Samsung launches Angry Birds and SingTel mio TV PLAY apps for Smart TV

The two new apps joins more than 400 other apps available for the Samsung Smart TV, with more to come in the next few months.

Angry Birds is developed by Rovio Entertainment. Throughout game play, all actions - including level of difficulty selection and screen zoom in/out - are performed using motion control. Players can activate the unique skills of each bird and even control the game’s trademark slingshot action using arm movement enabled by the built-in camera.

Four interactive edutainment apps developed by the local developer community will be launched in September 2012.

These apps are a result of a joint call-for-proposal for the development of educational TV apps for the Samsung Smart TV platform and ecosystem announced in September 2011 with the Media Development Authority of Singapore’s (MDA) Interactive Digital Media Programme Office (IDMPO).

The apps, Yummy Science, Calculus, Ferog in Well, My First World, will help promote interest self-learning at home and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
