Spice lab, the mobile application development company of Spice group, is developing mobile applications for children.
Currently, the company is focusing on applications for kids in the age group of 1-4 years and 4-12 years, with major attention given to the former category.
The company plans to bring out 30 children’s applications and games in the next four to six months.
It has also built in a child lock function in these applications, which prevents kids from accidently making a call or opening other applications not meant for them.
For now there are five kids’ games available on both Nokia Ovi store and BlackBerry App World.
A mobile based education aid for kids in the age group of 0-2 years that helps them learn things like alphabets, numbers, object recognition etc.
It displays pictures matching the alphabet for example ‘A’ for Apple. It has a voice feature, and the best part is that you can lend your own voice, which would be more familiar to the child. (http://store.ovi.com/content/60631)
Memory is about remembering colour, fruits, vegetables, and alphabets. The kid needs to remember what he has seen earlier and has to open a pair of cards that have the same picture. (http://store.ovi.com/content/32539)
