The Cloud Factory, an animated children's picture book app developed by Dalmation Studios, officially launched in the iTunes store this week. The Cloud Factory engages children to interact with a relatable story about a young girl and her grandfather, in which he teaches her how clouds are made.
"I wanted to reinvent the way children read and listen to stories," says Steven Andrew, President of Dalmation Studios. "The Cloud Factory engages children by telling a compelling story which they can participate with."
The story begins as the young girl, Luna, patiently waits on a train ride to visit her Grandfather. After some catching up between the two, the Grandfather explains that he works at The Cloud Factory, and promises to teach Luna the detailed steps in the creation of a cloud. Children will follow along by performing various actions such as swipe, tilt, and shake, to move forward in the story. These actions are used to gather the ingredients to make a cloud, and bring them to the factory to be mixed.
"By requiring them to perform actions to move the story along, the app is keeping the attention of the child; making learning easier, and more fun than ever," Andrew adds.
The Cloud Factory 1.01 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category. For more information, download the app or visit the app's website.
