Sometimes, conventional solution is not the right solution and the unconventional one seems the wrong one. For example, suppose it’s an ancient period and a war is about to start between two groups. But just at the right time, it is found that a misunderstanding has been created by a third group to take advantage of both sides. Now, the act of bravery is not to defeat the other side knowing that they are not actually the enemies they’re looking for. Brave is that person who goes to those raging soldiers equipped with anger and weapons and asks them to stop the war and tells them what the reality is. Of course, you’re not sure whether they’ll listen to you and chances are great that they might kill you. Stories like this one are great and we have another such great story for children. Let’s hear it out!


I am talking about the latest iOS app called Akio the Brave that has been developed by Wokana. The app is compatible with iPad only and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS.

The app describes a story about the journey of a little cup in the sea. The story is inspired by a Japanese legend. At first, it might seem to be something unorthodox because “how can a cup be brave” would be someone’s obvious reaction. But the tale is very interesting and intriguing. The story is a combination of different phases which when all put together create a beautiful overall effect. On your way, you meet different creatures and find out how they interact with that cup which is obviously like an alien to them. They’ve never seen it before and there’s always suspense in the plot on what’s going to happen next.


As beautiful as the picture is, so pleasing is the frame. No doubt the story is beautiful, but it’s the way it has been told and pictured that makes it even better and stay in one’s heart forever. There are some amazing animations and the hand-made creatures are cute and lovely. This story is best for your young children. Just hand them the iPad and let them enjoy as long as the story ends. Not only that there is a beautiful lesson for your children, but the complete experience of watching a big fish diving upside-down in the sea is breathtaking. In fact, this story is for everyone. If you’ve watched Life of Pie, then this story is something like that. There are some beautiful visuals of nature and the end is surprising!


Overall, all I can say that you should definitely buy this app. It comes for just $0.99 in the App Store and there are some more stories expected to come soon. So I think you can’t find a better deal for your children. What are you waiting for then?

Pros: amazing graphics; beautiful and interesting story; unique creatures.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
