In celebration of the DVD release Castle Builders launches a free Hotel Transylvania movie iPad app alongside Hotel Transylvania's BooClips Deluxe Movie App, an interactive Storybook and Cookbook app based on Sony Pictures Animation’s family comedy

Hotel Transylvania Movie Deluxe App for the iPad, iPhone and Windows 8
PRLog - Jan. 1, 2013 - NEW YORK -- Technology, art, and humor come together within the Hotel Transylvania Movie app, available today from Castle Builders (IL) and Sony Pictures Consumer Products for the iPad, iPhone, Windows 8, Nook, enhanced iBooks, Mac and the PC (via www.BooClips.com). This stunning digital children's book application takes full advantage of Castle Builders’ technology to share the story of Sony Pictures Animation’s new animated family comedy Hotel Transylvania. The movie leaps off the pages in this storybook using rich animations, video clips from the original movie, vivid images and games.  The Hotel Transylvania DVD will be released in the US on January 14, 2013.

The free Hotel Transylvania Movie iPad app offers movie clips, synced narration, interactive animations and voiceover recording. In celebration of the DVD release, the Hotel Transylvania BooClips™ Movie Deluxe iPad app is offered for 0.99 USD (for a limited time only), with an entirely different interface and a wide array of fantastic features such as animated word-for-word narration, advanced voice-over recording, nearly 20 minutes of 24 HD videos from the movie, and a 3D interface. The app’s touch capabilities include interactive animations, translation to different languages, easy navigation between pages, an animated magnifying glass, a dynamic bookmark, a puzzle game, coloring book, and an interactive cookbook.

The app’s interactive cookbook features dessert recipes in an innovative way; recipes are read out loud in sync with the text and are accompanied with cooking-related videos from the movie. Kitchen safety tips make the recipes accessible, fun, and easy to make.  In accessing the cookbook’s unique features, users may find an ingredients list that is easily converted from European measurements into American, a serving converter that calculates the quantities required for various number of servings, a cooking timer, and a sharing function that allows users to share favorite recipes on Facebook, Twitter or through email. Moreover, the app pops up a random recipe by shaking the iPad and features a recording function for notes and personalized recipes.

“Castle Builders is proud to partner with Sony Pictures Consumer Products for the development of this remarkable app. We are confident that with Castle Builders’ technology and Sony Pictures Animation’s exceptional content, the Hotel Transylvania storybook apps would enhance the reading experience for children all over the world, in a fun and engaging way,” said Gil Abramovich, CEO, Castle Builders (IL).

Hotel Transylvania is Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters — Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more — to celebrate his daughter Mavis’ 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to these infamous friends is no problem — but his world could come crashing down when a human stumbles on the hotel for the first time and befriends Mavis. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.  Produced by Michelle Murdocca.  Screenplay by Peter Baynham and Robert Smigel.  Story by Todd Durham and Daniel Hageman & Kevin Hageman.

The free app launches today on the App Store:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hotel-transylvania-movie-...
