Today I was looking at the newly revamped developer dashboard on www.dev.windows.com where you can see a lot of stats about the applications you have uploaded to the Windows 8 Store. Whilst I was having a look round I noticed that you could see which web pages linked to your application in the store. One of the websites which had given my app the most “hits” was one called Fractus Learning.
I thought I would head over to their website and have a look at what they had to say about my application and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had written a list about the Top 10 application for Students and Teachers, and my app featured at number 8 — how apt.
In particular Fractus said the app is:
Ideal for older students, The Solar System Simulation allows users to explore the affects of gravity on land masses in space.
I was especially pleased with this after reading what Fractus are all about:
Fractus Learning is a growing team based in Dublin, Ireland working with educators around the globe to promote cutting edge technology skills and tools. We strive to build amazing learning environments where students are engaged and inspired and classrooms that are a joy to teach, work and learn in.
Our goal is to motivate, excite and enhance the teaching skill set with the use of technology, making sure educators are always on the cutting edge.
So you could say they know what they’re on about!
Thanks Fractus, look out for some excting updates to the simulation soon!
