Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
First there were the 24 best-selling books for children aged 2 to 6 which took the children’s book charts by storm. Next there were the superb interactive Apple and Android apps launched late last year that have already been featured on Newswatch on The History Channel and Bio Channel.
Now Fergus Ferry is available as a free podcast on the iTunes store so even more young and old fans alike can listen as the brave little tugboat and his friends enjoy their adventures in and around Seaport Harbor.
A new episode will be uploaded every week so families can keep coming back to listen week by week or download more together for those long trips and family holidays. The stories can be listened to along with the books to help children recognize and pronounce some of the trickier words or just enjoyed in their own right as stand-alone stories.
The response to the apps have been phenomenal with over 20,000 people downloading the Fergus Ferry App for iOS alone and it’s not just young fans who are following the Ferry - the app has received a top score of five stars from the Educational App Store while the books average 4.5 stars from over 71 reviewers on Amazon.com!

The app features all of the stories in a stunning, interactive ebook form and has a fun game where the player can control Fergus and steer him around Seaport Harbour, rescuing swimmers, scaring off sharks and avoiding crashes! There is also an interactive harbour to explore and find out more about Fergus’ friends and their home.
The app comes in two modes - a free mode which contains four of the most popular stories and one level of the game or a full, paid-for, mode which includes all 24 stories and the full version of the game.
The full version of the app will be free for iOS devices while the Android version will be available for only 99 cents until March 31st 2014. After this date, both versions will revert to their regular price of $89 so take advantage of this great offer today!
The Fergus Ferry app is available now both in the iTunes store for Apple devices like the iPad and iPhone or the Google Play Store for Android devices.
