Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Love it but sure it has glitches.
Think the app is great and a brilliant way to get kids reading and excited about doing so, but the app kept giving my daughter the option to press home when the story was being read out to her. Which is confusing at times because she kept pressing home button when the option was given, even before the next option making her have to re-start the story.

Thank you for this amazing Storytime app!
An amazing Storytime/book app! There is nothing else like this that I have seen! My little boy loves going through the story books, and doing the interactive parts too. The design and usability is so brilliantly thought through and executed.
We think the library functionality is great! It is lovely that he is able to return books to the library and add new ones to his book. A brilliant app!! Thank you!
Could do with an update
Great app, my kids love furchester towers, the games get harder as you go, however if you leave it starts back at easy again and there is no option to save your progress and so they have lost interest as they have to go through all the easy ones again. This could be so much better if you could pick up where you left off or save your progression in some way.
