Pixel Press Interactive Platform

If you grew up with side-scrolling run-and-jump video games like Super Mario Brothers or Sonic the Hedgehog, you probably spent a little bit of time imagining what it would be like to make your own. With Pixel Press ($10), you too can create your own video game (without ever writing one line of code). Start with their downloadable grid paper by drawing your own paths, obstacles, moving platforms, spikes, and more. Then scan it into the app using your iOS or Android device — the app takes it from there, letting you test, design, and even play your creation. Once you’re satisfied with the game, share it with the world and give others the opportunity to beat your high score. Read more about the Pixel Press Interactive Platform HERE

Drawnimal App

This creative new app Drawnimal shows that drawing with a pencil on paper and digital apps are not incompatible technologies. The iPad/iPhone app not only teaches the alphabet and animals to children, but cunningly encourages kids to draw around their devices to create a complete image of an animal that will then perform an animated action. For more info, go to Drawnimal.com or download it from the Apple store.
