Apple has once again launched the much talked about new app for tvOS. This time the target market is neither the working class nor the socialites millennials. The app was designed to let children and parents have some well-spent quality time together for learning and reading books before bedtime.

According to The Verge, iBooks StoryTime is now available for download from the App Store. The tech giant's goal is to fulfill their promise to give families a "different way to experience classic kids' books and discover new favorites." With the use of the Siri Remote to flip pages, iBooks StoryTime app can read books on your TV. The app also has the Read-Aloud function: thus, a pre-recorded narration can be enabled and has an automatic page turning. There are also added features like sound effects and highlighted words on-screen as they are being read aloud, as further explained by The Verge

Aside from the read-aloud function, parents can read the stories themselves to their children by turning that functionality off. The good thing about this is that they can read books for their children with a bonus bigger screen for your children. Reports suggest that it is better to use the app on a smart TV than the portable devices' small screen, especially for books with engaging images, as iTechPost reported.

The 4th generation Apple TV devices can go to their tvOS App Store to download the app for free. Once you download the iBooks StoryTime app, it will come with a free book entitled "Dora's Big Buddy Race Read-Along Storybook". It is perfect its Read-Aloud functionality. On the other hand, if you want to get other children's books, users need to purchase them using the StoryTime app, or the iBookstore on Mac, iPhone and iPad, as per iTechPost. The other children's books with Read-Aloud functionality include Lava, The ABCs of Cookies, The Little Red Hen, Green Eggs and Ham, Meet Tracker, and Goodnight Moon, as further listed down by The Verge.
