Children

This page shows everything I have written, edited or project managed on the subject of Children:


Helped develop, write the questions for and edit an iPad quiz game designed to use the Gabble image database. (October 2013):
 
Pikipik
Find the link, guess the word and beat the competition in this addictive words and pictures game.



Gabble is striving to build a universal visual language to power next generation 'text-to-image' apps. Pikipik, released in October 2013, was our first picture/meaning game. I helped develop and test the app and write and edit the questions for the game.
