Zeebu Launches New Peek-A-GO Game for Kids

Comments

Zeebu is a hot company right now making BlackBerry apps for children. The latest app, Peek-A-GO, is designed for children 0-3 years old. The controls are simple: press the buttons or touch the screen and see who’s hidden behind the curtain. Just like Baby-GO, the keys are locked so your child can’t make any calls or send accidental emails and phone calls can be sent to voicemail while the game is being played.

Peek-A-GO is available at a very reasonable introductory price of $2.99. Check them out in App World.

Wilfrid Laurier School of Business offers BlackBerry MBA program

Comments

This isn’t breaking news as it went live about a month ago, but it slipped under my radar and I have to post it. The Canadian Wilfrid Laurier School of Business and Economics in Waterloo, Ontario (near RIM headquarters), offers an MBA BlackBerry pilot program. The program puts a BlackBerry Curve 8900 in the hands of every student, as well as provides them with education and collaboration tools for their device.

The faculty even talks about using push technology to push content to their students’ BlackBerrys, and will be recording metrics to gauge which content is being accessed.

So if you’re a student in this program, feel free to hit up BlackBerry Cool for software and accessories. I have no problem giving you some cool applications for the device to test what it can do.

BabyGo by Zeebu is a free and healthy BlackBerry app for babies

Have you ever been around a baby or child and watched them grab for your BlackBerry? We place so much attention and value on our BlackBerry devices and children recognize this. In the same way that kids love handling money because of its value to their parents, they love playing with a BlackBerry too.

The folks at Zeebu have made a free application that is unique in that it focuses on babies and children as their target market. BabyGo is a free app that is not only fun for your child, but healthy too!

The application is simple: load the app, give the device to your baby and let them play with it. The letters on the keyboard respond with the relative audio and visuals. Press the letter ‘a’ and hear a cute voice say “a.” The above video shows you just how simple and fun the app can be. You don’t have to worry about accidental emails or calls either. All keys are intercepted so your device is protected.

We pay so much attention to our BlackBerry devices and now, just as we teach our kids to share, we too can share our toys.
