The final result is, on the other hand, a children’s app with a totally unique design and content
Stockholm, Sweden (PRWEB) June 15, 2011
Based on illustrator Malin Rosenqvist’s unique pictures and style, the Swedish app developer Wombi has created an app for kids with a circus theme. The app “A Day At The Circus” contains one story and 20 mini games. A paid version, as well as a free lite version was released on June 14th in iTunes.
The main idea behind “A Day At The Circus” was to use the app format in order to create a digital circus experience which is more than a traditional story book or a computer game. For example, children can have the story read for them and help the clown to stand on his hands by tilting the iPhone or iPad in the correct direction. The narrator and voice instructions mean that children can use the app on their own without needing an older person’s help.
“A Day At The Circus” is Wombi’s most ambitious app so far. The process to develop the app has been hard and time consuming. It all began with five blank sheets of paper. Illustrator Malin Rosenqvist was then instructed to create five circus pictures of her own choice. Based on these pictures a story, animations and the resulting games have been developed.
"To create an entire app’s artwork and design, content and functions based on a couple of finished illustrations has been a technical and creative challenge. The final result is, on the other hand, a children’s app with a totally unique design and content," says Markus Wedenborn, one of the creators.
“A Day At The Circus” works on iPhone and iPad and suits children from 3 years age. The app is available in a paid version ($2.99) and one free lite version. In the paid version, the entire circus experience with the story and all the games are included, while the lite version only contains the story. The full and lite versions are available in English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese and Swedish.
