New habit

This was a great find for our homeschooling family.. I can play books to extend school lessons and also great bedtime books which quickly became part of my kids’ nightly story routine.
Even seeing some of our favorites brought to life with various, creative methods of animation is quite an exciting experience for us. My early reader really likes that he can easily follow along with the words as they light up. The content and book choice has not been in the least bit disappointing, there’s some really great books for so many areas of life, brought to life for you! Gotta love it! I got a free trial but I’ll tell you what, this one might be worth paying for after it’s over, and frankly my kids might be very upset to lose this as an option. I can’t let them navigate my kindle reader as freely because they could be lead to books from all over. Vooks is a super safe bet if you need a quick thing to pop on for younger kids, because even if some topics are over their head, they’re never going to be inappropriate for kids. Love it!!! I say 10 stars!

Wonderful for Homeschoolers

My elementary aged kids love this app. I love it also but what else is wonderful is there are activities that go with the animated story books (on their website) so it’s more than just enjoying a good story. There is a large quantity of books with the subscription compared to other apps and services. The quality of the books and animation is stellar. The organization of the books by age, topic and etc make it easy for you to supplement with the theme you are teaching. App runs smoothly and no bugs I have experienced yet. I feel confident in the safety and quality of the materials. You could let your child use this app on their own without worry. I’m especially looking forward to delving into some of the biographies next. 5 well earned stars for Vooks app.

New interface lacks important information

I’ve subscribed to Vooks for over a year and my son loves watching the video books, but the newest update changed the interface completely and I’m extremely disappointed that 1) all of my saved favorites were lost and now I have to re-add everything and more importantly, 2) you have to click into the video in order to see how long it is. If all of the video books were roughly the same amount of time, I wouldn’t care. But when some are 2 minutes and some are 12 minutes long, it makes it hard for me to negotiate with my child around how many he can watch before bed. If he chooses short ones, he can watch 3 or 4 each night. But no way I’d agree to watching 3 or 4 that are 10 minutes each. Unfortunately, you have to click into it, start the video and then stop it to see how long it is. The time bar at the bottom doesn’t even tell you how long it is. So so so frustrating.
