The iClassics Showcase app is a perfect way to take in some of the Classics, all the while increasing literacy while enjoying a couple of timeless tales for free: ‘The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar’ by Edgar Allan Poe and ‘Christmas Ghosts’ by Charles Dickens. I am immeasurably impressed by this app!

– The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar is a short story about a mesmerist who puts a man in a hypnotic state at the moment of death. The story includes Poe’s well-known touch of horror.

– Christmas Ghosts’, by Charles Dickens, gives short little tales of sightings of ghosts. Along with the stories, you will get an idea of what the iClassics apps have to offer.

Touch, if you dare, and discover fun & surprising animated details while each story comes to life, all the while listening to the appropriate accompanying music. This app is a perfect way to get enmeshed in the author’s tale. The artwork alone will en-capture you. Add in the animation, and the story is brought to a whole new level. This app will go a long way in encouraging even the most recalcitrant reader into a love for reading.

Just another brilliant app by iClassics Productions. Enjoy!
