Chasing Fireflies Brings Haiku To The iPad

For readers that are looking to start the New Year off with some classic Japanese poetry, there is an app for that.

App developer Honeybee Labs has a new iPad app available for fans of Haiku poetry called Chasing Fireflies: A Haiku Collection.

The $1.99 app features more than 150 haiku poems by authors including Basho, Buson Kikaku and Issa. It also includes an original score by composer Colin Wambsgans and unlike a print poetry collection, the app’s cover changes every week.

iTunes has more: “Each poem lives within a beautifully evolving background, moving through the cycles of the seasons in perfect harmony.”

This is the first eBook app for Honeybee Labs, whose founders have a history of making video games. The company plans to make more book apps. Here is more from their website: “Now, we’re bringing this experience to eBooks, incorporating multimedia and game design techniques into eBooks that will help define the new frontier of literature.”
