Reading bedtime stories to your kids represents an important step in their relationship with you and also in their growth process. But these days, there are many situations when the working mum or dad isnâ€™t near their children when they have to go to bed. There are many causes: maybe they are tethered to the office, the parents are separated or maybe they are army personnel serving thousands of miles away from home. And if your granny has an iPad at hand, then by using this app, she could tell some bedtime stories to her beloved grandchildren, as well. Four university students have created a new video calling app for iPad which allows parents and children to read picture books together even if they're apart. Ben Mallett, one of the co-founders, said the following:
Caribu for iPad can be downloaded for free and comes with a free story book so that users can see how it works like. Each video call interlocutor has a virtual bookshelf to choose books from, and each book will cost $2.99. Thanks to the shared pointer, the users are able follow the story together. The app also comes with synchronised page turning and offline reading which lets you read books when youâ€™re together.
