Tangled is one of my favorite recent Disney movies and I’ve enjoyed the Tangled: Storybook Deluxe app. The app presents the full story from the film as a read along storybook. The illustrations are wonderful and the narration is very well done. The app also provides the option of recording your own narrated version of the story. You can choose to simply listen to the story with the Follow Along mode or listen and find activities while in Read and Explore. If you choose Read and Explore you will find puzzles and coloring pages throughout the pages. There is also a floating lantern game to play. All of the activities can be found (separate from the story) in the Play section of the app.
Many illustrations have hidden surprises that will come to life when you tap on the screen. You will hear character’s voices from the film and there are several video clips. I found everything to be very well polished and a great adaptation of the film. There’s plenty to enjoy here, whether you’ve seen Tangled a hundred times or none at all.
