Hundreds of original stories are on offer, told through the lens of characters messaging each other

Amazon has announced a new app that offers children's short stories in chat style. Amazon Rapids has hundreds of original tales aimed at kids aged 7-12, with genres including adventure, fantasy, humor, mystery, science fiction and sports.

The stories are brought to life one message at a time as they are told by having characters chatting with each other. Features such as a built-in glossary that lets kids look up the definition and pronunciation of a word, and a “read to me” mode that reads the stories aloud, are aimed at enhancing children's confidence and encouraging them to read independently.
