Millie & The Lost Key is part of series of book apps about a dog named Millie. The first one, Meet Millie, is free – so try it out before purchasing the rest. Millie is a dog on an wacky mission, a quest to find the key to endless bacon. This journey is ostensibly a doggie walk through Central Park.
