ITV Signed Stories iOS App
Designing and developing the world’s first animated storytelling iOS app for both British and American Sign Language with ITV.
Signed Stories is an iPhone and iPad application designed and developed for ITV SignPost by Komodo Digital and published by ITV Broadcasting Limited.
The iOS app was designed from scratch with an easy to use, intuitive navigation that features big touch points so that watching stories and playing games is easy and fun for everyone.
Learners can personalise their bookshelf with their own name, and further customise the look and feel of the app by choosing from one of nine beautifully detailed backgrounds, complete with a selection of brightly coloured characters.
The app is available to download from the App Store and comes complete with one free story.
Further stories are available to buy from the Signed Stories store, via Apple’s in-app purchasing mechanism and charged to a parent, teacher or carer’s iTunes account. There are currently over 100 books available to buy with a choice of either American Sign Language or British Sign Language, with more on their way.
The app integrates with ITV Signed Stories’ Content Management System that powers the Signed Stories website. This means that the video files, the book cover and the other assets for each new story only need to be uploaded to the CMS once, streamlining the production and distribution process.
There is an iPhone version available for reading stories on the move, which can synchronise purchases so that they’re also available if you own an iPad.
