We are a digital technology company focused on creating beautiful apps, digital toys and e-books for the development and enrichment of children.

We believe in apps being fun, enjoyable, and interesting while enhancing learning.

Kids will have so much fun laughing and playing with this app that they will not even realize they are learning! Smart Apps for Kids

Our projects

KrakenEight projects and apps all focus on creating original stories and experiences with partners we seek to grow with.

Who we are

In late 2013, children’s book illustrator Kim Holt and developer Greg Pearson found themselves searching for ways to expand upon their ideas for developing apps. They decided to design and develop a children’s app based on ABC’s. The app, Apha Fun, Let Play from A-J, was released in early 2015. The app was well received so they decided to dive in and create "Alpha Fun, Come Play with me!" They also began working with others to create children’s book apps and other educational applications which are now in the works. In July 2015, Kim and Greg founded KrakenEight as a place to develop and grow these ideas.
