A new interactive book from Moonbot Studios–led by former Pixar designer–is the most stunning, beautifully crafted app released for the iPad to date. Called ‘The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,’ the app is available for $4.99 through Apple’s App Store, and takes users through video clips, sounds, animations, interactive games, and amusement. The style of the clip is very reminiscent of Pixar’s ‘Up,’ and is rendered beautifully to make the iPad, as Steve Jobs would say, seem ‘magical.’
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is an experience that immerses your senses and is fantastically executed, and is perhaps among the best iOS app created to date. Given the videos, animations, sounds and sights, and interactive nature of the app, Moonbot Studios helps to prove Steve Jobs’ position that Flash on mobile may not be needed.
