With Your StoryTime, always be there to read the story to your loved ones. Featured in the Daily Telegraph, the Sun, 148 apps, iPhone mom, etc.

Record from anywhere in the world through our technology. Research shows that something as simple as reading to your children is key to their development and behaviour.

1. Record directly on the iPad so when points of interest on the screen are touched, it's your voice that describes it.

2. If you can't record before leaving, or want to tell a new version of the story each day, no problems: record your voice and video when you have time on your iPhone and it syncs up to the iPad!

3. Record videos of yourself to play at the start and end of the story to tell them how much you love them or wish them a good nights sleep.

Reading a story to your baby is one of the most effective ways to bond with your child and Your StoryTime can ensure you are always there for them.


Ideal for:

- Parents away from home for any period
- Grand parents wanting to be more involved
- Parents bringing up children bilingual

A completely new concept for storytime, never miss it again!

THIS APP CAN BE USED TO RECEIVE RECORDED STORIES FROM AN IPHONE DIRECTLY TO YOUR IPAD. SEARCH FOR "YOUR STORYTIME: COMPANION APP"

Based on Margret Rey and H. A. Rey’s children’s book and the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story featuring Curious George is part of iRead With, a new read-aloud program created to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.
