[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Educational development company MyStoryTime, LLC introduces a new interactive storybook app for children of all ages called, MyStoryTime 1.0. The app allows a child to become the story's protagonist. Developed by a group of students from Harvard Business School as part of an academic project, it has now made its App Store debut as a full-fledged app.
MyStoryTime is a unique and original iPad application that can be personalized to let kids step into the story and experience the action, as it unfolds. The engaging storyline promotes reading in a fun and interactive environment and lets kids enjoy the excitement of being part of a story by literally stepping into the shoes of the protagonist.
"MyStoryTime lets your children's imagination run wild as they become the main character of their own personalized adventure," said Austin Archibald, Co-Founder, MyStoryTime, LLC, also a father of two who strives to get a better understanding of what fascinates kids.
Key features of MyStoryTime iPad app include:
* Ability to personalize a storybook by becoming the main character
* Option to choose photos to include up to 2 faces to the story
* Interactive content such as parallax which replicates an underwater feel
* Option for push-button narration (The child may read the story aloud or have it read to him)
Archibald continued, "The easy and intuitive app interface is simple enough for a child to handle, while the stories are entertaining for the whole family. With MyStoryTime, stories can become lasting memories."
Unlike most traditional books that fail to hold a child's interest over time, MyStoryTime can be used repeatedly over and over with endless possibilities and many future storylines. The debut book, "If I were a Scuba Diver" is the first interactive title released by the company, which has already received a number of positive reviews from customers.
"We are always interested in hearing from our customers. Things they like, things they don't, or just general questions - we want to know," concluded Archibald.
* Requires iPad with iOS 6.0 or later
* 15.9 MB
