Winken, Blinken and Nod

The iPad app Winken, Blinken and Nob is a very interesting app. Yes it's another storybook app but this one does (or tries) something new. First of all the pictures on this app look great. They really did a good job with the artwork to go along with the story. They also tried something really interesting, using voice recognition. The words on the page light up when you say it or is suppose to. The idea is great but sadly it doesn't work. I have tried several times to get past the first page and I never can get the app to work. The major failure of this app is this is the only way to read the book. It would be one thing if that feature didn't work but you could still turn the page and read it like other books but you can't. Since I can't get the app to understand what I am saying, I can't get off the first page of the book. It's a great idea but simply doesn't work so I would stay away from this app until they fix it.
