What's New

Dear parents, we have updated the Word Factory App for you!

WHAT’S NEW: „The big word factory“ is now optimized for iOS 9. You can install the app now on your iPad as well as your iPhone to have it with you at all times. The navigation was improved by implementing multi-touch, so children’s hands can more easily navigate and play with it. We have also improved audio for even more joy while listening to the app.

PLEASE NOTE: In the future, there will be only one version of the app for iPad AND iPhone in the store. Unfortunately, we can’t merge the two previous app versions, therefore this version for iPhone won’t be maintained any longer.

SUPPORT: Should you have any problems with our apps, we would be glad to get an Email from you at [email protected]

We recommend: Janosch: Oh, wie schön ist Panama.

Have fun! Your App-Team at mixtvision Digital

App Description

Paul and Marie are living in a land where people hardly ever speak. You have to buy and swallow words to be able to pronounce them. And words are expensive, especially the really good ones. So Paul collects words he finds on the street: „Cherry, Dust, Chair“. He wants to give them to Marie, to show her how much he likes her.
„The great word factory“ talks about the world of words and the power of language. And the fact that in concerns of the heart, it doesn’t always matter what you say but rather how you say it. The two children, Paul and Marie, are the best example for that.
