Wonderscope is more than just your usual children’s app. As augmented reality continues to become more popular, the technology is making waves in a number of different app categories, including educational apps for younger learners.
The app does a great job showing how AR can be used to help bring unique stories to life. Kids can see the story anywhere the want and move around the explore and discover the fun worlds.
Kids can also meet, help, and talk to the different characters in the stories to learn more about them. You’ll also be able to take pictures to show off the AR and real world stories. As another noice touch, decisions children make in the app will control and impact the worlds they have entered.
Wonderscope is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. You’ll need an iPhone 6s or later to use the app. On the tablet side, you’ll need an iPad Pro or the 2017 iPad or later.
One story, A Brief History of Amazing Stunts by Astounding People, is included with the app. It allows kids to take part in three iconic students and meet the people that made them happen. They’ll meet real-life characters like Helen Gibson, Hollywood’s first stuntwoman and Betty Bromage, and 88-year-old grandmother that stood on the wing of a biplane in the air.
A second option, Little Red the Inventor, can be unlocked with a $4.99 in-app purchase.
Another story, Wonder’s Land Ringmaster Wanted, should arrive to the app next month.
