TouchyBooks is a children application that wants to encourage them to read and let them discover the magic world of books. This app was created to provide entertainment to the kids while they're at home, on a trip or whenever they feel like it.
TouchyBooks is presented in five languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian) so they can start getting familiar with an extra language. The application consists of a book store where you can purchase e-books (some are already available, some others aren't) and install them in your device. Then, you can read them as e-books.
It has page selection, reader number count and the possibility of inserting evaluations. You can access directly to your collection of downloaded books, the top ones and even search for your favorites.
The design is colorful and clean and even though the app has some bug problems (it sometimes force closes) we like the idea and we think it's a really great idea to introduce children to the habit of reading. It's perfect because they are using technology (which they love) at the same time they're exercising their creativity.

Comments and ratings for PlayTales
I used to be able to download for free with adds but not anymore now I have to pay I am not paying.
Bought 6 of these books for .99 each and daughter enjoyed them, then had to send tablet back for repairs. Same tablet as before, but now I'm not allowed to download again. Unfair, and now they want 2.49 each. Forget it. There are other books out there
I like it! Not unlike!
Not only do I wish to use my purchased books on two devices, but I had to replace my phone and lost all the books I had bought. Beware! If I would have known this I would have never purchased all those books! It's a really crummy way for the to make more
