Now that enhanced book apps are becoming more popular, the iPad-only review site,, has decided to expand to cover the best of the Android market for book apps. According to founder, Carisa Kluver, “The best selection for book apps is still on the iPad, but some of the most exceptional enhanced books are now also available for Android devices. If you have an Android phone or tablet, you can now find several dozen great titles to share with kids. We hope our new sites will make it easier for parents, educators and school librarians to find the best book apps, regardless of the device they have on hand.”


Among the titles available now on multiple platforms are books from prominent developers like Oceanhouse Media, iStoryTime, Loud Crow, Electric Eggplant and TabTale. These forward-thinking publishers are producing apps available for several different devices, from Android smart-phones to the newest tablets like Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color.

For World Book Day, Read Across America and Dr. Seuss’s Birthday, there’s no barrier now for every tablet and mobile device to play titles like The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs & Ham, Fox in Sox and even Happy Birthday to You! just in time for what would be Theodor Seuss Geisel’s 108th birthday, on March 2nd, 2012.


Celebrate Theo's birthday on any mobile device this year

Other titles available on multiple platforms include the Middle School Confidential series of graphic novels, Dreamworks film-themed books like Shrek & How to Train Your Dragon, plus enhanced pop-ups like Peter Rabbit & Charlie Brown’s Christmas. According to Ms. Kluver, “The selection and variety in the Android market is comparable to where we were about 6-9 months after the iPad first launched and I think the future looks bright for finding even more enhanced book apps on multiple platforms over the next few years. There are finally enough quality titles now available to form a decent digital children’s library on any device.”
