Released in March, iPoe re-introduced some of Edgar Allan Poe’s powerful classics in a wonderfully illustrated interactive e-book form. Today, Play Creatividad uncovered volume two of the collection, bringing a few more well-known dark tales to a new generation.
Filled with eerie background music, beautifully drawn pages and user interface elements, interactive story components, and animations, iPoe 2 immerses you in Edgar’s works just like the original app.
As you read, what appears to be typical illustrations liven some pages with visual depictions. However, unlike traditional books, many of these images can be manipulated. Move photos around, reveal hidden objects, and much more with a tap or swipe.
This second volume contains The Black Cat and Hop-Frog with Poe’s most popular tale, The Raven, arriving soon via an update. If that weren’t enough, Play Creatividad is including bonus material, The Edgar Allan Poe Route.
The app and stories are provided in English, Spanish or French, and are recommended for teens and older.
iPoe 2 – The Interactive and Illustrated Edgar Allan Poe Collection is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone 3GS, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, and newer running iOS 5.1 or later, and available in the App Store at the introductory price of $1.99.
