    This sounds like a great app! I have read a few articles and reviews about it and I’d like to get it this Christmas because I’m going to get the iPad 2 and hopefully an iPhone too. I wish you would make it available on Android too because I know that a lot of people have them and I’m sure they’d love to see Danny on their devices too!

    This is really awesome to hear. I’m going to order this now! Also, when is Danny the Dragon going to be turned into a cartoon? 😀

    It’s a whole new world now huh with the popularity of apps increasing. I remember just a few years ago someone was telling me that it was going to be very popular and I was like, “What’s the use of having an app on your phone when you could have it on your computer or laptop?” But now after having kids I know how extremely useful it is, like when you’re driving or in line at the grocery store, to hand them your iPhone with a cool app like Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy to keep them entertained!!!

    I am wondering if you’ll be translating your app to into Greek and Spanish as well because that would be really cool! Of course, the sign language would stay the same but maybe the English reading could be dubbed over or have subtitles. I bet that would be a very popular app!

    This is great news! I read one of your Facebook posts on reducing app time in favor of lap time and I wholeheartedly agree! I love that even though you have launched a successful app, you are still at heart a 3D picture book author. Let’s hope these picture books don’t became extinct! I just love the touch, the weight, and the experience of picture books. Books have been around for a very, very long time. So scary to imagine a future without them–yikes!

    I know what we’re getting for Christmas! Oh, heck…I’ll just get it now!
