There’s one question we get asked a lot: when is Magic Town coming to iPhone? The more you asked, the more we hurried, and so we’re pleased to announce a brand new experience from the same talented team of storytellers who created the iPad version – our iPhone app Magic Town Stories.
Available for iPhone and iPod Touch, Magic Town Stories takes the amazing stories at the heart of Magic Town and delivers them in an iPhone-sized bookshelf format. All the same stories, the same professional voice acting and the same beautiful animated illustrations, but now optimised for a smaller screen. Your child’s favourite stories are now more portable than ever!

Magic Town has gone mobile! Now, in addition to visiting MagicTown.com, you can share story time with your kids on the iPad.
The Magic Town app for iPad features the same content as the website. More than 50 stories… fables, fairy tales, and popular series. You’ll see Izzy and Max to guide you around the site. And Louis is at the tree, ready to share the story of the day.
But here’s where things get fun for kids. Instead of having to point and click with a mouse, they just tap the screen with their finger. Tap on a house, and you discover all the characters, stories and games inside. Tap on a flashing illustration in a story, and advance to the next screen.
And best of all for parents… you can now take Magic Town on the road with you. No need to pack a stack of books for that car ride or long trip.
The app is free to download, and there are more than 20 free stories. Beyond that, you can buy additional stories on a one by one basis. Or if you want full access, you can subscribe for one month, six months or a year.
So pack your bags. It’s time to hit the road with Magic Town. Just don’t forget your iPad charger.

One of the coolest things about Magic Town is that every day you get a free book to read and play with. Here’s how it works:
When you visit Magic Town, you’ll meet Louis The Storyteller. Louis is a wise old lion who has travelled all over the world collecting stories. When he arrived in Magic Town, he planted his staff in the ground and brought all his stories to this new world. You can see that tree right in the middle of the Magic Town landscape.
Now it’s up to you to set the books free, and make the Magic Town landscape grow. Once you open a book, it will end up in one of the houses in the scene.
Every day Louis will have a free story of the day. And if you subscribe, you’ll get to keep that story forever. So give it a try. See what Louis has for you. And if you like what you read… go ahead … subscribe to get full access to the site.
See you in Magic Town, Where Stories Live.
