APP: Make It Pop

In 2011, Alma Loveland started Tryangle Labs with three friends to create children’s apps for iPad and iPhone. Make It Pop uses eye-catching, whimsical illustrations to teach numbers, letters, shapes, sizes, and colors. The app is designed with the preschooler in mind, but has also been tested with great success by older children with special needs and motor skill delays.

Alma and Mike created the illustrations of children that are used in the app. Alma also designed the balloon game, the bubble gum game, and the app interface, including the clever menu that prevents children from accidentally launching other apps (such as Safari or the App Store) while playing the games.

Apple Featured Make It Pop as New and Noteworthy and What’s Hot when it was released.
