StoryChimes Children's Apps Hits 1 Million Downloads

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - Siena Entertainment is thrilled to announce that one million of their StoryChimes-branded children's storybook apps have now been downloaded through iTunes and the App Store. One million downloads is a significant milestone for any start-up.

"We couldn't be more excited about hitting this milestone. We are proud of our creative and technical talent that work so hard on all of our great Apps. We are looking forward to the next one million in the near future," says Nick Bonomo, CEO.

StoryChimes is a leading brand of interactive children's Apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. StoryChimes stories will debut on Android devices within the next month.

"It's a great time to be in the App business, especially Children's Apps," said Keith Lewis, Chief Operating Officer. "We believe Apps allow independent children's book publishers, authors, and illustrators an opportunity to make their work available quickly and on a massive scale to children's book consumers. It's a game changer for them," he said.

In addition to releasing a host of new stories soon, Siena has some great new music Apps, partnerships, and new media content coming in 2011.

"We're excited with the opportunity to take one of our original properties to an animated platform... the first step in our transmedia strategy," commented Justin James, Chief Creative Officer.
