YooHoo begins year-long app store roll out thumbnail

Aurora World has kicked off a string of YooHoo app release with a trio of launches on the Google Play and App Store.

Available now for smart devices are the YooHoo & Friends Coloring Book, which arrived in March, and Samsung Augmented Reality (AR) Sticker, which offers 10 different YooHoo themes that can be used in a variety of Samsung apps. The most recent launch is YooHoo Puzzle Pop, which joined Google Play in open beta – or test mode – with a full, public release for Android and iOS pegged for Q3 this year.

But this is just the start for Aurora and YooHoo. More applications are now at the development stage and all set for launch this winter. They include YooHoo Minigames from Dev Game, character collecting apps from Tap Tap Tales and digital content from Butterfly-effected GmbH that includes digital wallpapers, icon packs, themes, stickers and watch faces.

Jay Noh, Director of Content Business, Aurora World, says: “With its striking design, colourful characters and engaging storylines, YooHoo to the Rescue is the perfect inspiration for a variety of apps focused on YooHoo and his friends and adventures. We expect many more YooHoo apps to follow the success of the three already available.”

The new 3D CGI 52 x 11’ animated children’s show, YooHoo to the Rescue, an Aurora World co-production with Italy’s Mondo TV, launched its first season of 26 episodes on 15 March 2019, broadcasting in 20 different languages and showing in 190 countries. It is one of the first Asian pre-school IPs to be produced as a Netflix Original Series.
