AlphaDigits.com wrote up a great review on The Day I Became A Pirate.
After explaining that book apps for the iPad (and the like) are changing the industry with great content that can be purchased for a buck or two, AphaDigits said this:
“The Day I Became A Pirate is one such book that offers a story with a lot of surprising elements.”
The Captain and crew are thrilled to be recognized for having ‘a lot of surprising elements’. Say that out loud in your Talk Like A Pirate Day voice; it sounds awesome, yarrr.
The review sums up with a nod to our children’s book category, saying…
“With story, puzzles, suspense and clues, this app would really be an entertainment package if you have kids at home.”
-Which is a nice payoff and a great endorsement to our target audience.
The title of the review is Reading is Fun with The Day I Became A Pirate. The book is also featured on their Home Page as a Featured App.
I am glad they liked it!
I was sitting at a business meeting earlier this week when the subject of my latest project came up.
Of course I mentioned The Day I Became A Pirate book app, and was quickly showing it off on my iPad.
A friend who was sitting at the table asked ‘Is it rated Arrrrr?’, prompting big laughs and a need to dust off my bag of favorite Pirate Jokes.
Here they are in no particular order:
- How much does a pirate pay to get his ears pierced?
- How do pirates talk to each other?
- What did the sea say to the Pirate Captain?
- What is a pirate’s favorite letter?
- What does a pirate wear for Halloween?
- Why did the pirate fail his spelling class?
- What happened when Redbeard fell in the Deep Blue Sea?
- How much did the pirate pay for his peg leg and hook?
- When is the best time for a pirate to buy a new ship?
- Do you know any good pirate jokes?
- A buck an ear!
- Aye to aye!
- Nothing, it just waved!
- Most people think it’s the ‘R’rrrr, but really it’s the ‘C’ they love.

- Because he insisted there were seven ‘C’s.
- He got marooned.
- An arm and a leg.
- When it’s on sail.
- …Neither do Ayyye!
I am hearing that many of you are having trouble finding the Start Button on the Cover Page for The Day I Became A Pirate.
The Start button is a little hard to see; it is in the lower right corner of the Cover Page.
I am working on an update that will highlight the Forward button a little more on the starting page. In the meantime, here is a screenshot showing the starting ‘Forward’ button location.
The Start Button is in the lower right corner of the Cover Page. Sorry about that; I am working on a better solution for the next update.
