Alpaca Children's Story Books

This app was a candidate in the Apptivate.MS semi-finals. See how it did among the other candidates in the Knowledge group.

Classic children's tales and original stories brought to life through vibrant colors, engaging animations, and your own audio narration. Record multiple audio tracks for every story so that whether you're in the room, or across the world, your loved ones can hear you read their favorite story in that special way that only you do. Turn pages with an easy swipe or click -- your little ones can enjoy flipping through stories without needing a grown-up's help. Regular, free, story updates from Team Alpaca and friends guarantee that your bookshelf will never grow stale. Who said reading isn't fun?

Very nice. is there audio to these also?

Thanks for the praise. The concept is that children and parents record their own audio. In the bottom right corner there is a simple record and play setup. You can also configure in the settings to automatically play back recordings on page turn, and we allow for several profiles so you can have one for grandma, dad, mom, the kids, and such.

Oh neat, I hadn't noticed that. My dad sent my daughter a recorded Goodnight Moon book where it would play narration from them as the pages turned. That's cool, thanks for the explain.

I didn't really make it clear in the video, being that I didn't put audio on them. But I was late to the Apptivate party, only posting the app a couple of days ago. I appreciate your feedback, though. It's nice to know someone took a look! :)

A great idea to let children interact with a new approach of story teller, wow!

Thanks! It's going to get a lot more interactive in the future. I personally coded, hand illustrated, and animated the whole thing. So as time permits I'm adding in click events and branching stories. I intend to support the app with free content and functionality updates for a long time to come.
