With millions of iOS downloads under its belt, New York-based Tinybop is taking its educational apps to Android devices for the first time.
Five of the publisher’s popular apps—Weather, Homes, The Earth, Simple Machines and Skyscrapers—have launched on Google Play through Tinybop’s US$9.99/year subscription-based Explorer’s Library.
To gain access, parents can subscribe to the apps on Google Play and download the Tinybop Explorer’s Pass app, which acts as a portal for downloading the games on any given device.
Tinybop is making the move at an opportune time, with Android reaching 88% of the market share of all smartphones at the end of last year.
The company has two libraries available on iOS, Explorer’s Library and Digital Toys (which is not yet available on Android). Its breakout hit, The Human Body, launched in 2012 and has been downloaded six million times to date.
