Apple Outs iPad App for Kids: Bats! Furry Fliers of the Night

A new app for kids by Apple, named: Bats! Furry Fliers of the Night, makes it obvious that Cupertino based iPad maker does not want to leave any corner of imagination unexplored for wooing its users.

This new app introduced by the tech giant shares a shelf of the App Store, with a handful of other booklike apps. The crafting of this new app is more inclined towards rendering the kids with a trip to the world of forests. You click on the button and take a ride - quite similar to a museum exhibit in many ways.

The newly dished out app truly has the ability to revolutionize the world of 3D book apps. The price of this app is also prudently marked at $4.99 in the App Store. Apple has tried to revamp the market of booklike apps by inculcating a feeling of reincarnation of apps world in the newly released Bats!: Furry Fliers of the Night (opens in new tab).

Facilitated with 3D linear navigation the app manages to create a delightful experience when kids take a ride through a 3D forest. The app size is kept minimal deliberately, so as to allow users to save on precious storage.

One point highlighted by critics is that the app contains some terrifying features which kids may not find conducive to watch. Otherwise the nonfiction author of children's Science books Mary Kay Carson deserves a round of applause for her extensive research-help extended towards Apple in designing the app.
