Karachi: Nokia and AT and T Innovators 2011 Contest’, aiming to inspire creativity across the globe, recently awarded the 2nd prize to Animal 101 application submitted by Ten Pearls, a global application development company owned and run by a Pakistani developer.
Ten Pearls has been honoured as the winner for developing Animal 101, an interactive and user-friendly educational application engineered towards children and parents.
Animal 101 is a learning based application that aims to teach children ages 3 to 8 to learn about animals by engaging them in fun and interactive games. Animal 101 with its strikingly appealing visuals, brilliant graphics and inspiring sounds, engages children into an entertaining educational experience.
