More About the App

“Lack of self-confidence underlies most of the problems tweens and teens have with their peers,” says Annie Fox, who has been answering email from kids and teens around the world and offering advice since 1997. “I wrote the Middle School Confidential series to help kids build their sense of self and make choices that reflect who they really are.”

Built with Corona SDKWith richly layered audio made up of movie-like sound effects and music, Be Confident in Who You Are makes full use of iPad technology. The app is designed for 8– to 14-year-olds, including those who aren’t enthusiastic readers. Be Confident in Who You Are is the first in a series of kids’ story apps to be produced by Electric Eggplant, the multimedia production company founded in 1992 by Annie and her husband, David Fox, both award-winning game designers. 

“I’m totally jazzed to see my Middle School Confidential books on the iPad and other mobile devices,” says Annie Fox. “Since we first developed a Sesame Street computer game for Children’s Television Workshop in 1979, David and I have been creating content that connects kids with technology and helps them develop confidence and get along better with others. With a story like Be Confident in Who You Are and the dynamic power of mobile device technology, we’re now putting thought-provoking entertainment and solutions into the hands of kids who are dealing with social-emotional issues right now.”

Designed in a format familiar to fans of Marvel and DC Comics apps, Be Confident in Who You Are enables the reader to interact with the story by zooming in for frame-by-frame reading or zooming out again for a page-by-page view. An auto-save feature remembers your place in the story and a menu page permits jumping to any of the eight chapters. Special Meet the Cast pages let young fans learn more about them. The app is designed for the hard-to-reach “tween” age group, reluctant readers, parents, and teachers who use technology in the classroom.
