One of the best things about using an iPad is the great apps that we can run on it. There are excellent apps for just about any purpose you can think of. Better still, there are lots of great free apps for the iPad. Our Best Free iPad App of the Week posts celebrate these apps.
This week’s pick is Hobbit Movies, the official companion app for the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – the upcoming Peter Jackson directed movie that continues his series bringing Tolkien classics to the big screen. This is the first of a trilogy of films from Jackson adapting Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
Here’s a little background via its App Store page:
Explore Middle-Earth and experience the epic adventure of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” with the official iOS app. Learn about Bilbo Baggins’ quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor and the band of thirteen dwarves that join him and Gandalf the Grey as they embark across the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain through exclusive artwork, interactive character galleries, and production videos presented by director Peter Jackson.
View a selection of animated character portraits, travel through a detailed map of Middle-earth and explore the stunning narrative imagery of “The Scroll” artwork to immerse yourself in the world of Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves, Orcs, deadly Wargs, giant Spiders and a fearsome Dragon.
