Farfaria App Review and Giveaway


I recently had the opportunity to review the really cool reading app FarFaria.

Captain America really loves me to read him stories, which of course I love to do. However, he seriously would have me read them all day if he could. So when I heard about FarFaria I thought it would be a great app to try out while we are working on Captain reading more to himself.

PLUS as a bonus I have a 3 month subscription for you to win! First of all this app works on Android and iPhones so it doesn't matter if you have an Android loving husband like mine or a Apple one like my brother, you can use this app on either.

The app is really easy to get around. In fact I never looked at it until Captain had been using it for a week or so. There is a huge variety of books to choose from. They are divided into different topics animals, classics, fairytales, adventure, and bedtime. It's set up like a cool map, Captain calls it his treasure map. Which of course I think is cool because books of course are a treasure.

There are a ton of fact and fiction books available on the app which can be sorted my topic and reading level.

Captain likes to have the books read to him, but older more experienced readers can choose to read the books themselves. It's really easy as you can tell from a picture of his pad below. Green button and off he goes. Internet is needed to read new books but once you save it to your favorite then it's available off-line. Which is something we are working on for our next road trip. Books are SO much better than movies.


 

The books are all listed in reading ability and and the reading levels are clearly posted on the front of each book.
