StoryChimes: a Fun and Educationally Interactive Reading Experience
By Tech Talk for Moms, Submitted October 21, 2009
I am so thrilled with all of the choices for iPhone/iPod touch stories on the iTunes store. It is wonderful to see iPhone app developers create educational applications. My kids love reading the books on my iPhone and on their iPod Touches. Recently my kids and I tried StoryChimes narrated story Little Red Riding Hood. The story is very nicely illustrated with soothing colors on pages that my children can turn.
StoryChimes, created by Siena Entertainment, are affordable iPhone/iPod touch children stories which are an alternative to video games, movies, and TV shows. The stories feature original illustrations, music, character voices, and sound effects are brought to life. These stories are designed to provide a 3-D interactive and tactile experience for both the child and parent. StoryChimes encourages the user to “turn” pages with their fingers, read along with the story, or auto-play and listen to the narration by professional actors.
Story Chimes has exciting titles like The Red Shoes, Noah’s Moon, Benjamin’s Walk in the Woods, When Words Dream, Mother Goose Fairytales Vol 1 and 2 (both free), and a The Queen Bee. We also have another free app, StoryChimes Match Game, a simple and fun match game with animal characters from one of our upcoming books, ABC Animals.
Story Chimes has recently been listed as a Staff Pick at iTunes for one of their stories, When Words Dream, and they are currently #50 on the Top Paid Book apps. The stories can be found on the iTunes store or visit storychimes.com for more information.
