Mr. Morris Lessmore iPad App

It is no secret to anyone that I have sold my soul to Apple.

No secret to my friends.  Or to my family.  Or to strangers on the street.  (“There’s that glassy eyed guy with the Apple Bag.”)  Not even to the Apple Store employees who relentlessly keep coming outside the blinding glass facade to slap me upside the head for putting my face against the windows on Product Launch Days.  Luckily I don’t own a lawn chair or someday I might really cross that line and find myself behind the police barricade, waiting all night for something that I don’t really need and could just as easily order online and have delivered to my nice warm house.  But they don’t serve Apple Koolaid at my house.  And I drink it like I live in a Texas compound with a couple of uni-brow wives.

After years of holding out on that first purchase, just in case this whole internet thing didn’t pan out, the iPod Touch tempted me and I never looked back.  I’m actually thinking of switching to Fruit of the Loom undies strictly because the waistband tab has an big Apple on it.  I know, right?

But regardless of your own personal Apple Threat Level, this new iPad book app is truly A-MAZ-ING.  If you own an iPad, you need to have this on your screen, if for no reason other than to see how far this format has come in such a short time, and how the possibilities for the future seem endless.

If you don’t own an iPad, find someone who does, toss them a fiver, and check out William Joyce’s The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.  Technically I guess it’s considered a children’s book, but if you have any interest in computer graphics & art, writing, tech or anything freakin’ cool, then you will be impressed.  If you have kids, even better.  If you don’t have kids, but can find one in a non-creepy way, then they will love it as well.  But it’s worth the cheap price and the download even if you kick back on your own couch and just chill.

Originally an award winning silent short film in 2010, the story has been recreated for your touch screen in ways never seen before by this former PIXAR designer and Moonbot Studios.  What starts out as a beautifully illustrated book morphs before your eyes into an animated movie that you control with your finger tip.  There are so many things to do and see on this app.  It’s just DanCool.
