With simple tap-and-swipe navigation and the ability to share stories with friends and family via social networks and email, Unread is an excellent app for exploring interests and cultivating a love for reading. The app’s heavy focus on reading and the built-in social features make it come recommended for kids ages 12 and up.
Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.
Unread is a great way for kids to learn about their own tastes and interests, as the first thing you do when using the app is curate your very own selection of reading sources from around the web. Whether its an interest in wildlife, a love of sports or a fascination with science, kids get to hand-pick the RSS feeds that deliver content they prefer, right to the app. Reading with Unread can also be a great way for exploring new interests, as there are innumerable websites parents can use to introduce their kids to new music, ideas or stories. The sharing functions also add a social element to reading, giving kids a chance to share what they've read and incentivize them to discuss the topics with their peers.
Getting kids excited to read can be difficult, but some times, changing up the type of reading material can help. Unread provides an easy-to-use method of creating a wealth of reading content that speaks directly to each different user, as the selected RSS feeds will provide content on topics they've chosen. A story about skateboarding will seem like less of a task than academic reading for kids interested in the topic. Use Unread to compliment your child's academic reading exercises and show that reading really can be fun and entertaining.
