Albert is this week's free app of the week from iTunes. It has a 4.5 star rating based on 620 ratings in iTunes and it's located in the Games category. It's compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and requires iOS 5.0 or later. The drawings
in Albert are created by renowned french Illustrator Chloe Mazio which look stunning on the Retina display. Albert also uses a special holographic effect for extra image immersion. You'll use your entire device when playing Albert including the multi-touch screen, microphone, speaker, accelerator, and speedometer.
At first glance, this looked like a game that was fit for kindergarten kinds, but don't let the cardboard cutout graphics fool you. This is truly a neat application that includes almost 1,000 cardboard cutouts that have been "sliced, glued, photographed and animated by hand. Both kids and their parents love Albert. The main goal is to follow Albert from sunup to sunrise doing various activities including travelling in a hot air balloon, blowing chewing-gum bubbles using your microphone, throwing soap into a bathtub while tilting your device and catching falling stars in the night sky.
