Amazing Train 3D is one of the best free iPad story apps that I have seen in a long time. Set in India, two children called Rejeev and Lalita explore the wonders of the ‘Magnificent Train’. The story is beautifully animated and interactive as readers are prompted to touch, tilt, slide and move objects or characters. The app also offers explanations about Indian foods such as chapati, masala chai and semolina dessert. On the home page students can meet the cast. Each cast member is rotated on the screen as a description of the character is read. Soon the app will cost $2.99. However, even if the app wasn’t free, I would still recommend it and I would buy the app.
