I think the app is terrific. I love how bright and colorful everything is. I appreciate knowing the content in the app comes from early childhood development experts, as well as well known publishers such as Oxford University Press and the BBC. The app is free, which is terrific, and it’s great that there aren’t any in-app purchases to worry about.

The app has already won several awards, including:

  • Silicon Valley’s TiE50 Awards Winner, recognizing top startups internationally
  • Horizon Interactive Awards Gold Winner in Education
  • MobEx’s Best Mobile mCommerce Award
