OZOBOT CHALLENGE APP
Ozobot is a small yet clever robot that teaches children logical thinking and programming using simple, colourful codes. At first, the codes – or labyrinths – were on paper. We made them digital.
Ozobot actually won several Polish and international awards. Its value lies in simplicity – by creating increasingly complex labyrinths for the robot to traverse, children can make it move and issue light commands. This teaches them creative thinking, problem solving and programming. Out mobile app development task was to make it digital by creating an iOS app for an iPad.
The app drew a randomly generated labyrinth for Ozobot to move through and reach the goal. Using simple commands, children can alter its path and have to make sure the road it takes is correct. Blocking some paths and drawing new ones, using the UX/UI design of the app, are the key to success. After the path was made, the user can simply place Ozobot on the iPad’s screen and it moved as directed. The interface was made to be simple and intuitive, to make sure even very young users feel comfortable and focus on fun and problem solving, not on complicated command issuing.

The iOS mobile app development for children was challenging, but mostly rewarding. Making this incredible idea mobile will, hopefully, entice more young talent to become professional programmers.
