Our Story

It was October 2011 when our co-founder, David, laid hands on his first iPad. He saw the incredible potential of this device as a platform, and set out to create his own app. He buried himself in programming tutorials and relied on his experience in graphic design, and in a few months released his first app.

Up until this point, his sister Jennifer had been completely against introducing her 4 young kids to video/computer games. But when she saw what a useful tool it could be in teaching her son to learn colors, she teamed up with David to cater his apps toward early childhood education. Thus, Brainster Apps was born.

This brother/sister team had already had years of experience working together. From a very young age, the siblings were constantly creating projects from building multi-story cardboard houses to producing home music videos. Although app development is a more sophisticated version of those childhood creations, the same passion and imagination that drove them still inspires new creations today.

David and Jennifer hope that through their apps, kids will feel equally motivated to become independent learners and creators so that they too can grow up to be innovators and have the confidence to pursue their dreams.
