CBeebies Storytime is a BAFTA-nominated interactive storybook application I built with BBC Children’s. The app was released for iOS and Android platforms across both phone and tablet, from a single codebase. The app was built in AIR, and serves as both a story player and constantly-updated download platform, all of which we built from scratch.

The application has been downloaded just under 2,000,000 times and has seen tens of millions of stories read – the application continues to have new content created for it, two years on.

I put together a technical blog post for the BBC Academy, which can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/academy/technology/article/art20141023142318928
