Description

Award-Winning App: Parents’ Choice Award, NAPPA Gold Award and PTPA Media Award - for excellence and innovation in mobile, on-demand delivery of audio books and stories for kids and families.

Named a top 10 app of 2010 by Best Kids Apps and “A Top 5 Must-Have iPhone App for Parents” according to CNET.

Try Tales2Go for FREE for 30 days, then choose among three subscription options: One Month for $2.99; Three Months for $6.99 or One Year for $24.99.

Now visit www.tales2go.com/m4s_parents to link your Tales2Go account to your kids' school - and Tales2Go will donate 10% of every subscription you make to that school.

Kids love listening to great stories. And you'll love the fact that listening builds critical listening and comprehension skills - what teachers call 'audio processing skills.' Add an important alternative to 'screen time' in your kids' lives.

Tales2Go gives teachers and parents instant, on-demand and unlimited access to over 1, 400 books and stories from leading audio publishers and storytellers. Book and story selections range from 3 to pre-teen, and from fairytales to classics like Curious George Rides a Bike to popular series and characters such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid and How to Train Your Dragon. We have also just added 'parenting' titles in a new For Moms and Dads section.

- "Great for classroom and personal use. I've been using Tales2Go in my Kindergarten classroom during rest time. Each day since September, I put Tales2Go on, find a new story in the "Ages 5+" or "Storytellers" categories or continue a story that I saved in "Favorites." The students enjoy the variety and I enjoy not having to run out to the public library to borrow audiobooks." Kindergarten Teacher and Mom

- "Very Useful. I am a teacher and use this with my 4th Grade students. They love the variety of stories." jonathanwylie

- "A Mom Must-Have! My two boys (ages 7 and 9) love this app! We listen in the car as we travel, during dinner and before bed. Both the boys and I like the vast variety of stories to choose from and the fact it is so user-friendly" CuteBoyMom

- Tales2Go is a fantastic resource for Homeschool families. We love listening eveywhere, kitchen table, car and even in bed before bedtime. Love tales2go." R. Nichol

- "LOVE this app! As a special education teacher I really appreciate the ability to access audio books/stories for students. As a person I really love the flexibility to listen to books while I work, drive, and relax. This is a fantastic app." Jeubank

- "Great app! My whole family and I listened to Encylopedia Brown in the car today (what a blast from the past) and it worked perfectly. Lots of great content for all ages... I definitely recommend giving it a shot." whitemencantjump

What's New in Version 2.0

Good news: this update brings you many improvements to the Tales2Go App:

NOTICE: version 2.0 will not work with 3.1.3 at the moment; we have a bug and fix underway. This issue only effects people with a first generation iPhone or iPod Touch who cannot upgrade their operating system (iOS) beyond 3.1.3. The vast majority of users have a higher level iOS or can sync their device with their computer and follow the on-screen instructions to update their iOS to a level higher than 3.1.3. If you continue to have problems, please email us at support@tales2go.com. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Multiple Payment Options – buy a month, three months or full year of Tales2Go. You’re in charge; buy what you need.

Five Licenses Per Account – sign on and register up to five Apple devices per account/subscription giving you greater listening options.

Multitasking – listen to Tales2Go stories and do other things on your phone at the same time. In other words, do two things at once as part of Apple’s new OS4.

Sharing – share your favorite stories with friends and family by sending them an email with a link to the story from within the app.

30-Seconds Back – jump back 30 seconds in a story with just one-click.

Buffering Indicator – now you can see when a story has been fully buffered, thus allowing you to start a story at home and play the rest of it in the car or on a plane. Great for iPod Touch owners who want to listen to stories beyond a WiFi signal. Note this is for one story only; we’re working on buffering/temporarily storing multiple stories.

Refresh – make sure you have the latest and greatest stories on Tales2Go. We’re up to nearly 1,300 titles and adding more every week.

We hope you enjoy all the upgrades. We appreciate all the feedback we’ve received, and have been listening.

Fantastic !!!

:
Our kids (9,7&4) LOVE the stories! The audiobooks are also especially good for our non-reader & our emergent reader, since they help expand the kids' vocabulary range. The story selections are very nice, ranging from popular ones (whimpy kid, goosebumps, froggy...), to delightful new stories that we got to discover. We like the different age ranges to choose stories from. And we especially love the latest offer to be able to link up to 5 different devices to 1 account! Keep the new stories coming! We're listening to tales2go daily during car rides!

5/5 stars

Brilliant alternative to CD

:
My kids are audiobook junkies and we had exhausted the library, our CD's and had bought too many audible.com books. This program works seamlessly, has updated books and the VERY BEST part, works on multiple devices. So when my kids can't agree on what to listen to - bingo - one can have the iphone and one the ipad! They are 6 and 8 and can both navigate the program pretty easily and were excited to see classics like Encyclopedia Brown alongside Diary for a Wimpy Kid. I can't recommend this app enough. Do the free trial and you'll see how great it is!

5/5 stars

Best app ever!

:
Essential. We listen to stories in the car, at home and on-the-go. Amazing value for $24.99 for an entire year!
