Goodnight Moon

Does it get any more classic than this? Developer Loud Crow -- which has brought the works of Sandra Boynton, Beatrix Potter and even Charles Schulz's Charlie Brown to Android -- now has brought us the timeless kids book, "Goodnight Moon."

It's done in the usual Loud Crow fashion. The app can read the book aloud, word for word. Tap a word, and it's sounded out. Or you can choose to read to yourself. As you make your way through the story, you can use a magnifying glass to explore the great green room, and get a closer look at the telephone. And the red balloon. And the picture of the cow jumping over the moon. And there are plenty of animations to keep kids interested. Or, parents who love to reminisce. 

If you still need more, in-app purchases will unlock letter and number features in the app. Be sure to take a look at the app after you buy it. It works fine on tablets, but not on my Nexus 4. We've got some demo video after the break.

Android Kids App: Goodnight Moon


In app purchases on an app aimed at kids - So Wrong

I been stung once this week for £14:00 already by an unauthorized in app purchase

Go into the settings turn the dam thing off ;-)

Why are in-app purchases in kids apps even considered to be acceptable? What do you think the reaction would be if Furby occasionally used your home phone to make international long distance calls? Or if the cash register for a Barbie beauty salon toy could charge parents' bank account? How about a MarioKart game that includes toll roads that charge your PayPal account unless you avoid them? Maybe the neighborhood ice-cream truck could just give kids Popsicles, and send the bill to the kids address a month later...
