ZigZag Stories is a children's eReader that puts you in control of the story. YOU make decisions that guide the path of the story to "happily ever after" or a not-so-happy ending.
We brought together dozens of amateur and professional authors, and several talented illustrators, and asked them to create multi-path and multiple-ending books. Our writers come from all walks of life and have a real passion for what they do. Many of the books are planned as a series, so come back often to see if the next book in your new favorite series is available.
With our books on your phone or tablet, you can take them anywhere you go to keep your kids busy while waiting in the doctor's office, riding in the car, or for book reports and school reading projects. Parents who travel can now read their kids a bedtime story over the phone.
Books are grouped together by age range, and then sold on Android Market as a "volume". Purchase them once, and read them over and over to your heart's content. There is at least one Promo volume of books available for free if you want to try out the app and some of our books before you buy. The age ranges for the volumes are 3-5 years old, 6-8 years old, 9-12 years old, and 13 and up. There's something for every child.
Current features include the ability to bookmark your place and come back later, saving the path that you just read and reading it the same way again, caching images to SD card for faster display, and adjusting the font size of the book. We've got a number of new features planned, but are also looking for your feedback and suggestions as well.
At the end of every story, you have the option to rate that path and enter a comment. Our authors have access to these ratings and comments and can't wait to see your feedback and put it to use in their next books.
This free app now comes with the free Promo Volume, which is a collection of partial books that you can read to get an idea of what the app can do. Go into Settings to turn off display of the Promo books.
Do YOU have a passion for writing? Swarcon Labs is currently accepting applications of new authors who would like to publish their quality written work on our app. See our website for details.
