One thought on “Google Robert Louis Stevenson Logo Prompts iPhone App”

  1. While I think the app you referenced is really great if you want to just read the book, I must say there's a brand new one today that allows you to completely experience it with a modern 3D feel built into the original classic images.

    To create Treasure Island I got to really embrace the book because we were able to restore images from antique copies of Treasure Island with permission from the University of MN Children’s Literature Archives. I don't know if I'll get my kids to play authors, but the images are now viewed through a completely modern 3D Pop-up that they can control, and I hope it along with the amazing writing of Robert Louis Stevenson will get them engaged.
