Sydney, New South Wales Australia (PressExposure) September 24, 2014 -- Teks Mobile Australia will soon rectify one of the biggest puzzles in its app portfolio. The Android version of Story Time For Kids - the mobile storytelling app that has earned worldwide acclaim - would be brought at par with its iOS counterpart. More reasons for Android users to rejoice!
For over an year, this free app for kids has been eliciting polarised opinions at iTunes and Google Play Store. While the reviews of the iPhone/iPad version has been universally positive (the app has even bagged a couple of prestigious design awards), the response has been a lot more ho-hum for the Android version. In fact, there have been quite a few downright unfavorable user-reviews at the Play Store. Executives from the mobile apps company in Australia are hoping that this unhealthy discrepancy would disappear soon.
For that to happen, Teks recently recruited a team of highly-experienced graphic designers, animations experts and UI/UX designers. The Sydney-based app company had recently conducted a survey among the users of Story Time - the results of which have suggested that substandard quality of animation was probably the principal cause for the Android version's relative unpopularity till date. Things are set to change now.
A reliable source from the company informed that the mobile app testing procedures for the revamped, improved version of this reading app for kids would be extremely thorough. The Android platform, in any case, has a reputation of having many apps with malware - and Story Time would provide complete assurance to prospective users (i.e., parents) on that regard. A four-member testing team has already been formed for this purpose. Story Time has been acknowledged as the best iPhone app for kids - and there's no earthly reason why it cannot get featured at the Android app store too.
Teks Mobile Australia is also working on 8 new digital story files - which would be released simultaneously on the iOS and the Android versions. Since customization might be an issue, all the screens/pages of the stories would be tested at different resolution levels - so that users of all smartphone models get uniformly excellent experience. The in-house app developers are working on optimizing the fun-meets-learning app for kids for the newly-released iOS 8 platform.
Not surprisingly, the mobile app developers from Teks have remained silent about the fate of the Blackberry version of Story Time For Kids. It can be assumed that they are waiting for the response of users to the upcoming Blackberry 10.3 mobile platform. If it does not create much of a stir and BB continues to sink further - the kids' app might as well be pulled out from Blackberry App World.
For now though, all the focus is on making the Android version of Story Time better than ever before. Given how good the iPhone version of the app is, this should not be a tough task for the developers and designers at Teks.
