Choose from over 2,000 books made for children.
Google has officially made Rivet available after a beta phase. Rivet is a mobile app that teaches young kids how to read. Rivet offers more than 2,000 books for free, which are all categorized by topics and by the level of reading. The app can also listen to how kids read, which in turn can offer the right pronunciation of each word if needed.
The app also includes some visual aids that would appear if the kid mispronounces a word. From there a small button pops up where kids can listen to the correct way of saying it. Early reviews have already praised the app, which was beneficial to kids of all ages.
Design-wise, Rivet is easy to navigate and use so children and their parents wouldn’t have a hard time using it. Rivet at the moment only supports pronunciation guides on a few titles, but Google did say more book will be available soon. The feature is also only available on the Android app, with iOS support coming soon.
Rivet can be downloaded for Android and iOS devices and yes, it’s free.
