We believe that the iPad will be a revolutionary device for children’s literature and learning and are honored to provide the Dr. Seuss titles to help educate young children all over the world.
Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
Oceanhouse Media, Inc. is announcing the release of four high definition apps for the new Apple iPad. Three of the top selling Dr. Seuss children’s eBook apps, The Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss’s ABC and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, are now available as FREE updates in iPad form for current iPhone or iPod Touch customers. In addition, Bowls HD, a Tibetan Singing Bowl application designed specifically for the iPad, has been released.
In just six weeks since release, the Dr. Seuss apps The Cat in the Hat and Dr. Seuss’s ABC have received critical acclaim from USA Today, CNET, Business Week, The Huffington Post, Mashable, Wired, and mommy bloggers galore. (http://www.oceanhousemedia.com/press/) Both apps reached the Top-20 overall paid app chart, where Dr. Seuss’s ABC held the #4 spot for more than one week.
Customers who have already purchased a Dr. Seuss eBook for their iPhone or iPod Touch simply need to download the free app update. The high definition iPad version is included! Now on the bigger format of the iPad, children get to experience the artwork and interactivity of Dr. Seuss in close to full, printed book size. These eBooks include innovative features that promote reading in young children, such as highlighted words, picture / word associations, professional narrations and custom background audio. And the new Auto Play feature means even the youngest of kids can experience the eBooks without interruption.
Oceanhouse Media’s very first app for the iPhone, Bowls, is a blissful, meditative experience in which the user plays seven different Tibetan bowls, each on a different screen. Now, in the iPad version of Bowls HD, users see all seven bowls plus accompanying instruments on a single screen, making it far easier to create their own musical masterpieces.
“We are thrilled to have these four apps available for the iPad at launch, with many more iPad apps following soon.” said Michel Kripalani, President of Oceanhouse Media. “We believe that the iPad will be a revolutionary device for children’s literature and learning and are honored to provide the Dr. Seuss titles to help educate young children all over the world.”

About Dr. Seuss Enterprise, L.P.
Dr. Seuss Enterprises was founded in 1993 following the death of Theodor S. Geisel, Dr. Seuss, to conserve and nurture the works of Dr. Seuss by protecting the integrity of the Dr. Seuss books while expanding beyond books into licensed merchandise. The licensing effort is a strategic part of the overall effort to strengthen and protect the relationship consumers have with Dr. Seuss characters. Theodor Geisel said he never wanted to license his characters to anyone who would “round out the edges”. That is one of the guiding philosophies of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
