"Its been 170 years since Poes chilling first-person narrative was first published in an ill-fated Boston-based magazine called The Pioneer. But this marvelously restrained iPad app might just be the ultimate platform for conveying the claustrophobic creepiness inherent in Poes gothic tale of a killer betrayed by his own insanity."- KIRKUS (starred review)The Tell-Tale Heart follows up the success of Rocket Chair Media's debut app, The Metamorphosis for iPad, as an interactive, illustrated and pageless version of Edgar Allan Poe's classic short story.Highlighting its iconic imagery, but not literalizing its actionwith the complete, original text embedded throughout this presentation of a man's journey through an evaluation of his own madness invites a reader to experience narrative with a richness and tactility only possible through multimedia touch screens. To unfold the story, readers gesture through an expansive illustrated environment. By pinching, swiping and rotating in all directions, The Tell-Tale Heart animates in both space and time adding new layers of meaningful metaphoric content to Poe's world.
