Sudden success for the Swedish Indie Studio Tales & Dice
Malmo, Sweden – The new kids categories in iOS 7 proved to be a jackpot for Tales & Dice. Only a week after the release of the new App Store categories, their very first app, Hanna & Henri, is now spotted on the premium place in Apple’s Featured Apps for ages 5 & under. Now sharing the spotlight with their Swedish colleagues Toca Boca and other great and successful companies.
The founder Fredrik Sjolin is delighted. “We were utterly surprised. To be selected in the ‘Featured Apps’ is a dream come true for any app developer. We are humbled and proud to have our first app selected as being best for kids.”
David Norrman, the company’s marketing manager points out his view. “I think our main strength is our unique graphical approach. Our illustrator Christer Degerman is a really talented guy! Many apps look alike but our stands out in the crowd.”
Apart from the upcoming sequel of Hanna & Henri the next step for Tales & Dice is to release the app on other platforms such as Android and Windows Mobile. Fredrik Sjolin is looking forward to the expansion. “It has been said that less people are willing to pay for apps on Android devices, but we firmly believe we got what it takes to be successful outside iOS as well.”
Time will tell if they will succeed. Those into apps for kids or just curious can find the interactive storybook Hanna & Henri on the App Store, or in a near future on Google Play.
