First week of GenerationApp is all about design – how to nail it. I’ve been reading the guides, sketching etc. Before I post the sketches, I thought of posting what the app is meant for. Here is a short abstract.
Nayati (Sanskrit verb: Guide) is a guided learning app for children which enables them sketch and draw better. This can be used individually or in a class like setting. It enables a child to pick a sketch, trace it and get rated. Child can archive (in cloud), proceed to color, choose a different one. Art work can be shared via parent’s social circle (or a private circle for a class environment). Custom samples can be added to sample library in paid version.
This one is inspired from DrawSomething, sample Lucerne education app and the social learning phenomenon. I am not worried about ‘giving away’ my idea, as i believe execution is more important than just the idea. Please leave your suggestions/ comments if you have anything to add/ modify in this app.
