The app itself is a wonderful re invention on the encyclopaedia, taking all the data from the Doctor’s adventures since 2005 it pools it into an interactive wonder, accessible for all and original to say the least!
Rather than just having an eBook, the app takes things one step further to provide a unique reading experience for the buyer. The unofficial David Tennant fan site, DT Forum summed up their view on the latest piece of Doctor Who media:
“This application does a great job of translating the book onto the iPad media. It does have some great features but it is rather expensive in comparison to the price of other iPad apps. But I enjoyed it and hope that BBC Books continues their adventures into interactive e-books.”
A word of warning though, the app may encounter some problems on the new iOS5 operating system that Apple recently released but the updated software (iOS5.0.1) seems to have sorted the glitches out.
Head over to the website now where you can see the full review and also a promotional video showing you just what you may be missing out on!
