Mobile software developer Tinybop on Friday announced that its suite of educational apps is now available on Android smartphones and tablets. The company’s newly introduced Android lineup includes The Earth, Homes, Simple Machines, Skyscrapers, and Weather, all of which are designed to help children learn about various topics. The apps aren’t listed on the Google Play Store individually but can instead be downloaded through Tinybop Explorer’s Pass, a mobile hub that serves as a library for the firm’s Android portfolio. The Brooklyn, New York City-based studio said it’s planning to expand its line of Android offerings in the near future, adding that Space is scheduled to be released this summer, alongside new Explorer’s Library and Digital Toys apps that will be available for download at a later date. The company didn’t provide a specific time frame to accompany that announcement, though the wording of its release suggests that at least one more educational app from its workshop (not counting Space) will launch for Android smartphones and tablets later this year. All of the studio’s upcoming apps will presumably also be available through Tinybop Explorer’s Library.
Just like its name suggests, the Tinybop Explorer’s Library offers the company’s mobile solutions through subscriptions, though consumers can try all of its apps on a week-long free trial. Following that period, the apps are available for an annual subscription that amounts to £8.99, i.e. $11.99 per year. The yearly subscription guarantees access to all of firm’s Android apps, including those that are yet to become available on Android devices. Tinybop is hoping that its newly introduced Android offerings will help it expand its educational mobile platform and help more parents educate their kids on various subjects. Many of the studio’s iOS apps have already been met with positive reception from consumers and the firm will likely be hoping to mimic that success on Android.
Interested users can download the Tinybop Explorer’s Library app from the Google Play Store by following the link below. The service is compatible with most devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and later builds of Google’s operating system. More details on Tinybop’s Android offerings will likely be available later this year.
