    New Interactive Book - Wild Fables! FREE download, and more inside!

    Hey everyone! My wife and I are indie iOS devs, and I'd like to let you all know about our 6th app - Wild Fables!

    Wild Fables is a new spin on the classic Aesop Fables - where you and your kid get to play along with every page! You can take the roles of the animals throughout the stories, and move them around the screen with physics-based interactions.

    Video: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJ0XcLMVxpQ[/ame]

    iTunes: Wild Fables for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    The app is FREE and comes with one fable. More are available as in-app purchases.

    Once you download the app, tap the Info button, tap Redeem, and enter this code to unlock another extra fable (good for 1st 10 to use): ipadforums

    Note: Some users (mostly those in foreign countries) are experiencing a crash problem on startup. We've made a confirmed bugfix and have submitted for expedited review, but in the meantime a quick workaround is to go to airport mode before starting app.

    Btw the target audience of this app is parents who are reading to kids, so the parent can read and the kid can play along :]

    Hope you (or your kids) enjoy!

    Hey,

    I don't have my iPad yet (I'll be getting it tomorrow) but I downloaded it onto my iPhone and I absolutely loved it! I Can't wait to read it on my iPad to my young cousin

    I will be using the redeem code tomorrow when I get my iPad to get the extra fable (I hope it's still valid by then!). Also, how much does every extra fable cost?

    Hi Charlotte,

    Thank you for the kind words re: Wild Fables! I'm really glad you like it and hope that your little cousin does too :]

    I'm planning on turning off any remaining promo codes on Monday, but I saw your PM and if you get your iPad later than that, PM me and we'll work something out.

    Additional fables cost $1.99 btw.

    Regards,

    --Ray Wenderlich

    Great Job

    Hi, I think you've really done a great job on this, I wondered if I could ask you a bit about the process of bringing this to life and to the iBookstore.
    I'm working on publishing a book for the iPad and there are quite a few things that I'm not all that certain about.

    Hi! I wondered whether you created this on your own or went to one of the services that develop iBooks for you. And if you did do it yourself I wondered which softwares you used. I love the animation and interactivity you have, and I'd like to do it on my book too, although at this point I'm just experimenting in exporting in from InDesign and getting it to flow on the iPad.

    @Ezra: We created this on our own - my wife did the illustrations, my sister-in-law did the story, and I did the programming. We used the Cocos2D and Box2D frameworks as part of the project.

    Hope this helps and best of luck with your book!

    Thanks, I'm not familiar with Cocos2D and Box2D but it sounds like something worth exploring. At this point I just want to get it to the iBookstore using InDesign, and later I may work on interactivity too. I haven't tested my book on an iPad yet, but I hope it'll work. Laying it out in InDesign is straightforward, except that from what I've found on guides for Epub files, they all referred more to text books, and said that it has to all be one text flow with images incorporated into it, while my book is all images with text on them, so I'm just trying to place them as flat images on InDesign pages and hope it'll work.
