Jump into the mind of Paul Klee - the Swiss-German artist who mixed different art styles. While the interactive design is mid-quality, the content is excellent, which makes sense given the source.

There are six nicely animated versions of his paintings including Landscape with Yellow Birds, Dream Town, Castle and Sun, Twittering Machine, and the puppets that Klee created for his son out of recycled materials. Each has a simple activity.

Features include the ability to toggle between English and Italian. There are no third-party advertising or in-app purchases.

Updates (9j/20/2016)

The new version will include first of all the inclusion of three additional languages: French, German and Spanish, joining Italian and English.

1) We made the little red balloon more prominent and visible to the user to suggest or remind him/her of the presence of the navigation option and additional contents;

2) There is easier and more immediate access to the control of the voice-over option, suggesting that we could add the possibility to control it by simply tapping on the written text: we implemented this change as well.
