MONTREAL, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Available today, the Reading Rewards iOS app will get kids and teens excited about reading, by letting them log their reading time, connect to friends on the subject of reading, and earn rewards.
Kids & teens read their books offline, then log their reading in the app, where their parents or teachers can validate it. As they read, they earn special points called "RR Miles", which they can trade in for rewards that their parents and teachers define for them through the Reading-Rewards.com website.
The app also provides many built-in incentives to generate excitement around reading. As they read, for example, kids and teens move up levels, earn special badges, or use their RR Miles to buy jokes and riddles.
Finally, kids and teens can connect with their friends on Reading Rewards to see what books they are reading, and to read their book reviews.
Since 2010, Reading-Rewards.com has been used worldwide by thousands of teachers and librarians looking for time-saving alternatives to paper reading logs, as well as innovative ways to encourage their students to read.
"Our primary goal for launching the app was to makes Reading Rewards available to kids and teens who don't have computers at home, but who have access to iPads through their schools. It's a request we've had again and again, and that we're very excited to deliver on," says Michelle Skamene, the founder of Reading-Rewards.com.
Even children with access to both a computer and an iOS device may prefer to go mobile, so that they can use Reading Rewards wherever they do their reading.
"We're expecting thousands of kids and teens to log into Reading Rewards when schools open in the fall," adds Carole Alalouf, Managing Partner of Reading Rewards. "When they do, they can choose to enjoy the program on their device of choice – a computer, iPad, iPod or iPhone."
The Reading Rewards app is now available for free world-wide in the Apple App Store. Coming up in the next few months: expect a powerful app upgrade that will include new functionality for parents.
