I’ll go out on a limb here and say: I bet most of us like kids. Otherwise, why develop for them? I also predict that most of us have access to children, either as parents, teachers or caregivers.
And: I’ve got a strong hunch that most of us did at least some informal testing of our storybook app content with the kids in our lives. Did you assemble a group of children in a formal focus group/testing environment, or did you simply run through your creation with your own kid(s) in your lap at bedtime and gauge their response?
If you aren’t a writer, illustrator or developer, which currently-available apps or ebooks are favorites with your kids (either at home or in the classroom)? Let’s chat about our experiences in sharing our own development process with actual age-appropriate audiences during the next #storyappchat, this Sunday (August 26) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific.
And just for fun: if it’s been a while since you got the original feedback from your kids, how about revisiting your app with them before the chat, and be prepared to share the new feedback with us. Just use the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter to take part in the chat–see you then!
