Not all seniors are fortunate enough to live near their grandkids. Even fewer are fortunate enough to spend regular quality time with them, especially at night.
Well, there is one app trying to change this. It’s called Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime, and this app lets grandparents read bedtime stories to their grandchildren via the iPad or iPhone 4. The app comes with classic children’s stories and nursery rhymes like Jack and Jill, Humpty Dumpty and Three Blind Mice.
Grandparents and grandchildren simply need to sync their devices to one another through Apple’s Game Center, which lets friends interact and play games against each other with their devices. Grandchildren can then follow along as the grandparents read the ebook aloud and turn its virtual pages. These stories are also interactive, so grandchildren can move the characters around by touching or shaking their iPhones or iPads.
The Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime app costs $3.99, and is available as an ebook through the App Store.
