Amazon’s chat-style fiction app, Amazon Rapids, is now free, giving parents and kids unlimited access to the hundreds of stories in its catalog. Previously, the company charged $2.99 monthly for that privilege. Some of these stories will also be available to listen to through Alexa’s Storytime mode, which was launched last summer.

Amazon Rapids would be a good way to offer content on Amazon Fire tablets, Android, and iOS devices. Unfortunately, these means that the content isn’t available on Windows or Macintosh machines. This also includes Chromebooks, unless your Chromebooks support Android apps.
