Logo1 (1)Team: NxtApps

Description: We are all about bringing you new, innovative, and cool ways of interacting with your family, friends and colleagues using your smartphones and tablets. Our products range from Awesome games (no surprise there!) to handy productivity tools using features already built into your devices.

As a parent do you feel your children are getting increasingly more drawn into their phone/tablet games and as a result do not really get to socialise with their play mates? We develop Apps to specifically address this issue, our games are designed so that 1. they are really cool! and 2. players need to physically interact (cooperate/compete) with each other to succeed.

As a college or university student, or any board game enthusiast wouldn’t be cool to play your favorite board games, with your phones/tablets being the components/tokens/tiles?!

You can check out our range of games and productivity tools from our very own NxtApps store which is a portal to next generation apps and games. The portal is a market place that is itself an application on smartphones and tablets. The portal provides instant access to the apps developed by the developer team using next generation technology for smartphones and tablets. These applications and games blur the lines between the digital and physical world and allow the devices to interact with their surroundings in new and innovative ways.
