[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - FarFaria, dubbed "the Netflix of children's stories" by USA Today, announced today the much-anticipated release of the next version of FarFaria, now with a "Read to Me" feature. Families can now enjoy FarFaria's entire collection in audio. Now available in Apple's App Store, the new release will help further bring to life FarFaria's beautifully illustrated, engaging and immersive stories.
"The new 'Read to Me' feature makes reading adventures in FarFaria more immersive and fun, giving families more to explore in our world," said Intuary CEO and Co-Founder Ajay Godhwani. "This release of FarFaria brings readers one big step closer to our goal of creating the perfect story time."
In addition to the "Read to Me" feature, FarFaria now includes "Reading Level Badges" on the cover of each story. This addition allows parents to easily identify stories appropriate for their children to read on their own. And, to find the right story faster, readers can now sort by story title, reading level or release date.
FarFaria is also unveiling its newest land, Looney Lagoon, where readers will find all types of humorous and silly stories for children. This new land will launch with three brand new stories, including "Happy Dog," the sequel to the popular "Grumpy Cat."
To celebrate the release of these latest updates, FarFaria has launched a 200 Story Dash campaign. Beginning today, FarFaria will release two new stories every day, culminating in the release of its 200th story on September 8th. FarFaria will then increase its regular schedule to publish five new stories every week.
"We release new stories frequently to ensure that there is always something new for inquisitive young minds to explore, and our 200 Story Dash accelerates these efforts," said Godhwani.
Developed by Intuary, FarFaria is a fun and trusted environment where a child can select from an abundance of high-quality stories and fall in love with reading. FarFaria's developers understand that getting kids excited about reading involves more than just giving them one good book, which is why a subscription to FarFaria gives users access to FarFaria's entire library of engaging and immersive stories.
