New additions to the Sami Apps Digital Library

By | our apps, Uncategorized | No Comments

This summer, Sami Apps incorporates new stories into the digital library. Four titles of Kerle the children’s label of the German publisher Herder.

These apps are part of the project Digital Library of Sami Apps. Within the Digital Library we find educational apps based on Fairy tales and Bedtime stories from different publishers. The app of each title includes the adaptation of the book in this new format, with a lively reading and interactive activities complementary for children.

We adapt the Reading for children so that they acquire the reading habit and develop the under-standing of these kids stories included in the Digital Library of Sami Apps.

Antonia & Ole –  First day in school

Antonia & Ole – first day in school is a lovely story working on hopes, fears, doubts entering school. Antonia & Ole soon will go to school, so they visit their school some days before and discover a lot of interesting things and have fun. The app also adds preschool activities like knowing and writing letters, numbers and quantities.

Our experience at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair

By | sami apps | No Comments

We have already returned from the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. We are exhausted we have walked from one side to another, from top to bottom to see all the corners of the fair. The truth has been impressive, there are many publishers who are dedicated to the beautiful art of creating books for boys and girls. But Bologna is also an unforgettable event for illustrators, we have been impressed by the number of highly talented illustrators who pass through the fair.

IMG_8322

In addition, as we have already told you the guests of honor this year have been Catalunya and the Balearic Islands. So the Catalan and Balearic publishers have had a lot of exposure with exhibitions, etc. We loved the hammocks format of the exhibition of illustrators, a good space to be inspired and rest at the same time.

IMG_8300   IMG_8299

In addition, Sami Apps was able to participate in one of the many gatherings organized by the Institut Ramon Llull. Specifically, we were in the talk Transmedia Literature where we talk about literature in different formats and new technological devices. We had as compatriots Manuel Barrios and Anna Mansó of Una mà de contes and Cristina Puig of Boolino.

IMG_8351IMG_8353 IMG_8352IMG_8357

Also we were able to walk through the Digital Area and we knew firsthand the world news in children’s apps. And we also taste the winners with the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award 2017 “Oh!” (Anouck Boisrobert & Louis Rigaud, France) and Toontastic 3D (Google, USA).

We look forward to returning next year!

Arrivederci Bologna!!

Sami Apps on Liber 2016 Book Fair

By | Sami Apps press | No Comments

La semana pasada, del 12 al 14 de octubre, Sami Apps participó en la 34 edición de la Feria Internacional del Libro que cada año promueve la Federación de Gremios de Editores de España. El Liber ha abierto las puertas por primera vez al mundo de las aplicaciones móviles dando cada vez más relevancia a los formatos digitales del libro en papel. De esta forma, la industria editorial tradicional ha podido reconocer en las empresas de apps un nueva oportunidad de negocio, ya que las apps pueden ser el mejor aliado para un libro. Un libro en formato app gana interacción con su usuario y además puede llevar información complementaria para enriquecer su lectura.

IMG_7017

IMG_7016Hemos tenido el placer de compartir la Zona App con grandes empresas del sector como Cubus Games y IClassics. Durante estos días hemos realizado muchísimas reuniones con editoriales y profesionales del ámbito del libro, además de recibir la visita de todos aquellos interesados en nuestra oferta de apps educativas y todos los servicios que podemos llegar a ofrecer.

 

El proyecto principal que Sami Apps ha presentado en el Liber es el de la Biblioteca Digital, que incluye apps educativas en castellano y catalán, y otros idiomas, basadas en cuentos de las editoriales infantiles. La aplicación de cada título tiene la adaptación del libro en este nuevo formato, con una lectura animada y con actividades complementarias interactivas.

Este proyecto nace de la colaboración de Sami Apps con varias editoriales infantiles , y con el apoyo de la Dirección General de Política Lingüística de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Las primeras editoriales que han participado en el proyecto son la Editorial Mediterrània, Publicaciones de l’Abadia de Montserrat y Corimbo. A finales de este año habremos hecho 30 apps dentro de la biblioteca digital para editoriales nacionales e internacionales. En el marco del Liber Sami Apps presentó en rueda de prensa oficial este nuevo proyecto en la que participaron la Sra. Ester Franquesa i Bonet, directora general de Política Lingüística del Departament de Cultura; la Sra. Maria Badia i Cutchet, directora general de Relacions Exteriors del Departament d’Afers i Relacions Institucionals i Exteriors i Transparència; y Lars Gehrmann, CEO de Sami Apps, que explicó todos los detalles del proyecto y invitó a las demás editoriales a participar en la Biblioteca Digital.

IMG_7021     IMG_7031    IMG_7028

Sami Apps nació en 2014 con la misión de ofrecer apps educativas y multilingües, actualmente ofrecemos 15 apps en 25 idiomas distintos. Hemos conseguido varias menciones y premios, entre ellos El Chupete a mejor app educativa del 2015. Nuestras aplicaciones están disponibles para móviles, tablets y también en smarts TV.
