Our new kids app: Pocket Pup

We have been working on our new application Pocket Pup, that is aimed at the younger user and should be available in the app store really soon.

The user can train their new puppy using our gesture based system that triggers our fantastic animations. Once they have learned the basics of training (making the dog sit, feeding the dog etc) Then it is their job to keep him happy and healthy.

We also have implemented a story book that that encourages our users to read the task and then perform an action. Whilst the puppy is performing the action, they have to capture a picture of the Puppy in a specific pose, that will then be saved to the users picture book.

I will let the images speak for themselves Thanks for looking!

This game looks nice. It think it can be catchy for small kids.

The focus groups we have tested with all love the application. we have made a lot of changes to the app through the use of focus groups to tailor it to our demographic.

It is now in the hands of Apple
