This is my very first published app for kids and I put all my love in it Check out the photo mode, it's pretty cool.
All aboard Scott's submarine for an extraordinary journey under the sea! Embark with Scott, his cat Jazz and their friend Aiko and discover sea life wonders and the mysteries of the deep blue sea.
An original story written for digital devices, rich of interactive content, with wonderful artwork by Matt Roussel, internationally acclaimed 3D illustrator.
Two reading levels
The story offers two levels of reading: one using simple words, for very young children and a second one with a more advanced vocabulary and a longer text.
Fun yet educational - Photo mode
An exclusive functionality brings an educational note to the app: with a simple tap on the screen, you can take pictures of your favorite scenes, which will be stored in the photo album. If a marine animal is visible on a shot, you will get facts about this animal, with educative text and a live animal photo!
The story can be read to you by native speakers, but you can deactivate this option if you want to tell it yourself. You can also disable text display, ambient sounds and music.

I also agree, this is why there're two different levels of reading =)
The image on the left is for kids aged 2 to 3 years old, whereas the one on the right is for kids 4 years old and plus.
The text is displayed --and read-- according to the level set by the parent in the options.
