Christmas Tale II HD

Another TabTale Interactive App - But Beware the Ads

This is another very interactive title from TabTale, not unlike their first app, out since 2010 called simply Christmas Tale. This title has simple text on each page that makes up less of a story and more of a narrated activity book. Readers are asked to name Santa's reindeer (just tap to hear the names), decorate a tree, build a snowman, stuff Santa down a chimney, open gifts and sing along to a nice variety of holiday tunes. It is an amazing array of well-produced enhancements for just 6 pages. Unfortunately, this is also a free app that includes a banner ad at the bottom, although an in-app purchase can turn this off. The ads & text can get in the way of the interactive elements a bit, although the text can be easily removed with a tap. If you do not take advantage of the in-app ad-removal option, you may want to consider putting the device in airplane mode to prevent travel outside the app by little ones.

This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
