Keeping the pre-k set edutained...

Fun education and
entertainment apps for kids.

Or is it funducated?

Kidster is a growing suite of apps designed primarily for 3 to 6 year olds. Kids can have adventures learning English, unleash their creativity with interactive coloring books and keep entertained with fun and educational videos localized for their language, country and market. Each app was developed cross-platform for iOS and Android.

The primary challenges were creating user interfaces that could be easily navigated by pre-readers and designing environments and activities that would engage kids yet still be seen as having real educational value by parents. The business team also required that the apps follow a subscription model. When dealing with Apple especially, this sets a very high bar for getting approval since these apps are not traditional subscription types (periodicals, life-style apps, business services, etc) and are marketed to children. In order to successfully get the apps passed, I worked directly with staff from Apple's app approval team.
