Today’s interview is with John Ng of Mezmedia Pte Ltd, developer of Bamba Apps. Please visit his website, Facebook and Twitter pages and thank him for sponsoring #minimadness!

John, thank you for participating our interview. Please tell us a little about yourself.

Bamba is about toys – interactive toys. Our apps aim to help parents educate children through play, firing up their imagination and creativity. Children love to make-believe and love to play with other kids, so we design our apps to be fun and have some form of social interaction.

Bamba Ice Cream Screen PreviewHow did the idea for your app come about?

Bamba Ice Cream was very successful, so we decided to create something along similar lines. The other thing that kids love so much (and something which parents always deny them) is fast food – fries, burgers and sodas.

 

Bamba Post Office Screen PreviewAnd how long was the process from the original idea to the release of the app?

Pretty quick. We were working on another project after Bamba Post Office, but we weren’t very happy with the idea, so we dropped it and worked on Bamba Burger instead. We were so excited by the idea that we finished it in 6 weeks.

Did you hire a developer or do it yourself?

We have a team of developers and designers that work each project.

What has been the hardest obstacle you have had to overcome in the development process?

Not much difficulty. When you have a clear idea on how it should work, and have planned everything out on paper, there should not be any major hiccups come development.

Have you had much support during the development process (from family, peers, Apple Inc.)?

We have our own CEO – a four-year old girl – who decides if the work is up to scratch.

What are your plans for the future? Will you be developing any more apps?

Yes. Many more. We enjoy it thoroughly.

Bamba Pizza Screen PreviewWhat sort of feedback has your app been receiving so far?

Mainly good. Many seem to like the ‘disgusting’ ingredients we’ve put in like octopus tentacles, toilet paper and so on.

And finally, what advice would you give to anyone considering creating their own app?

It’s very competitive. Find a niche market. Development is easy. Getting your app heard is hard.

Thank you so much for talking with us today and sharing a bit about your company.  We really appreciated the chance to get to know you!

Alison, the American iMum is from Massachusetts. She lives there with her two sons and husband. In their spare time, they enjoy playing outside, enjoying nature and of course testing apps and fantastic products on their devices. My older son loves technology and loves testing out the “latest and newest” apps and tech. I love sharing information about apps and products with others to help them make decisions without feeling overwhelmed with all of the choices.
