Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. This week Bubulu Labs debuts their creative canvas for the iPhone and iPod touch. iYuva, with a custom update made just for Halloween, is an art studio that lets your own imagination drive the output. iYuva does require registration since the creations are accessible and sharable with friends and family members (on the device and the web), but once you register there is a quick login for returning users. Also, take some time to familiarize yourself and your child with the menu options. Understanding how the app works first (changing colors, sizes and shapes) will ease you into play.
What is your app about? iYuva (Yuva means “youth” in Sanskrit) is an app your child will love to play and immerse herself in. It has lots of shapes and lots of colors to choose from. This app gives you 3 sets of abstract shapes to drag, resize, rotate and color with. The results are delightful drawings limited only by your imagination. Our regular updates to the app keep the drawings fresh and thematic.
Why is it special? iYuva encourages all parents and caregivers a platform to share and seek responses to the child’s artwork. Once your child has created his masterpiece, these drawings are available on the accompanying website for you to share on Facebook, Twitter or via ecards. So the drawings can be accessed anywhere, not just on the device. The latest iYuva update is boo-tiful – it is a “Halloween” swatch to make spooky spiders and goofy pumpkins.
What’s in it for me? For App Friday, October 29th, iYuva for iPhone and iPod touch will be FREE on the iTunes App Store. Download before 8pm US Pacific Time before app reverts back to original pricing.
