So… what exactly does the app do?

It allows you to fly a helicopter around your room, picking up and dropping off passengers along the way. Obviously it’s one for the kids, but still cool!

Hi Alex, the app in itself is basically a rotatable 3D Helicopter with passengers. More of a toy than a game. You get calls from passengers, put the phone down to pick them up, fly away to a destination (you decide where), put down the phone down again and they get out and say thanks. Basically a digital toy for kids. The more you use your imagination and come up with places around you, the more fun it gets. We at Toca Boca wanted to explore fantasy play and get kids to move around a bit. The reactions we got from kids was very different from the stuf they previously had played with using ipods or iphones. They started pretending instead of just focusing on the screen.
