The World Wildlife Fund just released an iPad app that allows users a multi-faceted view of eight species of endangered animals – including giant pandas, tigers, elephants, marine turtles and polar bears. Each species has an engaging “story,” using the unique features of the iPad to help tell it – use the device’s camera to see clearly in “Tiger Vision,” or tilt the screen and hold it still to learn a fact about polar bears keeping still for hours to catch a seal. Each animal’s tale is told in beautiful imagery and effects, even incorporating downloadable origami instructions for kids to make animals of their own.
