Scroll Motion and Day Night Studios have teamed up to offer Super Hero enthusiasts a series of great apps. DC Super Friends - Haunted Heroes is one of the books. In our story, the local children think that an old house is haunted and the DC Super Friends are called in to take a look. The book captivates the audience as the story is told in an entertaining manner. A number of the pages include audio enhancement and hidden activities that allow you to collect DC Super Points. These features maintain the reader’s attention and interest throughout the book. At the end of the story, you are able to redeem your DC Super Points for a reward. In addition to the story there are a number of built in activities. These allow the user to have access to puzzles, stickers and colouring pages related to the book.

Things I like about the app:
  • The text highlights as the story is read.
  • There is an option to record someone reading the story for a younger user. Perhaps a grandparent could to this to create special memories for a little one.
  • All of the additional activities  keep the users coming back time and time again.

Things I would like to see changed in future updates:

  • At times, the app was slow to respond.
