What was the initial inspiration for your app?

15 years ago I visited India as a backpacker. It took me three days to fall in love with this country and its culture. The people, the markets, the vivid colors, the smells, the tastes, the mixture of order and chaos that co-exist in India where all is so different from everything I new before and yet so comfortable, warm and familiar.

I also got lucky and fell in love with a young backpacker who is now my husband. Since then, both of us have returned to India repeatedly. “The magnificent traveling palace” draft was first written on a small notepad (before the Smartphone and tablet era) during a long train ride in northern India.

6 years ago, after my first son was born I wanted to introduce him with the wonders of India and at same time introduce to him the varieties of cultures and societies in the world. When the iPad was first introduced I understood this was the prefect platform for sharing the experience I was hoping the “magnificent traveling palace” would be like.

What is your favorite aspect of your app?

My favorite aspects of the app are the small things that create a full multi-sensory experience (a bit like the experience one goes through when visiting India). The authentic chai seller voice, an original Indian announcer voice on a train speaker, a morning mantra, special sitar sounds, a traditional Indian dessert recipe, and amazing 3D illustrations by Rakesh Nanda which provide the young readers with this magical and enchanting adventure.

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

“The Magnificent Travelling Palace” is a storybook for the whole family. While reading and playing with the app, we encourage beginners and more advanced readers to form and retain a positive literacy experience. Moreover, young kids will enjoy a world filled with colors, music, exciting interactions, and movie like animations. The three reading modes make the app appropriate for all ages.  The train is leaving so jump aboard! Sincerely yours ~ Shoham D.
