Following the latest news from Barnes & Noble in which the giant book seller announced that Nook platform controls a quarter of the eBook market, the popular Nook Kids framework that proved very successful on Nook Color jumped the street (and the OS) to Apple iPad.
The application is completely free and allows access to over 12,000 children books supporting a number of interactive features including search, zoom, notes, multiple fonts, etc. Some eBooks take the degree of interaction even deeper with the help of AliveTouch technology which allow kids to interact with their picture books.
Like the initial release on Nook Color, the iPad version of Nook Kids also comes with two free books to help you acquire the taste: Elephant’s Child by Rudyard Kipling and Fun Facts about Pets by Seymour Simon.
As we already mentioned, the application (and the initial two books) are free so there is no reason why you shouldn’t head right away to iTunes store and download it on your iPad. Your children (and your inner child) will have a blast.
That being said, Barnes & Noble jumped ahead Amazon in terms of magazines and interactive eBooks. Currently Amazon Kindle does not allow multimedia content and Amazon does not yet have a multimedia color eReader.
