MVp - Sitemap child sign in flow version 1

This was the first sign in flow that was created for the child log in. We sent this to Apple in order to get approval (because of parental restrictions) before moving forward.

Skybrary Quests

Introducing Skybrary quests, a features I helped ideate into a new addition. Originally, Skybrary is a digital library full of educational books and videos. Skybrary,  allows users to select any book or video to read but without any guidance necessarily. Skybrary Quests gives kids the chance to read with more direction with the hopes of getting a badge or sticker to add to their collection.
