As a child, some of my favorite books were the little Beatrix Potter books about the wonderful animal world of Peter Rabbit, Jeremy Fisher, the tailor mice, and more. Whenever I see those original books at the library, I’m immediately reminded of sitting by my Mom as a little guy and reading those tales. Beatrix Potter’s books have a timeless quality to them, just like the original Pooh book included with iBooks for free.
Sideways Apps has brought several of Beatrix Potter’s books to life on iOS, first with Peter Rabbit: Buddy Edition and most recently with The Tale of Jeremy Fisher. Each of these turn the original text and beautiful artwork into an interactive experience. They also include the innovative Buddy Reader technology that lets you read the book to your child from anywhere. Let’s explore the Jeremy Fisher app to see how the Buddy Reader works and the direction this tech could take dedicated eBook apps.

Today we’re reviewing both the iPad and iPhone version of Kindle, and drawing some in-depth comparisons to Apple’s latest offering in the form of iBooks.
I must confess that I don’t have a Kindle or read eBooks on my laptop, but I was thinking the other day about downloading a few eBooks on my iPhone. After a little research, I found myself fairly impressed at the range of options out there!
