Emantra’s educational and consumer application development arm, Punflay has seen an increase in popularity of some of its award-winning educational apps. Out of the 20,000 educational apps available on iTunes, seven were briefly showcased during the Apple Educational Keynote Presentation in New York, while outlining the potential of educational apps on iTunes. Two of Punflay’s educational apps Frog Dissection & Cell Structure were mentioned by Apple Vice President, Phil Schiller.
A multiple award winner, Frog Dissection is an ethical and educative alternative to real animal dissection. Available for desktops, laptops, Macs, iPads, netbooks and interactive whiteboards, and recognized by animal rights advocacy groups, the Frog Dissection App enables students to learn animal anatomy without needless animal culling.
