Appy Chat & Giveaway
Developer: Jump App
When did you decide to develop this app?
History of this app is pretty interesting. It was October 2012, our Little House Decorator launch day. I was sitting at the computer, chatting on Facebook about our fresh released app. My wife Luiza, who is working with me at Jump App, came to me and said: How about we make the app where you can make your own puppet? We talked about it for some time and decided to do it. We have a list of apps we want to make and changing priorities all the time. Puppet Workshop get the highest priority the same day. Few days later we started to collect all the items you can use in the app. All of them are real objects which was photographed by us. Some of them we found at home, some we get from our family and friends and some was bought by Luiza and our coder Łukasz on their treasure hunt expedition to the local store. Almost all the socks and gloves belongs to my son Maks who is our toughest tester.
When did you first release this app?
Puppet Workshop was released on February 21st 2013
How long did it take you to develop this app?
I think it was about a month of work but we did it in parts which why it took us a time from October to February to release it. Originally we wanted to release it by the end of 2012 but due to some other works it took us a few months more.
What is your favourite feature?
Menu where you can choose sock or glove you want to decorate which is the gallery of puppets you made at the same time. It was our biggest goal. We wanted already made puppets to be visible at the start of the app. This part was changed few times before the final release.
What skills were you hoping to help the end user to develop?
The intention was to be entertaining. We wanted to spark the creativity and encourage kids to make a real life puppets. We hope that people using this app will think that it’s not hard to make their own, real puppet using the things they can find in their homes.
What age range would this app most suit?
I think it’s good for all the ages. Based on feedback from our happy users it is used by parents and kids. And this is just great
Are any new updates coming soon?
We got many ideas for updates but don’t want to make small ones. I think we will wait some time and make one, big update.
Puppet Workshop was created to develop your child’s creativity. Choose a sock or glove which will become a virtual puppet. Create the eyes, nose, mouth and hair using a variety of buttons, strands, ornaments, etc. Place the puppet on the background available in the app or upload your own background from camera roll on your iPad. Alternatively, your child may use some paper, markers, crayons and independently create his or her own background that you can use in Puppet Workshop.
