WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT WONDERSCOPE
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.”
“Because kids look through the iPad to see the story on the other side, Wonderscope won’t close them off to the outside world.”
“Wonderscope, a new augmented reality app for Apple devices, reminded me of that childhood feeling, of a kid's imagination ignited by a story.”
“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."

Ratings and Reviews
We haven’t seen anything like this before
Am always skeptical when it comes to kids apps and try to limit my kids’ screen time but this one blew us all away. Once the surprise and awe wore off of a virtual scene appearing in our living room, my eight year old began to follow the reading prompts which actually move you through the narrative. Exploring this pop up dynamic world is an amazing motivator to read in complete sentences instead of words or fragments. It was like a moving playground in our space where we could all explore. My son was standing, walking and even jumping (along with reading) while using this app unlike some other games where he is in some sedentary trance. Highly recommend to parents who may prefer to keep their kids engaged with their actual environment and reading instead of engrossed in a screen fantasy.
Great app to get kids moving and reading
I love this app because not only is it helping my daughter learn to read but she’s also moving around with the characters instead of being hunched over, glued to the screen.
My six year old loves it because of the augmented reality. It’s incredibly cool! She gets to join the characters in their adventures right there in the middle of the living room.
Well done, looking forward to more!
Few issues - mostly good
Issues - not much content yet and 5$ for the next story(which I purchased ) was not worth it. You need to read the screen but sometimes it just doesn’t hear you. Not a huge deal .
The game idea itself is really cool and the free story is pretty incredible. The kids enjoy working their way through this incredible story brought to life.
