App description: *Children's Technology Review - Editor's Choice*

"This is the first app I have seen that turned my iPod Touch into a toy (...) There are no points, no competition, just good clean fun." - Geek Dad, Wired Magazine

"The graphics are crisp and strikingly real your kids will delight in being the navigators of their very own helicopter adventures." - Jeana Lee Tahnk, Parenting.com

Need a ride? Call Helicopter Taxi and well come and pick you up! Let your kids fly around their bedroom while getting calls from Seor Fox and his friends that need help to get home. Helicopter Taxi uses the camera on your iPhone so that it looks like its really flying next to you!

* A DIGITAL TOY FOR KIDS AGE 3 AND ABOVE *

FEATURES
3D helicopter that lets you view it from all angles!
- Augmented Reality Effect - the helicopter is in the room with you!
Five characters to pick up and drop off!
Fun and cute voices for pilots and passengers!
Superb retina display graphics!
Kid-friendly interface!
Works with both iPhone and iPod Touch!
No third-party advertising
No in-app purchases

DEVICE REQUIREMENTS
* Helicopter Taxi runs best on iPhone 3GS and newer devices. Please note that the camera effect will not be used on iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G (same for iPod Touch) as the hardware isn't able to show it. We also recommend using a case to give kids a better grip of the device.*

HOW TO PLAY
- Move the iPhone to make the helicopter fly!
- Rotate the iPhone to see all different angles - turn it upright to see the pilots Rita and Skip!
- Place the iPhone on any flat surface to land and pick up new characters!
- Fly between five different locations!

* Please be careful when playing and walking with the device at the same time! *

Helicopter Taxi is a digital toy that allows your kids to be a pilot for a day without leaving the room! Fly the 3D helicopter until you get a call with a mission. Put the iPhone down on a flat surface and the helicopter picks up a new passenger and then takes off to the next destination! Fun voices and cute characters guide you along the way until its time to fly home and rest for the day.

Helicopter Taxi uses the camera which creates the effect that the helicopter actually is flying in the room with you (see the screenshots below!). Join the fun and help Seor Fox, Minda, Rooster, T-Bot and Dr. Clifton to find their way home!

We have gotten some positive feedback on this game and our thoughts around the concept of digital toys:

Bruce Sterling (Wired) - http://www.wired.com/beyond_the_beyo...licopter-taxi/

Matt Jones (BERG London) - http://berglondon.com/blog/2011/03/1...al-playthings/

Parenting Magazine also named Helicopter Taxi and our iPad game Toca Tea Party 'Screen play apps of the week' - http://www.parenting.com/blogs/scree...er-taxi?cid=tw

If you're a parent and looking for something different, they might be interesting for you and your kids.
