Treehouse for Kids: "Are We There Yet" Insurance

January 18, 2012 Pivotal Labs

For most of us over the age of 25 there was a certain learning curve associated with the adoption of the Internet, computers, and other new technologies. But for the younger generations who have been born under the technology sign, hard copies of magazines and libraries are quickly becoming foreign concepts (as evidenced here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXV-yaFmQNk).

 

Because of these increasingly tech-savvy toddlers, applications for young children make up a small, but growing segment in the app stores. Here at Xtreme Labs we think it would be a mistake to ignore this segment. That is why we jumped at the chance to make a children’s app with Corus Entertainment, one of Canada’s premiere broadcasters and a leader in the digital media space.

 

The Corus Treehouse Streaming Video app for kids offers parents the ability to give their kids unlimited access to hundreds of hours of their favorite television shows from Treehouse TV. Content from thirteen of your children’s favorite shows are already available on the app, with more being added all the time. Franklin & Friends, Babar, The Cat in the Hat, Dora the Explorer, Blue’s Clues, and Max & Ruby are some of the shows available on demand from your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

 

Using the Treehouse app is simple. You can create playlists of your children’s favorite episodes, check the Treehouse live television schedule from directly within the app, and there is even a colouring book! Choose from 6 different colouring pages and a full set of virtual crayons. When they’re done? Save their masterpiece, or email it to Grandma and print it out for the fridge.

 

We also had the privilege of working with Corus on their Franklin Talks application for iOS, and Franklin’s Shape Slider application for iOS. Both of these applications let your children get a little more familiar with their friend Franklin while providing hours of entertainment. Drag and drop shapes on Franklin’s Shape Slider to help your children develop shape recognition and enhance motor skills, and use Franklin Talks to encourage your children to practice their verbal skills! Check them out today.

 

Having your children’s favorite shows on demand, and on a portable device is what we like to call “are we there yet” insurance. Treehouse for iOS is currently rated in the top 100 apps for iOS, get your copy of the Treehouse today: http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/treehouse-video/id408405756?mt=8
