Santa Barbara, California – zuuka, one of the world’s largest publishers of digital children’s books, today announced that its iStoryTime storybook library app is now available for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With four free full featured books (Madagascar, The Giant Smurf, Ice Age and Robin Hood) included, the iStoryTime library contains a wide selection of narrated children’s storybooks from kids’ favorite films, TV shows and classic stories.
“The new iStoryTime library app helps parents keep all their kids’ favorite storybooks in one place while still keeping the same rich and immersive experience that our fans have come to know and love,” said Graham Farrar, founder of zuuka. “
Featuring professional narration, character audio, interactive and immersive story experiences, and the ability to preview books before purchasing, the library contains a large collection of stories such as The Croods, Rise of the Guardians, Kung Fu Panda, Monsters vs. Aliens, Meet Biscuit, The Smurfs and many more.
Parents can preview and buy these titles via in-app purchases, which are secured behind a pin-protected parental lock. Kids can freely pick and choose from already purchased stories in their library, without being tempted by un-purchased books. “We’re parents too and we’re tired of being harassed to make in-app purchases by our kids. Bye-Bye “can we get this pleeeezeee?” remarked Farrar.”
From reliving the adventures of reader’s favorite Zoosters in Madagascar to following the magical little creatures in The Smurfs, woolly mammoths in Ice Age or Robin Hood in one of the great classics – the iStoryTime library app is perfect for learning to read, summer road trips, bedtime stories and more.
