What's it about?
KIDZBYTE is a kid-friendly news aggregator geared toward Indian school children. It covers a range of topics, including sports, science and technology, food, education, and global news. Each article is summarized in kid-friendly snippets with links out to the original news source. At the end of each news post, kids will find a quiz question relevant to the topic of the article, although the answer can't always be found in the post itself. Kids can earn points for correct answers or fewer points for more than one attempt. Kids also earn points for visiting the app each day, taking part in activities, and referring friends. These points put them in the running to win various prizes each day/week. Kids can also purchase power-ups and subscriptions that double their points for quiz questions. Each post also contains an activity suggestion for kids who want to dig deeper into a subject. Kids can "like" a post, share it, and/or bookmark it to read later. There's also an option for kids to have a post read aloud. An achievement section tracks kids point totals, levels, ranks, and more.
