Spinlight takes gold at the Parents' Choice Awards.
Champaign, Illinois, March 14, 2013 — It’s official. Spinlight Studio has just received one of the highest honors in educational apps, taking home the gold Parents’ Choice Award for Geography Drive USA. Recently featured on Fox News, the fact-packed geography app also earned Editor’s Choice from Children’s Technology Review, making it the flagship title of a company quickly carving out a reputation for quality education apps.
The cross-country quiz game for players 8 and up was declared a “definite must-have!” by the prestigious organization, which has been helping parents discover the best in children’s education for 35 years. And it wasn’t the company’s only honor at the event. Swapsies Jobs — a fun mix and match game that helps children learn about 10 fun occupations — also took home an award, doubling the company’s Parents’ Choice Award count.
“It’s been an amazing couple of years,” said Matt Hutton, CEO and co-founder. “To pick up two Parent’s Choice Awards our first year out was amazing. Now almost half of our catalog has been recognized by one of the most prestigious organizations in the country.”
While the award marks a highlight for the company, they’re not wasting anytime resting on their laurels. Later this month, Spinlight will be releasing its tenth official title, this time focusing on spelling and early reading. “There are at least 30 titles in our current pipeline,” says Hutton. “And we’re working as fast as possible to bring them to our growing list of fans.”
