Kids and Apps

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

KidScreen’s iKids conference yesterday was great.  Lots of solid insight into the iPhone, iPad and Android market for apps with a particular focus on kids media.  Met with reps from all the main digital ebook developers, game studios and even some brands.  Got us going on some ideas for some of the apps we have in the works.  More to come.

Little Pim Word Bag iPhone app

The Little Pim Word Bag iPhone app is still getting positive coverage from the press and blogs. Just today Celebrity Baby Scoop posted about it. Please note, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Justin Bieber are not in the app but the last we checked, they are celebrities. Animax Entertainment developed the app but has nothing to do with those famous people.

As seen in Geek Dad, The Boston Globe had a nice overview article of the market for mobile apps specifically made for toddlers. An interesting factoid is that 60% of the Top 25 apps in the iTunes store’s education category are target to the toddler set.

We’re going to be launching the Little Pim iPhone app pretty soon – Animax will let you know when it’s ready.
