The Dream by Swipea is a brand new storybook/educational app for children, designed to teach kids about foreign (in particular Middle-Eastern) culture.
If you're a parent looking for a rich, child-friendly storybook, this app will be the right choice. The Dream offers a variety of interactive puzzles, games, and other activities for your child to play with, and spend time. The built-in storytelling mode also offers hours of fun, informative, and magical story time.
The story itself is very pleasant and dreamy, much in the way of the classical 1001 Nights stories. The sharp and beautiful graphics provide a sufficient graphical backdrop to the story itself.
The layout and navigation are quite intuitive, and easy to use. This is probably the best free children's story app we've seen so far! The fact that it offers education about foreign cultures, fun puzzles, loads of extra activities, and important lessons about tolerance and moral development makes this app a must-have for any parent!
A moderately-priced pay version of the app is also available, for USD 2.99. Additional features and minigames, and DIY papercraft ensure even more fun times for the iPad-owning parent's child.
Overall, this app deserves 4.5/5 stars. A nice concept with a strong execution, this app is a sure winner.
