Shortlisted Best Children's App 2012: Hugless Douglas
What's a bear to do when all he wants is a little tender loving cuddle?
Douglas is an affable big bear who is in need of a hug, but he just find a hug that satisfies his need. Well, if you've ever tried to hug a tree, you can see that he's perhaps not looking in the right place. Adapted from David Melling’s 2010 book, this app is very faithful to the picture book, with the addition of a read-to-me version playfully delivered by Alan Davies, with each word highlighted to aid early readers understand the text.
In addition to the story, there are two extras: a “hug gallery,” in which various images can be emailed, and a rather addictie game of “Noughts and Crosses”, featuring Douglas and a Sheep, suitable for one or two players, that could prove a very useful distraction when travelling.
