Try our sample stories and get free books!
Experience beautifully illustrated books with synchronized music and let us know what you think. This is an early version of the app where we offer four classic sample stories (and more to come!). Our state of the art technology provides the stories with carefully-crafted instrumental music that changes and evolves with both the plot and your own reading pace.
This app is only a small taste of what is to come. If you give us feedback, you will be rewarded with two books for free (one for you and one for a friend) when Bubo officially launches. We are still ironing out a few issues (performance, battery, size and some bugs) so we need to learn from you in order to make the experience even better.
With your help, Bubo can become an amazing new way of immersing yourself in classic literature, children stories or your favourite novel with the emotional impact of movie music and the uniqueness of beautiful art.
Sounds good? Try Bubo and discover it for yourself!
