Meet the team : Science – Journalist, Filmmaker & App & Game Developer:
I studied marine biology and I work now as a TV Science Journalist for the German & Swiss Television. Besides this, the ability to develop and publish interactive apps, which let children try something that is not possible with e.g. watching a film, a book or toy, has always fascinated me. The apps should a bit educational, and and a lot of fun for our little ones to play. I think the child’s education does not have to stop after school. Interactive Stories for the iPhone or the iPad keep the youngsters mind active outside the classroom. But nevertheless, I believe that reading and playing outside are fundamental for the development of children. So, my apps are not supposed to replace these activities but complement them.
