The Pirates! Band of Misfits is the new upcoming 3-D stop motion animated film that will be hitting theaters later this month. The film, based on the first two books from Gideon Defoe’s The Pirates! series, now has a new story time app that children will love to read before and after seeing the movie.
iStoryTime is launching the The Pirates! Band of Misfits storybook app for Apple Devices for an introductory price of only $.99 cents. It will got back up to #3.99 soon, so get it while you can at the great introductory offer.
The app includes several fun opportunities along with storybook itself. One feature, called “Piratize Yourself” will allow your children to utilize the face tracking features of iOS 5 to make themselves look like a pirate in real time, snap a photo and share with their friends. They can also become “Pirate of the Year!” by collection the eight hidden prop items they need through out the app.
The story follows the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side, and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz to the much coveted “Pirate Of The Year Award.”
This is a great app to encourage children to read. Parents can either read the lovable story with their children or allow them to forage the high seas alone with the “read to myself” function.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits storybook app will be released for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Remember it is only going to be $.99 cents for a short time before it returns to its regular price of $3.99 so get it now and just in time before the film hits theaters.
