by Tales2Go LLC
Our next review comes on the heels of Applicable2U’s one year anniversary. Almost a year ago Applicable2U began this blog based on a conversation that was had with those at Tales2Go. Through their encouragement my role as a parent and a teacher was intertwined with the app world. So it seems fitting to be wishing Tales2Go a very happy holiday as we review their most recent update to their already well known Pandora like app for children. If you are familiar with the original version of Tales2Go, then you know that it provides children and adults a great deal of enjoyment as they read on the go.
