Developer Alejandro Reyero has just let us know that his iOS app, Sage Kids, has now been ported to BlackBerry 10. It's also free for a limited time to celebrate the BB10 launch! Sage Kids is a children's learning app that comes with 3 different games to play: Match, Puzzles and Writing.
Here is a little bit about what Alejandro had to say about bringing the app from iOS to BlackBerry 10:
This app is a port from the iPhone / iPad version which originally was made with Cocos2d-iPhone in Objective-C. Now it's a pure C++ app using Cocos2d-X, and we are so happy with the result and source code maintainability compared with the Objective-C version that we are going to use Cocos2d-X for all future releases for Apple devices. Developing in the Eclipse based Momentics is a DREAM compared with XCode.
- PUZZLES: improve a child's problem solving and reasoning skills. It helps them to see whole-part relationships; increases their visual awareness and can teach them color recognition, shape recognition, and more. It also trains the hand-eye coordination.
- MATCH GAME: it enhances their memory skills and also their capacity to identify shapes and colors. The illustrations and sounds will help them recognize the animals and the sounds they make.
- LEARNING TO WRITE: to practice the drawing of the letters they are learning at school now, with the help of well-known and simple words. Moreover, they will practice the fine motor skills of their fingers, a key ability for writing. Games to learn while having fun!
