7-Year-Old Becomes Youngest Mobile Game App Maker

A 7-year-old girl has become the youngest person to ever make a mobile game app, according to Mashable.

First grade student Zora Ball’s game app premiered last month at the University of Pennsylvania’s Bootstrap Expo, which showcased projects built using the Bootstrap programming method that helps facilitate the app development process.

We’re proud of Zora and her amazing feat, and think the Bootstrap language could be a great way to make it easier for everyone to make mobile game apps like Chinese Fride, our Chinese game app for kids.

Therefore technically this software is only intended for customers who purchased CS2 in the past.

We wanted to give a quick heads up to educators and developers that Adobe has officially made Creative Suite 2 free to download via Adobe’s website.
