Interactive Touch Revolutionizes Creation of iPad Apps for Kids
Free, online platform enables anyone to create interactive content for iPad in a matter of hours.
San Francisco, CA – October 18, 2011– Today Interactive Touch announced a groundbreaking platform that has enabled the company and its partners to bring 30 kids iPad apps to market in just 6 months, without writing a single line of custom code.
This game changing online platform allows authors and publishers to create fully interactive titles – filled with touch-triggered effects like sounds, animations, puzzles, and peek-a-boo – free of charge and in less time than it takes to create the art itself. Contrast this to a typical $25,000 development budget and it is easy to see why publishers have been lining up to try out this platform.
Red Chair Press (RCP), a award-winning children’s book publisher whose mission is to create learning through laughter, teamed up with Interactive Touch to develop six interactive titles–the Funny Bone Readers’ series launched a mere six weeks after the two companies agreed to work together.
“Children love a good story and when an educator or a parent is reading to a child, it’s natural to ask the child to point to the pictures, touch the character,” said Keith Garton, president of RCP. ”And the Interactive Touch Books really bring the experience of interacting with a story alive.” Because the titles are created with tremendous speed and nominal cost, RCP anticipates releasing the remaining 18 titles from their series before Christmas.
This is the first of what Interactive Touch expects to be a long line of content partnerships, and is off to a great start. “The Funny Bone Readers’ series has already been a huge hit with our users,” said Ameen Saafir, founder and CEO of Interactive Touch. “In Red Chair Press we found an award-winning partner with a similar vision for children’s media. We look forward to working together on the rest of the series.”
In addition to this partnership, the company has also signed over 100 authors to agreements for future work and expects to have as many titles available on the Interactive Touch Books by the end of the year.
