How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

3.0 out of 5 stars CUTE and Engaging STORYBOOK but HAS SOME FLAWS March 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Excellent HD Graphics, Great Narrator spices up the story and Exciting Sounds create an Entertaining atmosphere. It can be very enjoyable an captivating until you encounter some FLAWS. Sadly, your expectations can get a little deflated when the story gets somewhat confusing for the child.

That Narration often DOES NOT MATCH THE PAGE you are looking at but a different page instead.
Many references are made to story parts that are missing pages so it is confusing.
Evey page has 2 sequences of written story instead of 1 per page - so Child often swipes too early.
It would be more entertaining if had some INTERACTIVE Parts.
High-lighting the words as they are spoken would help young readers to follow it better.

Overall: It is a Good storybook but NOT A GREAT ONE. Obviously made to drum up BUSINESS for the new CROODS MOVIE. That is OK. Not so great when it confuses the children because they left out half of the pictures that correspond to the story narrative. That amounts to a cheap trick that is not appreciated by many of us. Unfortunately, It feels more like a MOVIE TRAILER than a real STORY.

5.0 out of 5 stars The modern bedtime story! March 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Oftentimes, movie tie-ins like this can turn out bad if not horrible. In the quest to make a quick buck, the marketing muscle can flex out quite a bit of useless garbage. Not in this case, luckily. This is just a good story with good pictures and good voice acting telling a very good children's tale. While I wouldn't blame you if you were skeptical of things like this, I still must recommend that you get this story for your children especially while it is the free app of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Amazing March 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
I grew up literally with Walt Disney; meaning, I've always watched, read and devoured anything with the Disney name connected to it. I started loving art and began copying Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. So,The Croods Movie Storybook is no exception. I gave it a five star rating even though, while watching and reading the text, I felt there was something missing in the plot or storyline. I just can't put my finger on it right now. Maybe if I read it several times, I can pinpoint it, but Hey! I'm an adult reviewer. If I were a kid again, and someone gave me this book, I'd love it forever and guard it with my life. Everyone with kids over one year old should get this book pronto, Exposing very young children to the words and pictures with their eyes and ears shoots up their learning curve and they will someday thank you for it..

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks amazing, fun March 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a great storybook, it has background sounds, such as bears screaming, different characters voices, and superb pictures. They look 3D at times. Definitely what you would expect from DreamWorks. The story lasts 5-10 minutes, and can be read to the children, or they can choose to read it themselves. The fact that there is only one story, plus a lack of any mini-games, keeps it from being a 5 star, and I have a hard time recommending it for $2.99 (maybe it would be worth it after your children watch the movie and love it though!), but as the free app of the day it is an excellent addition. It makes me want to watch the movie!

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh
Maybe I didn't read the description well enough, but I seemed to think this would be more interactive. It's just a picture book that reads itself, but not well. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Could've been a lot better.
It's cute, and it's good enough to entertain a small child, but there is a lot left to be desired.
First, there is no interactivity. Read more
