Storm & Skye | Magical Adventure Storybook App for Kids
✔ iPad + iPhone ✔ Android | Storybook app for kids ages 5+ yrs.
You might be familiar with the situation: You buy a nice storybook app for your kids and after 5 minutes, they are finished with it already. Well, this will definitely not be the case with our today’s download recommendation, as this storybook app for kids, which we will introduce to you now, is not only really beautiful, it is also very comprehensive. Storm & Skye and The Secret of the Car Wash is a magical adventure story app for kids, with beautiful illustrations and a sensational total playing time of over 45 minutes! However, this is only one of the many reasons why you should check out this wonderful storybook app for kids.
A rather unusual Ride through the Car Wash
Even if the app is called “Storm & Skye”, at the beginning of the story, kids get to meet the boy Skye first, who is driving around with his mother in a bright red family car. Before the two of them return home, his mother wants to make a slight detour to the car wash – and even if we found this really exciting as kids, Skye seems rather unimpressed with the idea. What is there to be excited about a trip to the car wash?
What kind of magical adventure Storm and later on Skye get to experience in the car wash, we don’t really want to tell you at this point. Only this much can be said: The story certainly knows how to surprise and enchant. Nobody would have really expected to meet a knight and a dragon in a car wash. You can however get a little insight of the story in the following preview trailer of Storm & Skye:
Besides the beautiful graphics, we also find the sound backdrop of Storm & Skye’s first adventure truly remarkable. The app developers recommend the use of headphones for even more enjoyment for a good reason. The music backing and sound effects are very atmospheric and truly deserve a special mentioning and praise. The charming narrator also knows how to entertain and tell the 9 chapter subdivided story with plenty of excitement and atmosphere. Unfortunately no text is displayed throughout the story which also means that you won’t be able to read the story out yourself.
Storm & Skye Story App – Our Valuation
Storm & Skye particularly set their standards on quantity. We do not know of any other storybook app for kids with a total playing time of 45 minutes. The graphics and sounds are lush and the story itself is really captivating. Only the absence of text overlays could be criticized by some parents. The story runs in auto-play mode and only pauses at the end of each chapter, where a few possible interactions are waiting for kids to be discovered.
Little animations and sounds can be triggered via touch onto the marked action-areas.
Taken as a whole, Storm & Skye is one of the most remarkable story apps for kids this year – and we are really looking forward to the next editions. According to the iTunes description, the secret of the car wash is only the first episode of a whole series of beautifully illustrated, interactive and adventurous story apps, which are developed for children ages 5 years and above.
