Are your little ones gathered and you simply need audio stories for kids to keep them entertained? Or to help them fall asleep? Play the stories on your phone or connect the app to any bluetooth speaker and even in your car.

Each story on TELL has its own audio track, but the real beauty comes in narrating your own. TELL makes everyone a storyteller!
Think of it like a place to record your own audiobooks. If you’re away from home or living apart from your children or grandchildren, TELL ensures they don’t miss out on a bedtime story. If you enjoy writing children’s stories, TELL helps you share them. For those with elderly relatives, it’s a lovely way to preserve their memories and life lessons.
Simply choose a story and read the text into the app. Your voice is recorded in small chapters, ensuring a simple slip of the tongue doesn’t undo a few minutes of perfect diction.

Custom stories on TELL provide a blank canvas for your own creativity - from kids inventing a story or recording a book review to Parents preserving their family history and keeping it safe for the next generation to enjoy. Let your imagination run free! Start a podcast!
TELL allows you to easily enhance your stories by adding imagery to your narration, such as family photographs, or pictures from your phone.
