Launched on iOS, Android and Windows Phone, GivingTales is a new charity application, animating classic Hans Christian Andersen tales with narration by famous actors. There are four tales in all, one of which is free and three of which are £3 paid purchases, with 30% of the proceeds going to UNICEF. A good call for a charitable way to keep a little one amused in the back of a car?
