The Kids FlashCards app that I published last month turned out to be quite popular in Google Play Store.. Thanks +Anjana for asking 🙂 The app has crossed 2500 installs so far and is being used world-wide in countries like US, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore etc., Of more than 1000 apps in Kids Flashcards category, the app is listed in the 9th place in Google Play Store. I got emails from app users praising the app and how useful it is to them. Some even said that the app was their kids’ favourite lunchtime routine.. All this positive feedback motivated me and the excitement was out of the world when some folks at my office called and thanked me for the app 🙂 All this pushed me to come up with one more app for kids.
On a lazy weekend, as usual I was playing with my lil angel.. I took her outside our home and noticed a something new… Whenever my overzealous daughter saw dog, crow or parrot, she screams Kakka Kakka or bow bow boww on top of her voice until the poor animal goes out of her sight 😉 That is when I decided to that my next app would be exclusively for animals. Despite her busy schedule (running behind our daughter all the time 😉 ) my wifey helped me collect a lot of pictures of domestic and wild animals, birds, baby animals etc., and edited them all to fit them in the mobile layout.
It will not be fair if I didn’t mention this special person +Balaganesh who extended his help in the UI design for this app.. He spent a weekend and gave me the UI design with all the necessary specifications/icons.. I was pumped up after seeing the super make over of the app and immediately worked on giving life to the UI design.. I burnt midnight oil for nearly 5 nights to get to a working version of the app.
Here are some details about the app,
