Why we love this app
Its simple instructions let kids start experimenting with storytelling right away. Parents will also have a blast coming up with their own creations.
What it teaches and how it works
The concept of the story arc is reinforced throughout every level of the application as kids organize their imagination around the classic narrative elements Setup, Conflict, Challenge, Climax and Resolution. The tools are very simple. After pressing record, users just move images around the screen and narrate the action by speaking into the iPad's microphone.
Why your kid won't be able to put it down
The creative possibilities here are limitless, inspiring a lot of repeat play. ToonTube is a walled-in community to share videos and view creations from others.
