Big plans for 2015

Dec 23rd, 2014

Posted by William

Tired of Tonic Tutor games not working on your favourite Apple device? We're working on a Tonic Tutor iOS app that will work on Apple phones and tablets that should be ready for release next year. We also hope to release an Android version of Tonic Tutor at some point in the future. Please check out the teaser screenshot below and let us know what you think.

We hope everyone has a great holiday break. See you in 2015!

Any progress updates on the iOS release? Several of my students and their parents are very anxious to TonicTutor on their iPads :D

Hi Jason,

We're continuing to work on porting everything over to iOS, but since I'm the only developer working on the project it's quite a enormous task to complete. We don't have a release date to share yet, but we're happy with the progress we've made so far. We do hope to be in a position to release a beta version of the app before the end of the year.

Hi there!
I used to use this program a lot and it was wonderful, but a lot of maintenance, so I put it aside for a time. Now that there is the possibility of an app, I would like to try using it again. My students absolutely loved the games. I just searched for the app on my iphone but couldn't find it. Is it under "Tonic Tutor" or is there a different name?
Thanks! Looking forward to getting back into this wonderful program.

Will the games be available on Android devices as well?

Hi Jennifer,

Yes, we definitely want to target Android devices, but we will be focusing on getting the iOS version out first. Once that's done, Android will be the next project in the pipeline.

We're hoping to release it sometime in the Spring. We may release a beta version that doesn't have all of the games, adding the games in as updates, just so we can get it out there for everyone a bit sooner.

We're really glad to hear that! We're looking forward to having an iOS version of Tonic Tutor out there for everyone that's been requesting it.

This is wonderful news, Will! I am using the iPad in all of my lessons.

Hi Allen, thanks for letting us know that you've been using a tablet in your lesson. We're hoping it makes it easier to keep students engaged and working on their Tonic Tutor lessons, especially if they have a tablet at home.

Really looking forward to the new app! Thanks for working on developing one! I will use Tonic Tutor so much more in app form just because the iPad is always accessible in every lesson.

Hi Grace, thanks the feedback. We're really excited to hear that people are looking forward to a tablet version.
