'The Sira' is an innovative new storytelling app that is designed to make it easier than ever for children to listen to and enjoy the story of the Prophet Mohammed during the month of Ramadan.
Developed by Syrian app developer Ayham Gorani, this storytelling app is designed to take age-old Islamic tales and stories and package them in a format that makes them easily digestible by children. What's great about this app is that the stories it recites are historically correct as per Islamic texts, but are told in a way that they are engaging to children. The app uses voice-overs in both English and Arabic, with cartoon-style illustration boosting visual stimulation.
Ultimately, this storytelling app is a great example of how religious tales can be conveniently packaged and conveyed using smartphone app interfaces.
