Kindoma Storytime is a free iPad app that I can definitely see myself using with my nieces who live 1,000 miles away from me. Kindoma Storytime allows me to read stories my nieces through our iPads. Here’s how it works; after I create a free account I can invite my family members to connect with me through the app (they will have to have it on their iPads too). Once we’re connected the app is a bit Skype-like as we can video call each other. When we’re connected we can pick a book from the library of free books. As I read my nieces will see the same page that I’m on and will see the pages turn when I turn them. Of course, when my nieces get older they can use the app to read to me too.
