In this innovate storybook app, parents can record themselves reading their children’s favorite books out loud, making it easy for developing readers to follow along. The app is free to download, and users create storybooks by capturing the cover and pages via their device’s camera, and capturing video of themselves reading the book, page by page. Users can create the first two books for free, and purchase unlimited access to the app for 2.99. Once a recorded book is created, it can be shared with family and friends, allowing even distance friends and relatives to connect with their loved ones. The app requires adult assistance, as book readings must be created, but enjoying the resulting reading is suitable for kids ages 2 and up.
