Alice In Wonderland iPad App Reinvents Reading (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Newspapers, magazines, and book publishers are rushing to develop iPad apps tailored to Apple's new tablet.

Some of these content creators have taken advantage of Apple's new platform better than others, incorporating colorful, interactive, video, and web elements into their e-versions.

Alice for the iPad offers an exciting look at how content could be shifting and evolving with Apple's new platform.

The developers have created the pop-up book of the 21st-century. With this creative update to Alice in Wonderland, users don't just flip the "pages" of the eBook--they're meant to shake it, turn it, twist it, jiggle it, and watch the characters and settings in the book react.

Alice for the iPad's description on iTunes details some of the features:

Tilt your iPad to mke Alice grow big as a house, or shrink to just six inches tall. [...] Throw tarts at the Queen of Hearts - they realistically bounce off her. Witness the Cheshire Cat disappear, and help the Caterpillar smoke his hookah pipe.
