Apps: Chug Patrol, Kindle 3.9.2, Tweetbot 2.8.4 + Xbox Music

Chug Patrol: Ready to Rescue ($5) is a new Chuggington interactive pop-up book from StoryToys Entertainment. Based on the licensed Chuggington characters, this flip-style book is lightly animated on its regular pages, but features lots of voice narration and audio samples to keep kids excited. Interactive roadside rescue/task games break up the flat pages, and kids will find it easy to play the activities due to simple tap action commands. Young fans of Chuggington will find this book charming, and the artwork is all in extremely high resolution.

Amazon’s Kindle (free) app has updated to 3.9.2. According to Amazon, it is a required update before upgrading to iOS 7. The update fixes an issue with iOS 7 that could cause customers to have to re-register and re-download books which were already purchased from Amazon.

Tweetbot from Tapbots has been updated to version 2.8.4 for both iPhone and iPad (each $3). The popular Twitter client has now improved reliability of uploading photos while on cellular networks. It’s an important fix, considering the issues the app had with sharing photos from the road at times. Other bug fixes are also included in the update.
