Today's Good Free App of the Day is the first GFAOTD suggestion from our reviewer Jill. It's an awesome, really unique ebook that's full of hip animals, jazz and cello music. Cabby Cat & the Missing Cello is only free until Monday!
The app had me when I read that the missing cello belonged to world-famous pig cellist Mo-Mo Ya.
** Please note ** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **
A New York story. Three bluesy hound dogs. A sneaky music critic. A famous musician who lost his cello. And a cabby’s race to find it in time for the big concert at Carnegie Hall.
Created by “2Dads~In~Brooklyn,” Cabby Cat is an immersive musical Picture Book set in New York City. The sophisticated interface allows 3D zooming and rotation on many pages, character interaction and gaming elements, while offering the experience of leafing through a traditional children’s storybook. Music plays a central role in Cabby Cat & the Missing Cello, providing a virtual movie soundtrack.
Join Cabby Cat on this musical adventure inspired by true events–sort of.
