So deploying PhoneGap to an Android went okay but once I deployed one to an iOS device, the app overlapped on the status bar.

To fix this problem, add these two lines in config.xml.

And in your index.html’s Javascript code, when the device is ready, call StatusBar.overlaysWebView(false);

That’s it!

I had read in some forum posts that you need to also place this in config.xml

Well, it did not work. I have no idea why but calling that Javascript code instead was the one that worked for me. Perhaps this XML tag only works through Cordova’s CLI (Command Line Interpreter).

ZyroMath City Count is an integrated switch-accessible runner-game for young children and children with special needs that keeps kids math motivated. Kids can test their reflexes as their robot Zyro races through the city, collecting stars and power-ups that give them special powers. Kids just touch to jump and avoid obstacles, and can use their math points to buy super-power characters and prizes in the ZyroStore.

The key feature that this game caters also to children with special needs is equally important because there are not that many kind of games for them out there.

So! Children love running games. Anything that moves in color they appreciate it a lot. However, ZyroMath also has some educational parts in it. Children can learn to count up to 100 by ones and tens. The game is linked to math standards so you can use its game play to reinforce Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals.

ZyroMath City Count incorporates a drill and practice mode to provide a fun, engaging and effective way to learn through repetition as well as a challenge test mode to assess learning.

A Beginner, Advanced and Expert mode is available to provide easy options based on the motor skill level or cognitive skill level of the child and the game supports multiple user profiles which I believe is a must these days so users won’t have the hassle experience on having to logout and login again just to play using their profile.

They also have a customizable learning mode than can learn optimal game settings to personalize settings to the needs of the child as well as the option for graphics and music to be graded to make the game suitable for sensory sensitive kids. Its one-touch input helps improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills for children.

This app does not share personal information. There are no in-app purchases or advertisements and development of this application was partially sponsored by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the U.S. Department of Education.

To fully enjoy the features mentioned in this post, head on to Google Play or iTunes to get the app.

Turtle Invaders is a game available for all iOS and Android devices catered specifically to kids. The game play is simple and straightforward. Shoot all turtles using your octopus shooting ink upward while they pass you by.

The graphics look vibrant and the character designs appeal to kids. While young kids may not care about the score since all they have to do is keep on tapping the turtles to hit them, older kids may find getting a high score a challenge.

The turtles at first may look harmless but as you progress through each level, you will find out that they indeed fight back. So get those trigger happy fingers of yours ready because playing Turtle Invaders is an inkfest.

Key features:

  • Fun for all, with additional features to help children with special needs.
  • Fully customizable settings can adjust game options based on the skill level of the individual.
  • Helps in improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills for younger children
