Kolkata, India (PressExposure) May 28, 2014 -- Story Time For Kids, a well-acclaimed kids' app, is in the news once again. It has been named among the final nominees for this year's mBillionth Award South Asia. The developers at Teknowledge Software (the developer company) are quietly confident that they would be able to clear the final hurdle and bag the award.
According to officially released reports, Story Time For Kids beat off competition from well over 300 other mobile apps, on its way towards getting shortlisted for this prestigious award. All the finalists have been formally invited to New Delhi, where each of them will have to present their apps and give a short speech. Based on this final round, the mBillionth jury would decide to which company the crown for this year would go to.
A lot of hard work went into the submission process of this mobile storytelling app for kids for consideration at mBillionth. The senior content developer at Teknowledge revealed that, apart from filling up the form - the company created video presentations as well PDF documents - illustrating all the key features and functionality of Story Time. Finance and revenue data related to this popular Android and iPhone app for kids were also submitted.
So, what exactly tilted the opinion of the mBillionth judges towards Story Time For Kids during the preliminary rounds? Those at Teknowledge feel that this probably boils down to a combination of multiple factors. The sheer quality of this free app for kids - right from the wide range of digital storybooks (fairytales and original short stories) - has surely been a major contributor in this regard. The subtle educational elements that Story Time has for toddlers/preschoolers also worked in the app's favor. Finally, the panelists at mBillionth were probably impressed by the societal and economic benefits of the mobile application for kids.
The mobile app developers in charge of Story Time are no strangers to receiving professional awards and recognitions. Last year, the app won the coveted Adobe Award, along with multiple other prestigious awards - and honorable mentions in the international media. Standing on the threshold of another big milestone, the content creators and UI/UX designers of the application are ruling out all possibilities of complacency. In a media conference, they have stated that the past awards were of no value, as far as its chances of winning the annual mBillionth contest this year were concerned. It's a fresh challenge - the app has cleared the first stage - and the final stage awaits!
A four-member delegation will be sent from Teknowledge Software, for the day-long final presentation sessions at New Delhi. The team is already being trained on how to present the app in an interesting, insightful and creative manner. Team-members are also being acquainted with the type of queries that they might face on the D-Day. Story Time has made a positive initial impression on the mBillionth jury, and the mobile app company is keen to highlight every high point of Story Time on the all-important day.
According to the invitation mail, it is going to be a rigorous final day at New Delhi, for all the shortlisted candidates for the mBillionth Award. The Story Time developers are unfazed by the prospect of having to face up with several other innovative, high-quality apps, created by rival mobile application development companies. Instead, they are drawing confidence from the uniformly positive response that this engaging app for kids has obtained on Google Play Store, iTunes, as well as its official Facebook page. Whether this positive belief and confidence translates to final success would be something to watch out for.
