A good story can go a long way in helping anyone succeed. Whether it’s a startup’s about page or an video game’s story line, capturing the attention of your audience is a lot more effective with a compelling plot. Apps are the same way, and this selection of games that allow you to create your own story will keep you interested for hours.

Go ahead and download some of the following apps and share your story with the world before your phone battery dies.

Pango Storytime

With Pango Storytime, it will be hard to reduce the “screen time” for your kids because they’ll be creating their own stories. Pango and friends need your (or your child’s) attention to understand the message and interact with the picture. The catch is that you move the story along and discover the Pango adventure. Download Pango Storytime for free from the App Store.

Tentacles – Enter the Mind
