Imagine your favorite book came to life on your floor and asked you to play a part in the story! Wonderscope is an award-winning iOS app for kids that uses augmented reality to transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary stories. Through your Wonderscope, you can see the story take place all around you, whether you open the app in your room or outdoors. Read your lines aloud to engage with and talk to characters, and help them solve problems along the way.


New York Magazine:
“For parents with younger kids, I’ve got at least one thing that could assuage some of that guilt about screen time: Wonderscope.”

“What if you could give your child an iPad for an hour and not feel guilty about it?... an app that makes kids smile and feel confident as they read absolutely feels like a win.”

Fast Company:
“Because kids look through the iPad to see the story on the other side, Wonderscope won’t close them off to the outside world.”

“To get a sense of Wonderscope, imagine if Snapchat filters or Pokemon Go went to work at Pixar after graduating from Juilliard.”

“The future of storytelling is happening all around us — we just have to look through the right lens to see it.”

Common Sense Media:
""It feels almost magical to watch as suddenly animated characters and scenery pop up all around you as part of ... engaging stories.""

WIRED, regarding Wonderscope story Clio's Cosmic Quest:
""It might be the best 8-minute astronomy lesson out there.""

In December 2019, Wondersope was awarded a BAFTA Children’s Award for its inaugural story, “A Brief History of Amazing Stunts by Astounding People,” created in partnership with PRELOADED.

My son doesn’t like reading but with this app he enjoys trying. It has trouble hearing you and the music is a bit louder than the characters so you need to be in a quiet area or close to the phone and speak up. My son is quiet and doesn’t pronounce his words well so it’s a bit tough when the app can not understand him or hear him. Other than that this such a great idea! I feel if I point out the words and read out loud my son will get the hang of it and be able to do this on his own.

Thank you! We need more games like this ❤️

Over priced but great concept

There needs to be a way to share between family accounts. Both my kids loved the app, but to give the kids each of the stories is just waaayyy too expensive. Each story is $5 and cannot be shared so each kid has to buy it on their own account. The other issue is that it sometimes doesn’t hear when my kids are reading the words and other times it moves on before my kids are done reading. It can get frustrating. Also, sometimes it can play a story fine on our living room but then will randomly say it’s too dark without the light ever changing. The stories so far are fun and cool. And it is good motivation to read. I would add a subscription service that could be shared between accounts ( like with a parent log in) and I’d be willing to rate it much higher that way.

Doesn’t support family sharing

I love this app. We have every story. However, I finally got my son his own iPad and tried to share this app and all of the stories since it is supported by family sharing (according to their information in the store) and it is not sharing anything. It shows that I have re purchase all of the stories again. Each one of these is about $4.99 each, that adds up to a pretty penny. Why have it listed as family sharing supported if you aren’t going to allow that? I also contacted the developer already and received an email stating that they weren’t going to make it available to see on the other. Apple should make them REMOVE the identification of family sharing if they are not going to honor it.
