If you're studying Mandarin Chinese and tired of boring textbook content, this app is for you. While most story book apps are meant for truly bilingual children (or parents), and aren't designed for actual study of the language, this app is different!

The AllSet Learning Picture Book Reader features:

* Simple swipe controls: swipe up and down on text to toggle, or across on pages to advance the story
* Simplified Chinese (can be switched on/off in settings)
* Traditional Chinese (can be switched on/off in settings)
* Pinyin (but not displayed at the same time as characters)
* Natural English translations by native speakers of English
* Original stories (no more Peter Rabbit, etc.)
* Original, interesting art by professional artists
* Native speaker audio in English and Chinese for all pages
* Free content bundled with the app
* Additional content available through in-app purchase

NOTE: iOS 6 or higher recommended. Using an older version of iOS may create problems with audio. (We're working on a solution for you iPad 1 users!)

Give this app a try and start studying something interesting. If you like what you see, support AllSet Learning by buying additional picture book content through the app.
