We just tested out another great new appisode. If you aren't familiar with what an appisode is, it's a cross between an app and an episode of a show. It turns those unanswered question from the TV into an interactive experience your kids will love. The award-winning Nick Jr. series Julius Jr. launched its first-ever interactive appisode based on a full-length TV episode, “Perfect Pirate Day.” Your child gets to join all of their favorite characters for an interactive adventure at The Sea Shelly Islands. With the use of tap, swipe, voice and shake, your child will become immersed in the story while making key decisions to help Julius and friends as they embark on their Perfect Pirate Day!
It has you child use their voice, tap the screen, shake the device and help solve problems throughout the game. You can see some of these things in the video below.
Julius Jr. is an animated preschool series based on the Paul Frank family of characters. The show follows Julius Jr. and friends Worry Bear, Sheree, Clancy, Ping and the recently introduced Chachi, who use equal doses of imagination and inventive spirit to help each other overcome challenges big and small. Together, they build a playhouse out of a simple cardboard box, but when they walk inside, to their surprise and delight, they discover that ordinary objects magically come to life and amazing adventures are just a door away.
The app is now available to download for $2.99 from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
