Kindergarter, a new app for elementary-schoolers, has been a hit in the US and Canada.
Now, it is being rolled out to the rest of the world, with its parent company Apple making the app available for use in over 200 countries.
The app is based on the French word kindergaster, meaning a pair of shoes, and is a hybrid between an elementary-level app and a higher-level interactive class.
Kindergaster is available for free on the App Store, and its developer, Pekka Kvart, says it will soon launch a premium version for around $10 per month, though its pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet.
It offers up to 50 videos, each one focused on one child in a classroom, and the app has a total of 2,500 videos in its library.
Pekkawaster, the app’s parent company, is a Finnish startup that was spun out of Apple in 2011.
In the US, it’s currently available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play store.
Pekskaster will be rolled out in many countries around the world in the coming weeks.
It’s the latest app to have received a major update in recent months, and while it’s still a learning app, it looks to be a step up from the ones that already exist in the market.
Pekingkaster’s parent, Kvartskården, told The Verge that they’re using the Kvarten word to describe the app and that it “means that it’s different than the other learning apps”.
The app has been downloaded more than 7 million times in the first week of availability in the USA, and Pekkskaster is set to become a top-selling app for the first time in its life.
“The main thing we’re focusing on is how to make it so it’s more than just a learning and assessment app,” Pekkaskever told The Guardian.
“It’s a learning experience that’s more fun, interactive, and more focused on children.”
He says that the app will soon be able to teach children more advanced vocabulary.
The apps are still in early stages, so there’s no guarantee that it will be a hit.
However, it seems that the popularity of the app is having a positive effect on other learning programs.
“Kindergasters popularity is growing very quickly in the United States and Canada,” Pekskovskaskever said.
“For example, we are now seeing a big spike in Kindergasters usage in schools.
We’re seeing more teachers who use the app than they were last year.
And this is great because there’s less money in school to teach,” he said.
Pestskaster has already had its first major user feedback.
Peekskaster received a whopping 9,000 votes in its first week in the app store, and nearly 200 votes in the past month.
This is a sign that it is gaining traction in the learning community, says Kvarnaskevin.
“We’re also seeing a lot of positive feedback from our users.
We also see that there is a strong desire among users for a more personalized, focused app.
There’s also a strong sentiment amongst users for having a more structured learning experience,” he told The Daily Beast.
