Wow, this actually looks pretty good. I don't have my own children, but other kids use my ipad a couple of times a week. Maybe I will get this for them to try. Any firsthand impressions from other members.

I have one promo code left and I want to make it available to you. However, since there is one code and many of you, I came up with this challenge: whoever guesses in the next 24 hours (by Sunday, 4pm PST) the number closest to the total lines of code that went into creating this interactive book will win the code.

To clarify, the code in question is only the code directly related to the book itself, and not having to do with any of the frameworks or supporting libraries. It does, however, include comments as well as the occasional empty line.

I'll announce the correct answer tomorrow.

I have no clue about coding, so I will guess at 100,000 lines of code (was going to guess one million, but that seems like a lot).

How about 50,000 lines. (Have to say I haven't a clue about coding either...)

If this is on par with Three Little Pigs, it must be impressive indeed !

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

looks great!!, I think 125000 lines of code went into creating it.

I'll take a stab at 200000
