Children's Pirate Book for iPad Available On The App Store! | The Day I Became A Pirate

We’re There!

The Day I Became A Pirate - An Interactive Book App for Kids - TaleSpring

The Day I Became A Pirate is officially available today in the Apple iTunes App Store.

I’m pretty excited to have this milestone behind us. It has been a long-time coming and a lot of work. More than I anticipated, but well worth the effort!

I’d also like to publicly thank Zach Clough for his amazing contribution to the book. Zach’s illustrations really bring the book alive with a lot of color and fun. With so many opportunities to sacrifice the quality of the book for a quicker finish, I appreciate Zach’s unwavering persistence and enthusiastic temperament. Things simply got better and better as we continued, with Zach putting more effort into every successive page.

Thank you, Zach!

We set out to create a simple book that we both thought would wrap up in a month or two. To our mutual surprise we weathered through nearly 18 months of coordinating, designing, animating and tweaking. The experience was incredible and I am excited to apply what have learned to future books (five of which are already written and planned).

If you have an iPad or an iPhone, please take a moment to download the pirate book and read it to your kids. Let them play with it for a while, and then let me know what you think; I would love to hear from you (in the comments, below).

And if you have a moment, please leave a review in the App Store; it’s a great way to show your support. I appreciate all you can do.
