SylvanPlay Network Apps, by LSF Inc – Sylvan Learning has launched a new, educational, mobile game network for kids 6 – 9. This old company has a fresh new look! To build this new educational game network, Sylvan joined forces with Fingerprint, a global technology company, to partake in its well-established digital platform with its proven network model. Once again, Sylvan Learning is back in the business of elementary education and they are off to a good start. The kid friendly graphics are adorable and the variety of games hit on all content areas. The company plans to continue to expand upon the nine app titles, with the content eventually reaching the sixth grade. The games, developed to help students build a strong foundation and foster critical skills in reading, math, science, geography, strategic thinking and more, include:

We would like to suggest one improvement for a future update, to incorporate all in-app purchases into the initial price. A much easier model when used in the school setting.
