App Camp Dust or Magic 2011Very excited to be at the Dust or Magic App Camp where the best, brightest and most exciting kids app developers are over the next couple of days. Well, at least some of them.

Exciting things in eBooks here, Crab Hill Press previewed two beautifully designed : My Dad Drives A Roller-coaster and Nash Smasher. Also had a quick look at another ebook which looked fun, Count Broccula from RipplFX.

I was also thrilled to see a new product from The Guys In The Booth which will be released in June, Monster Coloring Book. This is a beautifully designed app, and as soon as it’s launched I’ll try to hit up the “guys” for some promo codes. In the meantime, check out their app Build A Train.

I also checked out Stack The States by Dan Russell-Pinson; it’s a great geography app with a fun game feel to it – it made the adults who played with it act like kids – and that’s a good sign. I am way overdue in reviewing Stack The States in full, but I will – just know that I highly recommend it.

Finally, Duck Duck Moose shared insights into designing apps for preschoolers. We’re been a fan of Duck Duck Moose from the beginning of the blog and so were thrilled to see that they’re coming out with another app soon. We got a sneak peak, and it looks brilliant, but I can’t say more for now. It’s top secret….!
