FarFaria, a subscription app for iPad providing unlimited access to kids’ content for $3.99 a month, has inked a deal to offer 17 HarperCollins titles, as well as expanded support for the iPhone.
The soon-to-be-released FarFaria 3.0 update will add iPhone support, along with titles from HarperCollins’s popular I Can Read children’s series.
The addition of the HarperCollins titles will pad FarFaria’s current library of 750 interactive titles for kids between the ages of two and nine.
Susan Katz, president and publisher, HarperCollins Children’s Books, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with FarFaria to bring our I Can Read! stories to new audiences."
The update to the FarFaria app expands its support from iPad to the iPhone. The app is also available on the Android platform. The updated app offers a redesigned and optimized interface for iOS7, updated parental controls, and allows families to designate up to 50 titles that can be read offline.
FarFaria CEO and founder Ajay Godhwani said users’ subscriptions will automatically be added to their iPhone. He also noted that data shows that children on FarFaria read about 10 books a week. "Our goal with the new iPhone app is to increase the amount of time children read each week by making reading even more mobile and more fun." he said.
