Spotlight Stories App For Android – Let Your Kids Explore The Wild!

buggy nightsWe were given the chance to check out Motorola Moto X with the Google’s Spotlight Stories app installed along with custom wrap and wall paper. This cute and interactive world was built for any imagination and lets anyone become immersed into a new world. Spotlight Stories is a first-of-its-kind interactive storytelling experience that immerses you in a 360-degree animated adventure that is controlled by looking around but through your phone. So holding your phone in front of you, as you look around your room with it, you can actually explore 2 different worlds.

The kids have a little too much fun that I have to remind them it is a Smartphone. But luckily there is not a forward and backward movement which makes it great to give them on the road during a short trip. We seem to take many short and sometimes long car trips with kids and in Southern California sometimes we have to be creative with entertaining them, and we can only sing so much!

Spotlight Stories was created by Google-owned Advanced Technologies and Projects group (ATAP) and was built with the help and support of Oscar-winning former PIXAR animators and children’s book illustrators.Its fun seeing them and even when I find something new in the scenery like bugs scurrying on the ground, to owls in trees, there is so much going on the forest at night and also on the other Spotlight Series Windy Day.

The kids get so captivated by the fact they can really explore like a virtual reality and they totally love computer tech and the Moto X Spotlight Series really encourages discovery and exploration. This is a great way to take advantage of the phones capabilities and its great to offer this experience through a Smartphone app for kids. Spotlight Stories is available on the MotoX.

This month they have released the second chapter of Spotlight Series titled Buggy Night. This new Spotlight Story lets the viewer become a midnight detective on the case in the dark Forest with just a flashlight and a frog. It is all brought to life in Caldecott-winning illustrator Jon Klassen’s forest.

Download Spotlight Series for your Android device and check out what they have next in store!
