns and have fun at a time. Also, it is an essential combination for the ones who are learning to read.

Let’s watch the introductory video of the app, here:

 

Creative Director of AKQA, Johnny Budden, says,

Children are eager to tell their own stories. Their minds are ready. The interest is there. We just knew we had to find a way to create a story that can capture the attention of little ones during a crucial time in their lives when skills and interests are developed.

We looked for a visual style that felt friendly and relatable to both parents and children, but also one that married nicely with the technology we were using. When we realized we could turn voice into a reading gesture, things got very interesting. We tried to reimagine a book with no pages, just a continuous adventure brought to life with your own voice.
