Grolly’s Memory: Our Latest Educational App is Out Now!

Friday, den 18. May 2012 | Schlagwörter:

goodbeans proudly presents „Grolly’s Memory: Learning & Matching Animals for Kids”, an engaging memory game especially developed for young pre-schoolers. The lovingly designed graphics and animations are ideal for their little hands and offer all kids over 2 years the perfect introduction into the memory games world.

Accompanied by the cute monster Grolly, the well beloved hero from goodbeans’ successful kids app “Grolly’s Animal Adventures”, your child can train and sharpen their memory in a fun way while learning and matching exotic animals.

In a stimulating and fun challenge, children search for the right pair of animals by tapping the cards one by one. Every time a matching pair of cards is discovered, a lively animation of the found animal is shown and the names of the animals will be learned by listening and seeing.

Simple rules and an intuitive interface make the educational app easy to use and fun to play. Translated into both German and English, there are three different levels of difficulty to cater for the needs of each and every child.

„Grolly’s Memory: Learning & Matching Animals for Kids” currently has three available chapters: Asia, Africa and North Pole. Every chapter has a high level of re-playability with there being more than 15 different animals with animations in each one. The Asia chapter is available now for free in the App Store.

Verena at TEDxBerlin

Monday, den 6. February 2012 | Schlagwörter:

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a global nonprofit organization, focusing on “ideas worth spreading” through conferences.The intention is to find and support people with outstanding ideas and new projects, and to give these people a voice at the TEDxBerlin.

As each speaker is only given a limited 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging way possible, the speaker must present their thoughts clearly in an organized manner, with strong points for others to take away. Talks are available for free online viewing under a Creative Commons license, at TED.com.

On the 21st of November, last year’s TEDxBerlin took place with “High Energy” as the focus of talks. Our CEO Verena took part with her talk “Don´t be the boiled frog – jump”.

Verena spoke about companies getting too comfortable in their comfort zone that they start to lose their alertness and energy to constantly reinvent themselves. The companies behave like the frog in the warm water that misses the point to jump out of the pot before the water starts boiling. She explained that companies need to continually question and re-invent themselves in order to adapt to changing market conditions and create new needs. Anyone who reacts slowly, or in a pretentious or arrogant manner and does not leave their comfort zone, will not succeed. This is due to the fact that being successful in the past or in the present is no guarantee of future success.

At Young Internet, we have used brainstorming, innovation-days, open communication and lessons learned, to turn a browser into a mobile company. Verena shared 5 lessons learnt from Young Internet on how the company got themselves out of the hot water and how other companies can do the same.

The topic came naturally to Verena who strongly believes that the companies that will be successful in the future, are those that do not wait until the water boils but that stay entrepreneurial, stay hungry and actually jump to reach the next level.
