Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of pirates and treasure – was one of the first books that really got me immersed and fascinated when I was a young reader. So I’m happy to see that there’s a 3D audiobook version of it coming to the iPad very soon, courtesy of the folks at Flying Word.
I’ve been taking a sneak peek at one of the final pre-release versions of the Treasure Island audiobook app, and I’ve been quite impressed with it. It’s got striking animations and visual and sound effects, as well an excellent professional voiceover for the narration.
It also has a basic but pleasant interface and some decent little options to make your reading tailored to your preferences. You can change the font and font size, turn the voice narration on and off, and hide or show the text.
Here’s a couple more screencaps:
