Unlike most apps, 90% of proceeds go to charity, in this case to the Tyler Foundation, helping them support families of children with cancer in Japan.
Some backstory here, one of the Tyler Foundation’s supporters approached us about creating a storybook featuring his daughter Juliette. Taking inspiration from the real Juliette’s favorite bedtime books, this original story was crafted with a very similar Juliette as the main character (we even copied her shoes!)
So far all the feedback has been extremely favourable.
The story is adorable and simple – Juliette receives a red balloon as a present from her father, and proceeds to have all kinds of wonderful adventures with it.
Each page is brightly colored and sweet, Juliette is spunky, and there are little interactive things to do as the story rolls along.
A sweet story, a darling app, and a good cause. This is a keeper.
You can see a video introducing the app on this page.
Please help us support the Tyler Foundation and buy this app!
