Spider-Man AR Book for iPad & iPhone: Add augmented reality to a read-aloud photo book.

The Spider-man movie series gets rebooted this week with a new cast and a different take of the character’s history. Young early readers who might find the movie itself a bit too intense might enjoy Disney’s $2.99…

It features photos from the upcoming movie and a story line that retells the Spider-man origin that is mostly faithful to the 1962 Amazing Fantasy comicbook version. The treat for kids and adults alike is the Augmented Reality (AR) mini-activities that puts the iPad user literally in the picture of the mini-game. The app is compatible with the iPhone 4 & 4S as well as the iPad 2 and the 3rd generation iPad.

FYI: If you are familiar with Spider-man’s history, the story in this app-book does not provide spoilers for the film itself since it only takes you up to an earlier point in the movie.
