What’s on my mind

3… 2… 1… App launch

February 26, 2014

I have single handedly stopped the madness when it comes to ugly, obnoxious iPad games for toddlers.

OK, it wasn’t single handedly. My brother, the father of two small children and a serial entrepreneur, approached me in 2012 to pitch his idea of a counting game for toddlers. I worked with designer Erin Allen to produce storyboards and concepts for a stylish, fun app that both kids and parents could agree on. We then turned to New Orleans app developers Susco to program the game using the Unity platform.

The recently released Count Down iPad app teaches toddlers basic counting skills with encouragement from their space-alien friends Amelia and Vladimir. Players can learn numbers from 1-1,000!
