Children’s App Award for “Laura’s Christmas Star”
The app “Laura’s Christmas Star”, developed by APPSfactory for Bastei Lubbe, has won an award. The website www.bestekinderapps.de honoured the application, which was made available on both the iOS and android app stores just in time for Christmas, as one of the best children’s books apps of 2013. The interactive app complements the story “Laura’s Christmas Star” with numerous animations, games, sound effects and Christmas music. Children love the elaborately designed and lovingly drawn illustrations, which come to life. The games, which are often only discovered after using the app several times, were also an important part of the app’s positive test results. The young app users will be entertained by the many games such as having to find hidden stars, a mix and match game where children are encouraged to give Laura and her brother new clothes and a car boot puzzle. These many extras justify the app price of €2.69. These are the reasons the website www.bestekinderapps.de awarded the “Goldene Biene” (Golden Bee) to “Laura’s Christmas Star” – a sign for excellent children’s apps.
