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.

Animax Entertainment announced a new preschool targeted iPhone app that we have in development with the folks over at Little Pim. Created in 2006 by Julia Pimsleur Levine, Little Pim is an award-winning foreign language immersion series for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. And yes – that name probably sounds familiar — Julia Pimseleur Levine’s father, Dr. Paul Pimsleur, created one of the most popular and acclaimed audio teaching language methods for adults. The iPhone app Animax is developing will expand on the DVD series and take advantage of the mobile platform. Kids on cellphones? A “pacifier app”? The future is now.
