Welcome to Touchoo – where the magic of children’s books is but a tiny touch away…
Led by a group of parents, Touchoo set out to provide parents and children with a rapidly growing selection of high-quality, well categorized, educationally-sound and professionally reviewed interactive children’s book-apps. We aim to bring to you everything and anything you’d want to have in children’s storytelling and educational books.
Touchoo’s customer community will be able to access purchased book-apps on all relevant devices, without paying for the same content twice: be it on Mom’s iPad, Dad’s Galaxy SII or the new family Xoom2 tablet – your content will be right there, wherever you are. As technology changes rapidly, Touchoo is constantly evolving with it. Touchoo supports all major platforms where storytelling magic can take place…. Apple and Android smartphones and tablets today… gesture-controlled TVs tomorrow… and then – into infinity and beyond!
Our vision of providing the best digital children’s bookstore, led us to develop a cool solution for professional children’s content owners: a way in which the very best in children’s content can easily find its way onto all those different devices and technologies. Owners of rights for children’s books, animation, interactive content, TV series and more can now quickly, powerfully and above all – cost effectively –convert their content into interactive children’s book-apps using Touchoo’s Creator Tool. No coding. No techies. No worries about cross-platform reach. Flexible. Powerful.
