Easter Egg Hunt Brings Surprises and a Powerful Teaching Tool for iOS
"Alexandria, Virginia, -- April 19th, 2011- This Easter season Vito Technology, a renowned developer of educational apps, is happy to present a new update for Geo Walk with Easter Egg Hunt for inspired kids as well as curious adults. Integrated gaming element promises to widen your knowledge of geography and the most interesting things all around the world with Geo Walk for iOS.
Geo Walk is a popular encyclopedia of fun facts recently renovated and constantly receiving new packs of items. The interface is very simple - you spin a virtual globe and pictures of the most curious facts appear as you hover over specific countries.
What does it have to do with Easter you will ask? A special scavenger hunt was prepared by the developer. Ten of the five hundred items have unexpected details on their pictures, for instance you might find a smiley face in the middle of a swamp or Auguste Lumiere with an iPhone and those who do find them will have a chance to take part in a contest the developer hosts on their blog.
Vito's team confesses that testing is a big part of the development process, moreover they always test their ideas and novelties on their own kids first. "If it's not interesting for us, why would it be useful to anyone else? We try to make the best of the many educational opportunities Apple products present." - says Victor Toporkov, Vito's CEO - "After all, the kids are the future."
So make sure to prepare for this Easter season and have a fun educational app at hand and don't forget to check out Vito's blog for Easter Egg Hunt contest.
