Our First iPad Applications


La la la la.... Guess who has an iPad application? We...we...we!! Yes, now you can read/listen to our books on an iPad too. Awesome, isn't it? And it is all because of the wonderful folks at Fliplog (Thank you Brij and Rashmi). We are also so happy that someone is able to use our Creative Commons licensed content and do stuff with it that we on our own couldn't possibly do.

How do our books come into the picture?

Indian kids get exposed to multiple languages. Increasingly, as part of the global diaspora, their skill levels dramatically vary across different languages. Many children can speak Hindi but cannot read Hindi scripts. Chand Ka Tohfa, an ebook based on the book published by Pratham Books, is an attempt to creatively use technology in increasing regional language exposure along with entertainment.

You can listen to the page by page audio, or read it to your child yourself by pressing mute icon any time during the story session.

Chand ka Tofah and Annual Haircut Day are the two books which are currently available.

One of their customers says :

It is so great to see a Hindi book for iPad. I am looking forwards to more from you guys. Maybe ones with ka, kha ga and more for preschoolers to help them get started with the language. Keep it up ! - SSKVK

So, if you've got an iPad or an iPhone, we hope you can check out these amazing apps developed by Fliplog and give us and them your feedback on these books.

We also got to see and listen to our books on the brand new iPad Brij brought to our office. Icing on the cake :)
