Ideas for using the Sorting template

When looking for app ideas, think about things that:

  • we usually sort,
  • can be shaped to each other,
  • can be grouped based on a selected feature,
  • are related.

Fun and Education - Replace the default objects in the template with a set of graphics on a selected topic, e.g. natural science, mathematics, language and encourage children to play actively, independently or moderated by a teacher.

Events and Entertainment - Replace the default background in the template with a graphic with the slogan of your event. Put names or elements related to the event on the graphics of falling objects.

Promotion and Advertising - Replace the default objects in the template with your brand logo. Use a background with your corporate identity. Use the template to promote social and product campaigns and upcoming cultural events.
