New iPhone Story Apps from iOrbi Help Parents

iOrbi, LLC, a Chicago-based technology company, has released three new children’s apps for the iPhone that use the smartphone’s record feature to give kids and parents the option to override the default narration and tell the story in their own voice.

The story apps developed specifically for kids titled Buddy the Bus #2: A Scary Night, Sophia Wants To Be … A Painter and Warty the Witch and the Vanishing Voice follow the design of iOrbi’s Buddy the Bus #1:There’s Always Tomorrow story app which was featured in Apple stores as part of an iPhone promotional campaign this past spring, and received praise from customers for its unique “Record Your Voice” option.

“When we developed our first story app, our aim was to use the features of the iPhone to enhance the story telling experience for kids, so including the ability to record just made sense to us. It allows kids and parents to become active participants rather than just passive listeners. And the act of taking part in the story telling experience is what we think connects readers to the characters in the stories,” says Don Way, Managing Partner, iOrbi, LLC.

In addition to the “Record Your Voice” option, the story apps features vibrant, full color illustrations and heart-warming stories that are meant to entertain and teach kids simple life lessons.

iOrbi uses its proprietary content engine, AppInHand, to produce its children’s story app series. Way says that the company is actively working to connect with content owners looking to bring their work to the growing smartphone audience.

All children’s story apps from iOrbi may be found on iTunes by searching for “iOrbi.”
