Samsung is working with the developer community with access to quality content, to promote the creation of interesting educational content. The company commits the tools, resources, technical content and support that app developers require, to create rich applications optimised for its Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones, as well as the Galaxy Note. The local app developers that Samsung is working with for this range of edutainment apps are B-Secure Technologies, Prep Zone, iQ-hub and Skoolbo.  

"Customers are increasingly mobile and they are constantly on the look-out for on-the-go content which can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
