Waiblingen, Germany (PressExposure) January 06, 2010 -- These novel apps take full advantage of the powerful iPhone technology and take childrenâs books to a new level. Easy downloads through iTunes or directly through WiFi, simple navigation, automatic or fingertip page turning, scrollable text, and storage of personal preferences are some examples of the application's functionality. But the real advantage from the childrenâs and parentsâ perspective is the extensive customization thatâs available with these new apps. The âRecord Your Own Voiceâ feature lets the parents record their voices reading the story, the resizable text makes reading and word recognition easier for little eyes, and the Child Lock or child safety mode ensures that the child canât accidentally change something on the phone.
The MCB library features modern reproductions of quality picture books, classic fairy tales and original stories beautifully narrated and written in English, German and Russian. Beginning of January 2010, seven stories will be released simultaneously in the Apple App Store including "The wolf and the seven little goats" and "The princess and the pea". Prices range from 0.99 to 3.99 USD per MCB.
âThe new iPhone technology has allowed us to produce compelling MCB Mobile Children's Books that can be personalized and accessed any place and any time. Our goal is to enlighten, entertain and encourage a love for books in your children through this new medium,â explains Kirstin Hofkens, President and co-creator of Mobile Childrenâs Books. âWe built a solid foundation that opens the door to broad acceptance of narrated and illustrated children's books for mobile devices and hope to soon build partnerships with publishing companies around the world.â
The brainchild of husband and wife team, Kirstin and Roeland Hofkens, Mobile Childrenâs Book was first born out of a personal need. As frequent travelers and parents of a growing little girl, Kirstin and Roeland wanted to encourage their daughterâs fascination with storybooks but faced a challenge when it came to packing all the heavy books. Kirstin searched the internet for books she could download onto her computer, but found only limited resources. Because of their background in technology and their experience in creating the BabyPhone Deluxe http://www.babyphoneweb.com, the Hofkens were able to create these new iPhone apps that met their own high standards for their daughter.
