iPad Mandarin story apps

February 19, 2011

For parents with iPads:

There’s an app that will read stories in Mandarin, with either simplified or traditional character subtitles. The apps are between $2.99 and 99 cents each. Great for car rides and a guilt-free way to let your kids get on the computer — they’re working on their Mandarin…

They’re from Taiwanese educational software company 5Q Channel.

To find them, type “5qchannel” in iTunes store to search them.

There are two icon colors, blue is for apps using traditional Chinese characters, red for simplified characters.

You can also find them at:
