Almost Perfect. Needs direct calling feature...

I really do love this app; it keeps my family and my kids in touch over many thousands of miles. My biggest complaint is that when you call somebody or they call you it doesn’t show you the call screen like other video or calling apps do, it just shows a drop-down notification which is confusing for my parents and grandparents. The video chat functionality is also not up to par with other apps. When transitioning out of a current story to go find other stories there is a lag and choppiness to the video feed, and it becomes hard to communicate for a few seconds until it clears up. Please update this and will definitely be a 5-star app!

Loving it as a traveling parent!!!

Our daughter is now a bit over 3 years old and pretty much used to me (her dad) reading at least one bed time story every night. In recent weeks I had to start traveling a lot for my job and our little
one started to be pretty mad at me for not being able to do the usual bed time routine. In the beginning I tried reading to her via FaceTime call, but that ended up being pretty clunky and I began searching for other apps that might offer a more shared and interactive experience. Voila, here comes Caribu!!! It is amazing how I am now able to do a video call while sharing the same screen and reading from one of the many digital books to her. Some of the books even offer a joint drawing function which my daughter loves (as long as I draw :D). Caribu has really become part of our bed time routine when I am traveling or sometime even when staying late in the office, so I would strictly recommend it to any parent that likes to increase communication quality and the depth of the personal connection with their kiddos. They will thank you for it! Noting beats being there in person, but this is a big step close than just an video or phone call. Big thumbs up for Caribu!!!

Grandchildren out of the country

Caribu is the answer to my prayers! My grandchildren live out of the country due to my son’s employment. My 4 yo granddaughter loves to chat online, but this genius app lets us read awesome books and play some really great games together. She even tries to read to me some of the easier books. With the 2 way video, we can expand the camera to a full page and she can show me what she did at school and new dances she learned. She is getting quite computer savvy because of this app which was an unexpected surprise. She can navigate all over the place and I didn’t teach her. I tried another similar app, but the books were lousy and we were limited to 20 minutes per month. It was also way more expensive. With Caribu, we can read several days a week and not fixate on the time. I am getting to watch her grow up and don’t feel so far away. Caribu is worth every dollar and I would pay more. I hope they keep adding new things for those of us who are super users! Many thanks to the developers for your creative app!!
