- "Tales2Go has had a huge impact on the the K-5 students in my school this year. Listening to books read by storytellers and actors serves as a model for how to read fluently and with expression. Tales2Go has also allowed struggling readers to access higher level texts in their reading classes. Students also improve their sight word vocabulary and comprehension when they listen to an audio book while following along in the print version of the book. Tales2Go has motivated students to read more and has helped students develop positive attitudes about reading." Cathy Potter, School Librarian, Falmouth, ME

Ratings and Reviews
We absolutely love the variety of audiobooks through T2G. We have used it often. Developers need to fix the bookmark feature though. You can set the bookmark but as soon as the app is closed, it forgets your bookmark! We take a screenshot every time we stop listening in order to find our place the next time we listen. They also need to add a skip-ahead-30-seconds button in addition to the back button they have.
Two stars for content only
Variety of stories is good but the app itself is clunky and awful. I keep expecting a fix to come out because the issues seem very obvious to me and others have complained as well but we’ve had this app for 5 months now and none of the major issues have been addressed. An example is, if I want to explore all the stories that start with the letter S, I have to scroll down the first page, wait for it to load. Scroll down the second, wait for it to load. And then do that 100+ times to get to whatever letter we left off at which can take upwards of 30 minutes JUST TO GET TO the stories in the later half of the alphabet. It’s mind numbingly tedious. If you know exactly the story’s title you want to hear, the search function is fine but just browsing is a joke. ESPECIALLY if your 5 year old accidentally backs out and then has to do it all over again. We’re definitely switching to a new app once our subscription is up if it’s not improved.
We love this app but the last few times we’ve tried to use it, it plays the first few seconds and then freezes. Also, the bookmarks are disappearing.
