Tulika's iPad Apps and Other Goodies

Our friends from Fliplog have more surprises for your kiddies. After creating a few iPad applications with our books, they've gone on to create wonderful iPad/iPhone applications for Tulika Books too.
Ekki Dokki is a bilingual book in Hindi and English. It is based on an endearing Marathi folktale about two sisters. Ekkesvali has one hair on her head; Dhonkesvali has two and thinks she’s great. What happens to them when they meet an old woman who lives alone in a clearing right in the middle of the forest? This folktale takes on a special joyousness with Ranjan De's stylised representations, full of interesting details.
Thanks to a conference I attended recently, I managed to see this book on Brij's (from Fliplog) iPad. And it was awesome! What was interesting was the 'bilingual page-by-page audio flip'. The audio recorded by Tulika Books is fantastic too.

Other features of this application include :

- Switch between Hindi and English from any page using animation transition.
- Comes with read-along recordings in two languages(English and Hindi).
- Record your own voice for read-along.
- Playback in your own voice or pre-recorded voice. Switch at any time.
- Dual mode page flip - swipe for older readers and flip help for younger readers.
- Jump to any page using page gallery.
- Auto flip automatically turns to next page when playback for the page finishes.

You can check out this application here. You can also learn more about Fliplog, join them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter by clicking on the above links.
