With Halloween right around the corner, it's a good time for a literary fright night with one of America's foremost writers of spooky fiction .... Edgar Allen Poe. iPoe, a new rendition of the author's classic tales, morphs Poe's original work into an interactive collection of four short stories, including The Tell-tale Heart and The Mask of the Red Death. It is appropriate for older children as well as adults.
Beware...the collection has some pop-ups that startled me, so I would not recommend iPoe for younger readers. Check out the iTunes link and review from AppAdvice below.
And do not read iPoe on a dark, stormy night with the lights out!
