What we like about Applaydu

Applaydu is filled with content that covers a range of activity types. These are not just variations on a theme, either, but provide distinct play and learning experiences. 

In the Story Maker, children guide their character through branching stories to forge a tale that they can revisit in the app's bookshelf. Mixed in with these stories and playable separately are a variety of educational mini-games.

These mini-games are diverse in both their play styles and the skills and knowledge that they encompass. Each one is fun and stress-free. There might be a challenge in completing them but they do not punish the player or impose time limits or fix the number of lives the player has.

A feature around which some other apps have been built solely is augmented reality (AR). In the AR part of Applaydu, children use their devices as a portal into a space where the app's animated characters can engage with the real world. While still in its infancy, this technology still has an element of magic around it. Children, and adults too, find the way these fantastical elements appear in the physical world to be fascinating. It is simplicity itself to make this work so don't feel your child might struggle with it - if they can use the device's camera, they will be fine.
