London, United Kingdom – NigglyNoo Ltd is excited to announce an iPad app for new parents, which is currently being developed and is due to be released in the App Store in mid September 2012. Designed by an Occupational Therapist, the Baby Development Activities App allows parents to put their knowledge of baby development to the test with a fun and interactive quiz. It also provides a range of activities that parents can do with their baby to stimulate development and help them reach their developmental milestones.
Unlike other baby development apps, the Baby Development Activities app provides a detailed milestone map for every month in baby’s first year. The milestones address all areas of baby development, including physical, cognitive and language development. In addition to this, parents have easy access to activities that they are able to do with their baby to help baby reach each particular milestone. The activities provided do not require any specialised toys or equipment but are easy to do and have been designed to encourage parents to stimulate all aspects of their baby’s development and facilitate interaction and bonding.
Having run workshops for new mothers, NigglyNoo Ltd has found that many parents seem to have unrealistic expectations of what their baby will be able to achieve and when. The interactive Milestone quiz gives parents the opportunity to find out if their expectations of their baby’s development are indeed accurate and realistic.
Intuitive: The Baby Development Activities App makes use of intuitive design with a user-friendly interface to allow users to easily scroll between months and get an overview of baby development in the first year.
Platforms: The Baby Development Activities App will capitalise on the iPad retina display to deliver high quality graphics and images and high definition video content. Although specifically designed for the iPad, the next iteration will focus on iPhone/iPod app version.
Functionality: Users will have the ability to view milestones month-by-month for the first year. They will have easy access to activities that will stimulate the development of each milestone and be able to test their knowledge and expectations of baby development in the first year.
Features currently under development include:
* Milestone Quiz
* Milestone map with easy-to-view overview of development for the first 12 months of life
* Activities to stimulate the development of each milestone
