Apostrophe Power and Sentence Hero
In 2015, I worked with a team of educators and software engineers to develop two mobile learning apps, one titled Apostrophe Power and the other titled Sentence Hero. These apps are games that can be used by students to improve their literacy skills. My role in this project was to develop the apps for iOS devices (iPads and iPhones), while another team member developed the apps for Android devices. I used the Swift programming language, along with the SpriteKit game development framework to develop these apps.
The iOS versions of these apps are available as free downloads on the App Store:
