‘X is for X-Ray, by Touchpress, is an extraordinary new app that takes full advantage of what is possible when you combine creative and innovative developers with the ever evolving world of technology! Upon first look, we said, “WOW, WOW & WOW again!” This one adjective resounded throughout, along with “OMG, AMAZING, and COOL,” as we explored this incredibly unique app.’
‘It might be aimed for younger children, as the book is yet another A to Z version of the same 26 letters. This time though, the concept is mind-boggling as each object is x-rayed to reveal the underlying skeleton. As teachers we couldn’t wait to share this app with students and see if they would agree that we had something very special here. They agreed... and the first word uttered was once again, “WOW”.’
‘The beauty of the app is its attention to detail. Almost every object has some unique effect, like the way the car engine’s pistons turn when you rotate it in x-ray mode.’
‘This app is the learning bomb! It makes your kids curious about everything they see’
‘My 6yr old has been amazed by x-rays since he saw an MRI of his brain. He really enjoyed seeing the insides of so many everyday objects. Highly, highly recommended app :)’
‘One of the most fun and innovative interactive books I have seen for the iPad. I really enjoyed this book, and so did the children I shared it with.’
