We recently told you about Rivet, a free kid's reading app developed by Area 120, Google's experimental product division. As the software is still in beta, it is continually improving with better features and UI improvements. The app was originally developed for tablets because it provides a better experience and could not be installed on mobile phones through the Play Store. The APK could still be loaded on handsets, but the user interface did not look good compared to larger screens. The application has just been updated to officially support smartphones.
Rivet now works on most Android devices as well, offering more than 1
Studying is a great way to teach children how to read, but also to learn how to use a mobile app without having to deal with complex tasks menus and lists. As the software is still in beta, we expect the final release to add more features and books. In the meantime, it remains a very useful and ingenious application that we recommend to your little ones.
You can download Rivet from the Play Store or download it from APK Mirror if the first option does not work for you. I had to load the APK sideways on my phone when I live in France.

The software is now available for Android, iOS and Chrome OS in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India and Brazil. Nigeria, Philippines, Bangladesh and Pakistan and can be downloaded from the Play Store via the following link.
