“Doodle Tales is more than just another doodling app… It feeds on creativity, and it's guaranteed to be both fun and educational for your child" - App Bite
Hampshire, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 May 2012
Europress, a leading family video games producer, is today announcing the launch of Doodle Tales – a new mobile app that’s set to revolutionize the way kids can express their creativity. Best of all, the fully functional version is available completely free.
Combining a full featured, best of class, art package; an intuitive story making tool; and the ability to easily, and safely, share Doodles and Tales with the inbuilt social community, Doodle Tales gives kids the freedom to really let their creative juices flow. The app was created by BAFTA Award-winning developer Extra Mile Studios – the studio behind the first Teletubbies app, and the bestselling Isaac Newton's Gravity.
Stuart Chiplin, Head of Publishing, Europress, said:
“Our goal with Doodle Tales is to build a global kids community focused on creativity, and giving the app away for free means every kid with access to the technology can join the community. Additional content can be unlocked through the in-app purchase mechanism, but every single creative feature is completely free.”
Six content packs will be available at launch – each with a number of themed stickers, backgrounds and pattern brushes. Regular updates will be released with additional branded content to supplement launch packs from popular kids franchises such as LazyTown (the multi award-winning show that promotes healthy activities) and Numberjacks (the top rated CBBC numeracy hit).

Publishing critically acclaimed software under the Art Attack, Spot the Dog, and Fun School brands, it has sold more than 2 million copies of software before falling under the stewardship of Koch Media after ownerships spells with Hasbro then Atari.
