During the app camp, the youth worked on 4 stories for both iPhone and Android devices.  They also worked on an amazing iPhone game using COCOs 2D and Photoshop frame animation.  The game was developed (along with the graphics, weapons and sound effects) by the youth.  It is expected to be released in the month of August 2014.

The Native American Language and Cultural App is now becoming an invaluable part of a larger set of Tribal technology tools. American Indian Tribes are relying on mobile technology in colleges and universities because they deliver an immediate multimedia experience in both an in-expensive and portable device. Traditional online study resources are supporting mobile platforms and making it easier for students and teachers alike to share and distribute content like news articles, quizzes, tests, diagrams and video tutorials.

The Blackfeet Community College of Montana, USA are using iPhone and Android mobile Apps to deliver their Blackfeet Language called “Nitsi Poh sin”.  The Blackfeet Nitsi Poh sin language department is an important department within the school.  The college has identified the importance of utilizing mobile technology to deliver their Native American Language.  The college currently has 2 apps available on the Android Google Play store and Apple iTunes for the iPhone.

27000 Downloads of the Ojibway App

 

 

27,000 App Download Milestone

The Ojibway Language and People App has reached a critical milestone in the month of March 2014.  That milestone saw the Ojibway iPhone and Android App achieve the 27,000 downloads mark on iTunes and Android phones and tablets.

“Wow, this is pretty amazing considering that our App was created just to help young people learn how to speak their ancestral language. When we launched the App – it was immediately picked up by schools throughout the province of Ontario, Manitoba and within Ojibway Tribes in the United States” – Darrick Glen Baxter, iPhone App Developer (March 12, 2014).

This particular milestone is important because it represents about ten thousand new downloads per year with 20% of current users acquiring software updates in the first 14 days.  These updates tell us that our users are aware of the App and willing to update the App content.  We know that our App users are dedicated users and continue to keep the app on their phone.  The latest update was 12 months ago and featured a totally new Map system outlining Ojibway language groups in Canada and the United States.

Majority of Ojibway App updates from iPhone Users

Although the majority of downloads have been on the Apple iPhone and iPad devices, the App is seeing an increase in updates from Android tablets and smartphones. This may be because users are a custom to seeing our software on the Apple platform and may not be aware that we are also available on Android.

“We have seen Android device downloads growing in the past quarter. This is leading to a greater percentage of total downloads. Our Ojibway App is doing well with the US Tribes” – – Darrick Glen Baxter, iPhone App Developer (March 12, 2014).

Native American App Promotion and Media Outlets

A contributing factor to the sudden growth of the App user base maybe the media attention that we’ve been getting over the winter.  CBC Canada Now, Global News, CTV, Metro News, Indian Country Media Network, NPR News and other media outlets have done stories on the App. All the positive publicity has lead to discussions about Apps and their role in the preservation of Native American languages. Outlets across Canada have promoted stories on both radio networks, television and social media.

Social media has been a strong tool and is being utilized every day to promote each of our new Native American and First Nation apps.  Ogoki Learning currently has a Ogoki Learning Facebook Page that includes over 1,300 fans from all over the world.
