Oceanhouse Media has partnered with more than a dozen publishers to convert nearly 130 books into enjoyable and convenient omBook apps. Of those, 33, or a little over 25 percent, are Dr. Seuss titles. Due to that significant percentage and the author's legendary status, Oceanhouse has created the Dr. Seuss Bookshelf app. As the name so clearly implies, the Dr. Seuss Bookshelf app is the easiest way to access, manage, and expand your Dr. Seuss omBooks, including the Beginner Book Collections and The Cat in the Hat Learning Library series, as well as apps, such as Dr. Seuss Band. The Dr. Seuss Bookshelf app has two different bookshelf sizes, depending on the iDevice. There's a dual-shelf design for iPhone and a four shelf configuration for iPad. Both layouts incorporate a shelf containing the entire Oceanhouse Media catalog of Seuss-related apps and another displaying all Seuss apps currently installed on the iDevice. For easier browsing, the catalog can be filtered by app type, app price, and recommended reader age. The extra shelves on iPad are for showcasing "Featured" apps in the Oceanhouse catalog, Seuss-related, of course, along with an area to place favorites from your own Seuss library. Dr. Seuss Bookshelf is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 4.3 or later, and available in the App Store as a free download.
