Lumiappaday #188: 100th Day Of School demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800 (Elmo, Sesame Street)

| May 21, 2012 | 7 Replies

100th Day of School is the Sesame Street app that Nokia showed off at Nokia World. It’s available for Symbian too at Nokia Store: http://store.ovi.com/content/233031 

100th day of school is a children’s educational app that can help with their reading.

  • The pages will turn with a book like animation.
  • Tap on the words and have them read out loud. The words reappear in larger font and each word being said is highlighted in red.
  • Tap Elmo and he’ll ask you some questions.

I just noticed there is no marketplace link for this as it’s a Nokia Lumia exclusive:

You’ll have to go through your Nokia Lumia’s Marketplace app.

BTW, coincidentally there’s a post from NokConv today about the Sesame street app and lifelong reading:

“We used interactivity to drive attention back to the book. In many apps today, interactivity takes a way from the reading experience, we wanted to avoid that.”
