Story Bug: Read Books Together with Video Chat

By Cricket Magazine Group & Ethervision

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Read together, even when you’re apart! Story Bug combines video chat with a shared reader displaying educational books to enable story time with a loved one anywhere, anytime.

Key Features
• Dozens of books available from award-winning children’s publisher Cricket Media. More books added every month. Teach your little loved one (age 0-6) about the ABCs, 123s, animals, shapes, colors, emotions, and more.
• Invite family members to connect in the app and then call anytime for story time, or record a reading for them to enjoy later
• After receiving a recording of a book, send an adorable thank you video to the reader!
• Synchronous, shared reader allows both participants in a call to see the same page of the book and turn pages together
• See where each other are pointing on the screen to sound out words or identify objects
• Three free books available; more via in-app purchase individually or via subscription ($4,99/mo, $14.99/6-mos, $24.99/yr)
• Purchases are shared during a call, so only one side needs to pay for premium book access.

Story Bug is perfect for parents who travel for work, grandparents who live far away from their grandchildren or other family members who want to share story time when they’re apart.

How Story Bug, powered by Kindoma, works:
While you are together in a call or next to each other, the book selections and page turns are synchronized on both sides. You can point to things on the page and the other side can see where you are pointing. Use this feature to highlight words as you read, or ask questions and have the children point to things on the page.
