Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. Today we are featuring an audio story app the entire family can enjoy. It’s called Tales2Go and its mission is to spark kids’ imaginations by utilizing cutting edge technology to bring back the simple pleasures of storytelling to everyday life. Tales2Go makes audio stories accessible, portable, and affordably priced – just in time for summer travel!
What is your app about? Tales2Go is a kids’ audio story service that gives moms and dads instant, on-demand and unlimited access to over a thousand stories that stream to their iPhone, iTouch or iPad. Stories range from fairytales and classics (e.g., Curious George Rides a Bike) to popular series and characters (e.g., Diary of a Wimpy Kid, American Girl, and How to Train Your Dragon). Story length spans from a couple of minutes to 6 hours, and selections include a variety of choices for kids ages 3 to pre-teen.
Why is it special? Kids of all ages love listening to a good story, well told by a professional narrator or storyteller. Audio stories spark a kids’ imagination in ways that screen-based media cannot, and build listening comprehension and vocabulary. Highlights of Tales2Go include:
- It’s storytime, anytime. On-the-go, in the car, at the doctor’s office, during meal or bath time at home, or even before bed (after having read to your kids).
- It’s entertaining. Featuring the best in kids’ audio stories — from trusted audio publishers and dozens of award-winning storytellers – Tales2Go will make your kids giggle, laugh, think and ask questions. And, before long, they’ll be asking for more.
- It’s affordably priced. Tales2Go is great value at $24.99 for an annual subscription (or roughly $2.00 per month) – saving you time, effort and money vs. purchasing multiple story CDs or downloads. And with Tales2Go, there are no one-off purchases to get the next story.
What’s in it for me? A FREE SUMMER SUBSCRIPTION FOR FIRST TIME USERS!
