Read ‘A Story Before Bed’

A Story Before Bed lets you record a video of yourself reading a children’s book to be played back any time. Some grandparents want to be able to read books to their grandkids live. A Story Before Bed lets you read in realtime, too, using a Google+ Hangout. Grandkids in multiple cities? You can read to all of them at once using the app. And it’s completely free.
