We’re very excited to have been featured over at Geek Dad last week.
The Developer Profile, written by Daniel Donahoo, outlines the INKids story and how a few chance emails helped us create Futaba Classroom Games – a game which “meets the needs of children learning, socializing, interacting through the screen”.
The development of Futaba, has definitely been a learning experience, in many different ways. We have had to re-approach the initial idea a few different times, and we’re glad that our latest release has struck a note with teachers (and reviewers like Dan).
INKids, along with Dave (the game’s inventor), will continue “listening to parents and teachers to help them design apps that best meet the needs of children.” In fact, we’ve already begun including some new game sets requested by teachers in the last week.
If you haven’t had the chance to read it yet, the full profile is available here:
If you’re using Futaba and you are having problems using your Dropbox account to create content, the first things to check is that your wi-fi connection is not turned on. In order to use the Dropbox function, please make sure that wi-fi is selected to ‘on’. You can find this in your iPad’s settings menu:
Settings> Wi-Fi> On and select your network.
If you’ve found that your wi-fi is indeed turned on and you’re still unable to link your Dropbox account, try uninstalling the app from your device and reinstall it. In this case you’ll be prompted to ‘Purchase’ the Futaba Word Games again but rest assured you won’t be double charged as Apple keeps a record of all previous purchases in your account. Once you’ve done this then please try to connect to Dropbox once more.
If you are still unable to use the Dropbox after trying both of these things, please contact us immediately by emailing email@example.com
If you’ve just updated your iPhone version of our Flashcards app, you can easily restore the missing categories (if you’ve purchased the upgrade before).
Users who have previously purchased the “Upgrade” will still have access to all 5 languages and all existing flashcard categories. If you’ve previously purchased the upgrade you will now have the “Premium Version” when you install the app and restore purchases. There’s more info on restoring purchases here if you are having any problems:
