Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. Our feature this week is from Julie McCool of SnowGlobeMaker.com. Julie has over 20 years of experience leading products at major software companies, and now has her own brand of apps that encourage family-friendly fun and creativity. Snow Globe Maker apps provide a way to highlight family travel memories by creating a personalized souvenir, straight from your iPhone!
What is your app about? Snow Globe Maker Winter is a creative iPhone app that lets children combine digital photos and beautiful art to create personalized snow globes on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. The app encourages children’s creativity while giving them a fun way to keep in touch with family and friends. Snow Globe Maker creations can be shared in email, posted to Facebook, or saved to the Photo Album. The Snow Globe Maker Winter art includes beautiful illustrations like a polar bear, penguin, and pine cone, holiday art like Santa and his sleigh, and sporty choices like skis, snowboard and sled. Kids and parents can create snow-themed email greetings, post a snow globe to celebrate ski vacations, save and print globes to use as invitations, thank you greetings, scrapbook decorations, gift tags and more.
Why is it special? Recent news highlights the importance of apps that encourage children’s creativity, allowing them to construct different outcomes rather than just solve a puzzle. Snow Globe Maker’s art can be mixed in over 16 million combinations, and kids can add their own photos, giving them unlimited opportunities to create something unique that reflects their personality and tastes. We built the Snow Globe Maker series to give our own kids a creative way to express themselves and make something beautiful and fun. With Snow Globe Maker they can easily create and send a thank you note or a “thinking of you” postcard to connect with family who don’t live nearby. Every part of the snow globe is customizable–including the background, base, five inserts, label, snow and photo style, and zoom level–so the possible creations are infinite.
What’s in it for me? For App Friday September 17th, Snow Globe Maker will be FREE TO DOWNLOAD on the iTunes App Store. But act quickly, regular pricing resumes at about 8pm US Pacific Time on Friday night.
