Hey Chinese Fridge fans, we wanted to let you know that an update to the app has been submitted so that it is officially out of beta testing.
The app approval process generally takes a week, so you can expect Chinese Fridge to hit the app store live sometime around Friday, February 1.
The app will be available via the app store around then, but until then please note the link will not be active.
Though the app is no longer in beta, we’re already working on the next update which will add new special blocks to make game play more exciting.
Thanks to all the users who participated in beta testing! We got a lot of great feedback and will begin adding new features and improvements as we review the feedback.

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.

Part of the reason we developed our Chinese Fridge game app for kids was because we couldn’t find many suitable, fun games for children that could effectively teach kids Chinese.
However, even though the resources are limited, we did find one guy who has some great game concepts on his website, which he built to provide Chinese lessons for his kids.
It looks like he built the website several years ago, because the design and game play appear to be quite dated, but even so, we’re very impressed and by his dedication and passion for Chinese to build these games.
