Sure, the narrated storytelling is great in the new Spider-Man Augmented Reality HD Book App ($4.99 for iPad), but it's the extras that make this movie tie-in fun.

Timed with this week's blockbuster 3-D release of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” the app allows the user to follow Spidey's transformation from Peter Parker (that's my rather enthusiastic son testing the feature) to mask-wearing crime fighter. The games also entertain, even if they are as simple as collecting spiders in a jar.
