Remember JibJab? The folks that brought us the hilarious pre-YouTube viral videos and the company that reinvented the e-card with the Starring You series has launched a new educational and entertainment service called StoryBots.
I downloaded the StoryBots app for the iPad and it definitely has potential. The app is free, and there is no charge for one of the stories. You select a photo of your kids and the app transposes the picture onto the body of the main character and guides you through an e-book adventure focused around the dances/rituals of different cultures.
Unfortunately the app crashed several times when my daughter and I tried it on the original iPad (which has the most updated software system installed), so let’s hope there’s an update coming soon.
