Mirthwerx joins Moms with Apps Association

Mirthwerx is proud to announce our approval to join family friendly gaming association Moms with Apps.  They don’t take just anyone, and founder Laurie Akemann said Mirthwerx is just the kind of people Moms with Apps looks for.

Moms with Apps has three core purposes:

For Developers: To provide collaborative, developer-to-developer support by helping each other learn about the evolving mobile app marketplace. Successful independent software developers will lead to more thoughtful and diverse products in new media.

For Parents: To encourage families to think carefully about how they use technology in the home, and to introduce them to the variety of family-friendly apps in our developer network.

For Kids & Technology: To advocate healthy intersections of kids and family life with technology, where technology becomes an interactive tool for real life, and not a screen to hide behind. We believe there is potential in emerging mobile platforms to meet needs for education, communication and accessibility. We strive for our apps to be high-quality, educational, interactive and useful.

We look forward to sharing with and learning from other developers in the program.

We just found out today that Catch the Monkey has hit the New Family section of the Taiwan iTunes store.  This only makes sense as Taiwan is full of monkeys, and clearly the Taiwanese see this as a vital training app.

Well, Taiwan, go forth and catch some monkeys!  We’re behind you all the way!
