PICVO is an interactive story book that is ideal for kids and parents alike. An Internet connection is not needed to run this iPad app so you can use this anytime and anyplace you want. Here is our complete review:

You can play and listen to the sample stories included in this app. There are only 3 available stories in its store so far and around 30 books will be coming soon. The stories are interesting and the graphics are very appealing. This app provides a fun way for kids to enjoy reading.

The most interesting feature of this app is that it allows you to record your own voice to narrate the wonderful stories to your children, grandchildren, or all the young readers. This is a perfect app for parents who don’t have enough time to read to their kids. The children could listen to your voice or even participate in the recording. You can create your own version of the story. This way, the kids would have more fun as they can hear their own voices in the stories.

It is very easy to do a recording. You record one page at a time. The script of each page is shown while you record. The length of time is also available on the top right of the screen to inform you how much time you have left. Then, once you are done, you can check and playback your recording. If you are happy with the outcome, you can save it and play it for your children anytime they want.

PICVO is available on iTunes for free but the stories in its store are sold separately.
