Omnitoons feeds you Chinese roots-Yum!
Released Date: Singapore, 10 Aug 2010
Omnitoons introduces its Bite-Size China series on the iPhone/iPad family! The first book, The Book of Songs, collects some of the earliest poems written in China and features them in both the original form and in English translation. It is perfect for anyone looking to understand Chinese culture one bite at a time. More books, from the writings of Sun Tze and other great thinkers, will be progressively uploaded to Apple iTunes in coming months.
Aware of how daunting traditional Chinese literature can be, the poems are carefully selected to make for smooth consumption. These short and sweet poems are organized into 4 broad categories- Love, War, Nature and Royalty- and come accompanied with watercolor paintings. “We went classic Western and put Shakespeare on the iPhone and iPad. Now we go East and put Confucius on the iPhone. Watch this space because we plan to bring you more!” said Karen New, Head Honcho of Omnitoons, confidently about future plans.
