Awarded '2018 Best Children's App' at the UK App Awards

4 star review from Common Sense Media, National Literacy Trust Approved

And 5 Gold Stars at independent review, Educational App store said:

‘This is an interactive diary app that encourages young people to document their adventures and their lives in an interactive way whilst improving their communication and literacy skills in the process.’

Check out all of the cool things about DiaryZapp:

- There are no in-app purchases or adverts, not one. Kids can earn points the more times they write to unlock a treasure trove of stickers

- Each child gets their own ‘Zappicon’ creature designed to help them through the app. They can style their unique Zappicon to any shape, size or colour and take a selfie with their creation.

- If they just feel the urge to draw instead of write children can get creative with a full artbox of colouring pens, brushes and special effects tools. Little ones can draw and make marks - capturing those early special pictures.

- When they’ve finished, their entry can be saved and shared with close family and friends at the touch of a button via a closed network administered by the Chief Adult

- Children can import photos of their adventures into their page, then squiggle moustaches, unicorns, footballs and fairies over them to add that final perfect touch.

- Help and high fives are given to your child by the Zappicon to guide them if they get stuck choosing what to write about, their trusty Zappicon will also suggest words to boost vocabulary.

CREATE
DiaryZapp is a space for your child to capture their daily adventures, broaden their literacy skills and share their creations every day. Watch your child’s confidence grow every time they ZAPP.

TELL YOUR STORY
From magnificent dens, to camping at Grandma’s, there are no boundaries to the stories they can tell.

CRAFT
But the creativity doesn’t stop there. Your children can use DiaryZapp’s extensive paint and drawing tools. Import their favourite photographs from the day and have fun editing them with the stickers they’ll have won for ‘zapping’ their entries.

We’ve teamed up with Photobox so you can easily print off your child’s favourite memories, create holiday mementos or even build an entire book for the whole family to read and enjoy.

SHARE
By adding a list of pre-approved email addresses it’s easy for your children to share their day with the family. Grandma can even leave a positive message to praise them for their writing if she wants to. It’s easy for your children to share their day with fellow DiaryZappers via our secure app-to-app sharing.

LEARN
We’ve designed DiaryZapp to boost kids learning by stealth! Practise their mark making skills, increase their vocabulary through suggested alternative words, improve spelling through practice. DiaryZapp is an English learning game to help children's literacy development through positive affirmation.
