Comme indiqué en titre, on a ici affaire à l'histoire du prochain Dreamworks, The croods. L'histoire est assez longue et on peut soit l'écouter soit la lire à son rythme. Les options renvoient uniquement vers le store pour acheter d'autres livres. Point de version française ce qui est tout de même gênant pour un store français.
Oftentimes, movie tie-ins like this can turn out bad if not horrible. In the quest to make a quick buck, the marketing muscle can flex out quite a bit of useless garbage. Not in this case, luckily. This is just a good story with good pictures and good voice acting telling a very good children's tale. While I wouldn't blame you if you were skeptical of things like this, I still must recommend that you get this story for your children especially while it is the free app of the day.

This is a great storybook, it has background sounds, such as bears screaming, different characters voices, and superb pictures. They look 3D at times. Definitely what you would expect from DreamWorks. The story lasts 5-10 minutes, and can be read to the children, or they can choose to read it themselves. The fact that there is only one story, plus a lack of any mini-games, keeps it from being a 5 star, and I have a hard time recommending it for $2.99 (maybe it would be worth it after your children watch the movie and love it though!), but as the free app of the day it is an excellent addition. It makes me want to watch the movie! (Kindle Fire HD)

Excellent HD Graphics, Great Narrator spices up the story and Exciting Sounds create an Entertaining atmosphere. It can be very enjoyable an captivating until you encounter some FLAWS. Sadly, your expectations can get a little deflated when the story gets somewhat confusing for the child.
That Narration often DOES NOT MATCH THE PAGE you are looking at but a different page instead. Many references are made to story parts that are missing pages so it is confusing. Evey page has 2 sequences of written story instead of 1 per page - so Child often swipes too early. It would be more entertaining if had some INTERACTIVE Parts. High-lighting the words as they are spoken would help young readers to follow it better.
Overall: It is a Good storybook but NOT A GREAT ONE. Obviously made to drum up BUSINESS for the new CROODS MOVIE. That is OK. Not so great when it confuses the children because they left out half of the pictures that correspond to the story narrative. That amounts to a cheap trick that is not appreciated by many of us. Unfortunately, It feels more like a MOVIE TRAILER than a real STORY.

Nice marketing gimmick, poorly done: -1 star...cannot install to external memory: -2 stars...unnecessary permissions: -1 star!!! Good story, that will be reinstalled for my boys when/if install is allowed on external memory.

Since the movie on which this e-book is based is 3-D animation, the images are terrific. As expected. The story is decently long, and has fun sound effects. However, it does suffer from a couple of issues, and is not interactive, unfortunately. And while you can resume, there is no other way of navigation other than swiping, so you can't go to a favorite part quickly; it is more VHS than DVD in this regard.
The Issues: The movie, however, consists of thousands of such images, yet the narration of this book uses the same image for TWO narrated text pages. This breaks convention of children's books by not changing the image with the text. This also causes significant confusion because either the story is not showing an important text/verbal element and/or is revealing too much detail too quickly. An example of the latter is actually given in the screenshots for the app: the fifth screenshot shows a monster chasing the family, but the text that describes this event is on the textual page FOLLOWING the screenshot textual page. The text that goes with the image reads, "As the Croods stared in wonder at the beautiful new world, a bear owl rushed towards them." Where's the image of the wreckage told by the text in the screenshot? The image of bear owl is incongruent with the text, while at the same time gives away the surprise on the next page.
The app is buggy, too. During Auto Play on my tablet, more than once did the text on the screen jump to the second screen of text while the spoken narration read the missing text. How confusing! Naturally, that behavior is just a matter of fixing a bug, which I expect will happen quickly, thus rendering this particular issue moot. Until it is, however, you should be aware that this occurs.
Lost Opportunity: Because this was based on a 3-D movie, and is more or less a tie-in promotional product, for the price I'd liked to have seen tilt-and-pan 3D effect in the images; that is, as you tilt and pan the tablet or phone, the image changes slightly as if you were looking at a 3D image. Many physics-based live wallpapers use this, and it would have been almost trivial to include in the book. While not necessary, it would have given the app an amazing element that few have yet seen (hint, hint, studios and e-book makers...).
On its own, I don't think this is worth $2.99. As an accompanying add-on to the movie where a child can relive parts of the story, then it may well be worth it. Personally, I'd expect more from a vaguely camouflaged marketing tool that you pay for.
