Pros: I love that the books are classic, beautifully illustrated books without the Nickelodeon sass that you find on so many other children's literary apps. I searched far and wide for an app that highlights the word when it's reading the book to you, and this one does that. I love this feature because I feel like it really helps kids learn to read.
Cons: the different language features are frustrating. There is no lock on the other languages so my child constantly meandered into the different nationalities and I found her listening to stories she couldn't understand.
They also present the new books as a selling point but there is no way of seeing just the new material. New books are impossible to find in the mix of all the books.
But worst of all is their customer service. I emailed them three times and contacted them on their Facebook page to get help answering a simple question and never got a response. So frustrating. Don't bother buying the app.

Great App for Kids!!


I met one of the creators of this app, and he was awesome! And so is this app! Great for kids. Love all the stories and there are new ones being added daily. I am a nanny for 2 children and they love having the story read to them. It's also a plus that they can click on different objects throughout the story. I do wish that the 'read myself' option was a little different. I would love for my kiddos to be able to slide their finger across the words smoothly and continuously while reading along instead of being able to only hit 1 word at a time. Overall, great app! Share with friends!!!

So glad I found this app!


I babysit two young kids who used to refuse to fall asleep for me. Found the Pickatale app and now they can pick their own story for me to read to them. They're so much better behaved at bedtime now! The design is easy to use and the selection is unbeatable. If you have kids this is a useful app to have.
